He Flees—To Pursue or Not to That is the Question  

November 1, 1998

High-speed pursuits are the most dangerous of all police activities for innocent citizens, regardless of the circumstances!  In my example it was a rural setting at 0300 hours on a straight road with no one else around, except for the other vehicle that became an unwitting rolling roadblock for my pursuit.

Getting You to Pull the Trigger  

November 1, 1998

Despite the officer's repeated pleas for him to drop the weapon, Pergament continues to advance.  Faced with the prospect his own impending death, the officer fires three times, killing Pergament.  Only later does the officer learn the brutal truth: the weapon wielded by the suspect is nothing more than a toy gun.

Suicide by Cop: Getting You to Pull the Trigger  

November 1, 1998

At least one lawman, who has participated in perhaps the only study done on these incidents, prefers to call them "officer-assisted suicides," but whatever the description, they are increasing. What can you do to help ensure that you and your colleagues don't get take down by people with a death wish?

He’s Often on the Right Track  

September 1, 1998

Following a person's track is learned through on-the-job training, and is not developed to a high level of perfection, given the hectic pace most police officers work under.  However, in the world of wildlife law enforcement, mantracking is still frequently used. 

The Beat: Suicide by Cop  

September 1, 1998

I once attended an FBI class on Critical Incident Negotiations which touched on "suicide by cop" and showed videos of different actual cases where people had made the conscious decision to die at the hands of law enforcement.
