Freeway Shootout: Backup Gun to the Rescue  

November 1, 2001

The decision of whether or not to carry a backup gun, while a personal one in most cases, is just as obviously important in this and many other situations.

The Los Alamos forest fire in New Mexico pressed local EOC capabilities to the limits.

Emergency Management and Emergency Operations Centers  

November 1, 2001

Disasters can happen anywhere and, as so poignantly demonstrated in New York, it's our job to manage and mitigate them.

North American Arms Guardian .380  

November 1, 2001

The NAA Guardian is a double-action-only semi-automatic with a fixed barrel fitted inside an open-topped slide. The gun resembles the Seecamp design that single-handedly popularized the pocket pistol so many years ago.

Dealing With It  

November 1, 2001

Hundreds of our own were murdered on September 11, 2001, along with thousands of citizens we were sworn to protect. Terrorism has struck the nation, particularly emergency response personnel. This nation’s police officers have been damaged by these criminal acts of terror; we have been damaged as a group and as individuals.

Members of S.M.I.L.E. (“Safety, Magic in Law Enforcement”) use magic, laughter and fun to raise kids’ awareness of safety and violence prevention.

Scottsdale (Ariz.) PD's Community Relations Unit  

October 1, 2001

The Scottsdale Police Department has a few clowns working for them and that's something of which they're quite proud. Sure, maybe some other departments have clowns working for them, but the Scottsdale clowns have a mission - one they take very seriously.

Too Stupid to Make it as a Stupid Crook  

October 1, 2001

Isn't it funny how one little detail can trip up an idiot in the middle of a holdup?

Along with two law enforcement badges, Deputy Grady Pardue’s Colt .45 six-shooters remain together after almost a century.  The Colt New Service (top gun) was used by Grady to kill two armed robbers in a gunfight in Arcadia, California just prior to World War II.

The Guns Of Grady Pardue  

October 1, 2001

There is something almost mystical about a lawman's guns. Distinctly personal, unlike pens or uniform shoes, a lawman's guns are often as much a partner to them as their flesh-and-blood buddy in the saddle next to them.

Chevy’s 'Ride And Drive’  

October 1, 2001

Chevy's "Ride and Drive" is an opportunity to introduce new technology (in this case, the new Impala police package) to writers and cops from around the country. I rubbed elbows with uniforms from many states and there were plenty of serious, squinty-eyed stares going on as the performance was duly noted in notebooks and on video.

Cell Phone Sense  

October 1, 2001

"Cell phones allow us to go beyond the capabilities of the radio and allow us to communicate with each other and the public. When a cell phone is assigned to an officer, they have voice mail, messaging and Internet access. It frees them up from being in the office."

Propper Tactical Patrol Suit  

October 1, 2001

Specialty uniforms for specialized units are common today. In the "olden" days, one uniform pretty much held sway unless you were a motor cop or a mounted unit. With the need to police dangerous or downright dirty areas, the one-piece "jump" suit is gaining favor.
