Layoffs and Reality  

August 10, 2010
Follow what's going on with your employer. Maybe you don't live in the municipality, so you haven't been paying attention. Start paying attention, when the words "budget shortfalls" and "layoffs" come over the news, sit up and pay attention. You may be forced to make some tough decisions.

Little Things To Make Patrol Life Easier  

August 2, 2010
Experience is probably the best teacher in the category of little things that can be a pain in the day at work. The academy instructors maybe mentioned a few and you should have observed your Field Training Officer (FTO), but some things just seem to slip by.

Mall Ninjas  

July 28, 2010
The Mall Ninja will seek the attention of the unwary public. They obtain weird, black T-shirts that have FBI, DEA, Narcotics and SWAT on the back. Then they parade around in the public with them on for all to gaze upon. They are not cops; they are wanna-bes or pseudo cops.

Learn as much as you can from veteran officers and their experiences - both good and bad - about why we now do what we do.

BOOK REVIEW, If I Knew Then: Life Lessons From Cops on the Street  

June 24, 2010
This book differs from similar collective works in the sheer passion of the writers. For once, they are allowed to write from their inner warrior's soul. You will sense a certain energy from the contributors that you do not normally sense in this genre of writing.

Ink and Internet Indiscretions  

June 17, 2010
Posting party photos online and getting tattoos is OK for most people, but police agencies will expect you to be more careful of the image you project.

LAPD Hollywood's Vice Unit  

June 11, 2010
The movie industry has helped make Hollywood a much more seductive idea than physical destination and, more recently, has exposed the underbelly as well. Hollywood's streets often become "tracks" for street prostitutes, and boisterous nightclubs shun operating rules.
