How the Threat of Terrorism has Changed Since 9/11  

September 14, 2018
Now that law enforcement — particularly the FBI — has placed such an emphasis on investigating and thwarting attacks, a complex and costly plan like the one used on 9/11 would come to the attention of some three-letter agency, and the attackers arrested or killed (depending upon where we found them). Consequently, the tactics of the major terrorist organizations have changed.

Why "Safe Injection Sites" are the Wrong Answer to the Opioid Question  

September 7, 2018
Drug addicts need treatment, not assistance in furthering their addiction. The government and the private sector should be helping addicts shake their addiction — not giving them a "safe place" to continue destroying themselves.

Telling the Stories of American Police Officers' Courage and Compassion  

August 31, 2018
When the Fort Worth (TX) Police Department proactively invited their local media to a press conference to show the dash- and body-worn camera footage of a recent incident in which two officers rescued a suicidal woman who was standing precariously atop the safety barrier on a very high highway bridge — and allow their officers to answer questions and talk about their experiences on that day — I was very pleased indeed.

A Brief Review of the Flaws in California's AB 931 UOF Legislation  

August 24, 2018
Assembly Bill 931 — otherwise known as the Police Accountability and Community Protection Act — is fatally flawed in its current form. Unpacking all of the problems with this piece of legislation is a monumentally difficult task, but I'll give it a shot — no pun intended.

A Plague of Deadly Hesitation, De-Motivation, and De-Policing in America  

August 17, 2018
Police in a variety of places have talked about trepidation to act when action is the only reasonable response. They have spoken about fearing the aftermath of a deadly force encounter more than they do the incident itself. However, we need to be redoubling our efforts to re-establish proactive policing and aggressive crime fighting.

Cleanup on Aisle Four: Policing in America Today  

August 16, 2018
Hopefully, as people appreciate and understand what their public servants do for them on a 24/7 basis, more of them will appreciate police officers for what most of them are — good people who want to help others.

5 Considerations for Off-Duty Safety in the Era of Anonymous, Antifa, and BLM  

August 10, 2018
Earlier this week, it was reported that Black Lives Matter protesters "crashed" the wedding of one of the two Sacramento police officers reportedly involved in the fatal shooting of Stephon Clark.

Why the "Lip-Sync Challenge" Videos Have Value for Law Enforcement  

August 7, 2018
There have been dozens — if not hundreds — of videos posted of individual officers and whole departments dancing and lip-syncing to popular music. Here's why they are a good thing for police.

The Homeless Crisis: Why Service Providers Should Partner with Police  

July 27, 2018
We cannot fix the problem of homelessness through enforcement actions alone. Police are the people being called to deal with the issue at a street level, but they are not the people who have the capabilities to address the root causes of chronic homelessness — the two most common being mental health issues and substance abuse.
