Proper Policing in the Land of Armed Civilians  

June 1, 1996

With 42 states now allowing civil­ians to carry concealed firearms, there is a good chance this man is acting within the law. You will encounter, civilians legally carrying concealed firearms more often today than ever before. How you should respond is largely determined by the behavior of the civilian and the laws in your state.

Careful Planning is Key to a Sound Investigation  

June 1, 1996

Getting the case to court and obtaining a favorable decision by the bench or jury is always the goal in a gang investigation. And one of the greatest assets to any case is, of course, the witnesses. How do you solicit cooperation and a commitment to testify in court from these unique wit­nesses?

New York Experiences Hook Officer on Big Apple  

May 1, 1996

New York City is full of diverse people and events, but I have never seen it as I did seven years ago. I had recently graduated from the academy and was assigned to a field training unit in midtown Manhattan. Of the 10 months that I spent in that training unit, there are three memories that stand out.

Playing it Safe With Vehicle Positioning  

May 1, 1996

The lead story was the same on nine local television stations, four national networks and CNN: While conducting a "routine" vehicle stop, an officer was critically wounded and the suspects unknown. The five-year law enforcement veteran left behind two sons and a wife who was expecting their third child. We have all heard it and seen it, but are we learning from it?

April 1, 1996

Breaking the Silence with Deaf Citizens  

April 1, 1996

You've made a traffic stop and the suspect does not respond to your verbal commands. He moves his index finger from his ear to his mouth. Then he begins to reach for the glove compartment. Many veteran patrol officers say they've had to forcefully arrest or almost tire their weapon under similar circumstances-only to discover the subject they thought was being aggressive or uncooperative was deaf or hearing impaired.

A Life-Threatening Meeting With Some Old "Friends"  

April 1, 1996

It was May 2, 1995, and my first night work­ing the graveyard shift with the Harvey (III.) Police Department. Harvey is a large suburb about 10 miles south of Chicago. I had already responded to several calls, including a high speed pursuit that started in Chicago with the Illinois State Police chasing a stolen vehicle. Nothing could have prepared me for my next call.
