Extra Sensory Policing   

December 12, 2008
Call it a hunch, precognition, ESP, or intuition, most cops have experienced it: That feeling that something isn’t right. That sensation that something bad is going to happen. For some, the impression proves prophetic.

Calling the Chase  

December 5, 2008

Whenever we hear a well-called pursuit, we are in awe of it. We know that it's a damn difficult thing to accomplish.

"I Don't Like, Trust, or Respect You (But I Can Work with You)"  

November 26, 2008

At that moment, there was no shortage of things I could be taken to task for: insubordination, failure to document an off-duty incident, conduct unbecoming an officer, late for work, drama queen. It was then that I realized the man was really putting his ass on the line for me.

Call for Civilian Backup   

November 7, 2008

Picking Your Stops (and Keeping Them Stopped)  

October 10, 2008

Some cops are in such a rush to get a car stopped that they'll let the driver they're attempting to detain dictate where the traffic stop will take place. Worse, they'll allow suspects to choreograph what happens once the cars have stopped.

Electrocution Hazard  

September 26, 2008

One officer died after jumping into electrically charged water in response to cries for help from a man he thought was drowning. In trying to save the man’s life, he shared his fate.

Expensive Mistakes  

September 12, 2008

Short-cutting logistics, precipitous actions, inconsistent reportage, shaky testimonies, poor evidence gathering, and lack of control. These problems and others ultimately dovetailed into an at least $24-million settlement (including attorneys’ fees) against Los Angeles County.
