Training for Real  

June 1, 1998

By Dean Scoville

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.

April 1, 1998

By Jeffrey Chamberlain

Most police officers and police employers know that the federal Fair Labor Standards Act requires overtime pay at "time and one-half' for FLSA overtime hours worked. Less well known, however, are some of the FLSA rules governing how time and a half must be calculated.
