Fit for Duty?  

November 7, 2007

Picture this: the pursuit ends with the suspect bailing out and running. You and your fellow officers set your perimeter and give chase. The bad guy gets away, and you and your buddies return to the cars to swap excuses about how you could have caught this guy "back in the day." Sound familiar?

Tricks and Treats

Duct Tape Guy
Dispensing with the fig leaves, this robber stuck with duct tape—enveloping himself with it before pulling off a robbery. Unfortunately, he was so wrapped up in the stuff that he neglected to refrain from leaving incriminating fingerprints on discarded pieces of the tape.

Surfing the Criminal Mind  

October 25, 2007

When asked why he read Cosmo, a man I respected explained that you had to know what the enemy was thinking. The following Websites may not have obvious appeal for the street cop, but you ignore them at your own peril.

De-Ass Yourself!  

October 12, 2007
There will always be those whose personal missions are not to provide support, but domination and personal aggrandizement. They are easily recognized, and their true stripes become the subject of many a windshield conference and informal briefing. They may believe their self-authored press releases, but few others do.

October 5, 2007

The song asserts that "your enemies won't do you no harm, because you know where they're coming from." But it's getting them identified and on radar in the first place that's the problem, and first impressions at least as they relate to smiling faces and our profession can be an iffy proposition, at best.

Don’t Keep Your Fellow Officers in the Dark  

September 28, 2007

Consider, for example, surveillance operations that do not run 24/7, where suspects are occasionally at liberty to be detained by patrol officers who may not know what they're in for once they pull such suspects over, or otherwise detain them. At these times it’s best to share the info.

Testing for Sergeant  

September 19, 2007

While I can't do anything to help you pass the time during the waiting process, I can give you some tips on how to maximize your testing experience.

Take Time to Educate the Educators  

September 19, 2007

As any cop who works day shift will attest, teachers are often the front line in identifying problems. Tagging, dope dealing, and gang activities are often identified by vigilant teachers. But vigilance is only half the battle. What the teachers do with the information they acquire is just as important. As such, teachers sometimes make well-intended mistakes.

Your Database Is As Good as the Information Put Into It  

September 12, 2007
When Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Carlos Borland pulled over a Chevrolet Blazer on I-80 in response to a call that originated from a nearby truck stop, he did so without the knowledge that the vehicle's driver was an escapee from a North Carolina prison and that he had allegedly murdered two people the previous week. The Blazer was itself reported stolen and bearing license plates stolen from yet another vehicle.

Don't Be a Bully with a Badge  Law Enforcement Only

August 31, 2007

I understand full well the temptation to administer a little street justice. But while you may be able to rationalize Avenging Angels actions to yourself, you'll have a devil of a time defending it in court.
