Maintaining Success  

November 1, 2005

Police officers are tasked with being true “jacks of all trades.” One of the biggest drawbacks to this designation is the amount of gear and paperwork officers are required to carry out into the field with them. It’s like having your entire office in your car and on your belt! Maintaining these items is one of the most commonly overlooked, but most important, aspects of our job.

Residential Protective Sweeps  

November 1, 2005

Special Deliveries  

November 1, 2005

For generations law enforcement has been seeking the perfect round, the so-called “magic bullet.” The ideal police weapon is a munition that could be fired at a distance to temporarily incapacitate a suspect so that he or she could be taken into custody without injury to either the suspect or the arresting officer.

No Movie Like Real Life  

October 1, 2005

It's interesting the subliminal effect that movies can have on us. Especially us cops, who are the subjects of at least one or two movies a year. Some of you may remember the movie "48 Hours" starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy.

Stay Ready  

September 1, 2005

Be prepared for things to go south on every contact you make. You never know when you’ll need to take chase or pull your gun at a moment’s notice.

Investigative Traffic Stops  

September 1, 2005

Most traffic stops are routine. You see a moving or equipment violation, make the stop, and issue a citation or warning. Everything’s over in 10 minutes or so.

Hartford (Vt.) Police Department  

September 1, 2005

Slicing through the rolling hills and quiet villages of Vermont’s Upper Valley are the dual black-ribbon roadways of interstates 89 and 91.
