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.

Drunk Driver Tells All  

August 1, 1998

The one-way conversation contin­ued until the tranquillity was broken by squealing tires and car horns. Doug looked in the rear view mirror and shouted, "Bill, wake up! We got a crazy coming up behind us, weaving in and out of traffic, forcing people off the road."

Police Corruption Should Concern Every Officer  

August 1, 1998

As of mid-June this year, there were 548 local, state and federal law enforce­ment officers in federal prisons alone ­up from 107 in 1994. An unknown num­ber of other ex-officers are in state lock­ups. The figures come from "Misconduct to Corruption," a lengthy report released in June and compiled by officials from 15 cities with assistance from the FBI.

Are You Ready for a Promotion?  

July 1, 1998

You've packed off a gazillion puking drunks, officiated at countless barroom brawls, gone through a truckload of ticket books and restored relative tranquility to more scenes of domestic mayhem then you'd care to number.  You're ready for a new challenge.

July 1, 1998

In a sense, by making the easy cases the officer became part of the problem instead of part of the solution. Usually such behavior is wasteful and a little bit noisome, but not particularly harmful. One kind of "making the easy case" is often very harmful. That occurs when the "easy case" is a dual-arrest in a case of domestic violence.

Genesis of a Sports Riot  

June 1, 1998

Any department, in any city in the United States, either has experienced or may experience a situation when otherwise law-abiding citizens become lawless, out-of-control fans. Such a circumstance, if not properly prepared for, can be a nightmare for local law enforcement.

Training for Real  

June 1, 1998

Recently, several deputies and I responded to a "man with a gun" call. Based on the rapidly escalating nature of the situation, we made an aggressive ap­proach to the location.
