The Fourth Estate and Law Enforcement's Eighth Deadly Sin  

October 10, 2013
One would have thought that the news media—for all its protestations of harms incurred at the hands of police—might have adopted some form of its own Hippocratic oath by now. That it would swear to avoid putting cops and citizens in danger.

Video: Justified Deadly Force In D.C.  

October 8, 2013
Law enforcement's use of deadly force at the end of the U.S. Capitol pursuit may not satisfy the mainstream media or other second guessers, but it was the proper response to a lethal situation.

Is Your Boss a Weiner or a Winner?  

September 26, 2013
If the men and women of patrol have to be exposed to a cross-section of varied subjects, then law enforcement administrators are expected to have doctorates in each of those and be able to answer for and explain the seemingly inexplicable actions of each of their subordinates.

How to Survive Being Shot  

September 17, 2013
By understanding three basic steps—Breathe, STOT, Move—officers are able to maintain control over their physiological responses and employ more effective psychological responses to stressful incidents.

Hope and Change? How About Live and Learn?  

September 11, 2013
The wife says that there is usually justification to my umbrage—it's my bail schedule that sucks. And so mine has been a history of strained associations, parted companies, and dissolved friendships.

What I Learned From 25 Years of Police Work  

September 6, 2013
While training a recruit, I passed on some of the most important lessons that sustained me through my career and kept me motivated to cross the finish line to retirement. I'd like to continue to pass along these lessons so other officers can benefit from what I've learned.

Restoring the Dream  

September 5, 2013
When Dr. Martin Luther King gave his "I have a dream" speech in Washington, D.C., black Americans were particularly suspicious of police officers and with good reason. Fifty years later, I suspect that many are now just as suspicious of us. That's a failure within the law enforcement community that demands a remedy.

To Stop, or Not to Stop, That is the Question  

August 28, 2013
The cop is the decision maker. Not Jesse Jackson. Not Al Sharpton. Not even the Supreme Court. All that stuff can be argued about later, and might well be.

LAPD Resources Drained by Prisoner Realignment  

August 22, 2013
When Los Angeles residents need a police officer, they expect and deserve an immediate response. But it is getting harder to deliver on that expectation because LAPD officers are being pulled away from what they were hired to do in order to keep tabs on thousands of felons living in the city after their early release from prison.

In Praise of Condition Yellow  

August 9, 2013
Being in Condition Yellow has allowed me to identify a thief before he acted on his intentions, a would-be assailant before he launched his attack. It has given me pause to re-evaluate the decision to pet a dog, or patronize certain establishments.
