By Scott Smith

Call me skeptical or overly practical when it comes to gear, but I have played with a lot of it over the years, and I’ve learned to ask myself one question before I commit to it: Will this thing make my job easier and help me accomplish my mission?

There is no doubt that one of the major aspects of contemporary law enforcement is the ability to obtain information from the best sources, vet it thoroughly, and disseminate it quickly. The days of retrieving information from your desktop Rolodex are gone. And writing reports with pens and paper is also going the way of the dinosaurs. Computers have become an operational necessity.

Holding Back Home Occupants  

May 1, 2005

By Devallis Rutledge

When you go into a suspect’s home to execute a search warrant, it’s not uncommon to find several people present, whether suspects, family members, or others. Sometimes, occupants may outnumber officers on the scene. This can create problems of safety and control, making it more difficult to carry out the search. Realizing this, the Supreme Court has provided guidelines on the ability of officers to detain, handcuff, and question occupants while a search takes place.

A Second Set of Eyes  

May 1, 2005

By Melanie Basich

Police agencies have come to depend on in-car video systems to capture each shift on camera.

Market Report  

May 1, 2005

By Shelly Feuer Domash

Economically speaking, street drugs and club drugs are commodities. They are mass-produced products subject to fluctuations in price due to changes in supply and demand. The way you track the demand on a commodity is to check its market value.

By Mark Kariya

There are all sorts of things that can take place in or hide in bodies of water. Some will be the result of criminal actions; some will be accidental.

It’s the middle of the night, and I’m sitting in a marked Decatur (Ill.) Police Department Chevy Tahoe with a big dog—a Belgian Malinois named Rico—and Officer Dan Wise, the third-shift K-9 handler.
