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. Stretching from the Canadian border into New Hampshire and Connecticut, respectively, the robust thoroughfares form the backbone for travel in western New England.

Finding Your Shooting Stance  

August 1, 2005

Over the years different stances, or shooting platforms, have come and gone with various names attached to them.

Tucson (Ariz.) PD's SWAT Team  

August 1, 2005

Sgt. Robert Allen, weighed down in 50 pounds of tactical ballistic assault gear, has a reporter in his office, a lieutenant standing in the doorway, a ringing cell phone in one hand, and a three-wire mic at his left ear, listening to the Tucson Police Department SWAT team prepare for deployment.

SWAT Snipers  

August 1, 2005

For as long as most active SWAT operators have been police officers, there has been one gospel truth about SWAT sniper operations: the 70-Yard Rule. Ask any SWAT sniper what is the average range of a police sniper shooting, and he will answer, “About 70 yards.” Ask him the source of his data, and he will say, “FBI statistics.”

All holsters are not created equal. You know that. You also know that different types of holsters are designed to be used for different police applications. But what you may not know is how to evaluate holsters for quality, fit, retention, and general function.

Cops vs. Cars  

June 1, 2005

At presstime many things had still not been publicly released regarding the Devin Brown incident. LAPD detectives, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, and the FBI were all investigating the shooting. So it’s not known where Garcia was standing when he discharged 10 rounds into the Camry. And it’s not known if his use of deadly force was justified.

Recruiting Replacements  

June 1, 2005

Law enforcement agencies throughout the country are facing a major challenge in the recruitment of qualified peace officers. The baby boomer generation—many of them hired after service in Vietnam—is in the midst of retirement planning.
