Verbal Judo: Talk Your Way Through Confrontations  

August 1, 2000

Law enforcement is about 97 percent verbal interaction and only 3 percent physical interaction, according to a recent Rutgers University study.  In keeping with such findings, a new communications philosophy, called Verbal Judo, has been making an impression on how law enforcement deals with the public.

Use of “Less Lethal”: A Case History  

August 1, 2000

In the early morning hours of Oct. 14, 1998 a call was received at Placer Co. Sheriff's dispatch regarding a report of a suspect armed with a knife and standing in the street behind a four-plex apartment in a high-density population area.  The situation would be quickly ended without the loss of life, but it could easily have been otherwise.

Gaining Ground Through Tactical Tracking  

August 1, 2000

While tracking down fugitives from the law has been going on for thousands of years, this "lost art" is being refined for modern police forces as the new millennium begins.

Firing Practice Helps Make Survival Possible  

August 1, 2000

Doing ‘Whatever it Takes’ To Survive Confrontations  

August 1, 2000

I shrieked as I read the estimate at the auto mechanic's shop for a tune-up on my aging pickup truck.  Alex, the mechanic-in a way only Alex can reply--laughed and said, "Mitch, you cab pay me little bit now for a simple tune-up, or you can let it go and pay me big bucks later for a complete overhaul."

Hoover Dam Police Department  

July 1, 2000

On a typical day at Hoover Dam, it is not unusual to observe tourists peering at the world-famous structure through sunglasses.  The sunglasses worn by Hoover Dam police officers provide the same view of the dam, which lies on the Arizona-Nevada border, but with a different perspective.
