Police Product Test: Nightstick NSR-9744XL and TAC-560XL Flashlights  

May 31, 2015

By A.J. George

Nightstick's NSR-9744XL wasn't as hefty as other full-size flashlights but it was just as handy and every bit as bright. On its highest setting the TAC-560XL blasts 800 lumens over 205 meters. That kind of power out of a light this small is rare.

Moving While Shooting  

May 31, 2015

By Michael T. Rayburn

A Really Bad Month  

May 30, 2015

By David Griffith

T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" begins with the words "April is the cruelest month…" I can't think of a more appropriate summation of what April 2015 was like for American law enforcement; it was an exceptionally "cruel" month.

Reviewing Reports  

May 30, 2015

By Amaury Murgado

Optimism is a sense of control in your life, the belief that you can control your destiny and your emotions, and that if you continue to strive you can create positive outcomes.

Kings of the Road  

May 24, 2015

By David Griffith

There are many things that an in-car video system can do that body cameras can't do or can't do nearly as well. Primarily, in-car video evidence capture was specifically designed for monitoring the activity in and around a vehicle—whether that vehicle is stopped or moving.

Motivating Officers to Stay Fit  

May 24, 2015

By Jeff Line

Negotiating with Suicidal Subjects  

May 24, 2015

By Arthur Slatkin

Suicide by cop, like other suicides, can be devastating for loved ones of the subject.
