Firing Practice Helps Make Survival Possible  

August 1, 2000

By Res. Sgt. R.K. Campbell

Personal investigation indicates that only about 25 percent of officers practice on their own time.  Supervisors, concerned by a low hit rate in critical incidents, may push for better handguns and advanced training.  But officers are responsible for their own safety and should practice on their own.

Doing ‘Whatever it Takes’ To Survive Confrontations  

August 1, 2000

By Capts. Larkin Fourkiller and Michael Holsapple

Consider that since 1994, more than 280,000 law enforcement officers have been assaulted or injured and more than 840 killed in the line of duty.  We should ask one another whether some of these deaths and injuries could have been prevented.  Are police officers really trained in the best methods to survive "street fight" encounters?

July 1, 2000

By Deputy Mitchell Mana

 "One hundred dollars for a tune-up?!!!" 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."

By Steve Leon

Surviving Your Off-Duty Hours  

July 1, 2000
