'Terror at Beslan' Author's Chilling Keynote Inspires TREXPO Crowd to Combat School Terrorism  

April 1, 2008

Tactical consultant John Giduck used a lot of humor in his six-hour two-day keynote presentation at TREXPO West. And that's a good thing because Giduck's presentation is about Islamist terror attacks on children, especially school children. So if his audience of veteran cops and soldiers didn't have some comic relief, they'd probably start crying.

Graffiti  

March 1, 2008

In a Broken Windows crime model, graffiti is one of those foothold crimes that leads to a neighborhood's decay.

Anti-Terrorism Intel for the Patrol Officer  

February 1, 2008

"This war has the potential to last beyond our children's lifetimes and to be fought mostly on U.S. soil." —Michael Scheuer, "Imperial Hubris"

Drive-by Shootings  

December 1, 2007

Members of street gangs and drug dealers are unlikely to redress their grievances through the criminal justice system. If their territory is invaded or if they are victims of drive-by shootings, they are much more likely to seek retribution with drive-by shootings of their own.

Have We Forgotten the Lessons of 9/11?  

October 1, 2007

Baaah! Baaah! That's the sound of me once again becoming a sheep. I thought I had shed my wool back around 7:30 a.m. PST on Sept. 11, 2001, when I watched a second airliner slam into the World Trade Center.

School Vandalism  

October 1, 2007

While such acts are rarely reported in the media, one in three schools has reported acts of vandalism each year. In 1990 more than $600 million in damage to school property was caused by vandals. By understanding the nuances of vandalistic acts, patrol officers can develop specialized responses to help minimize future attacks.

Obstruction of Justice  

August 1, 2007
Witnesses have been intimidated by the bad guys since Cain slew Abel. But today, even victims are expected to keep their mouths shut or quite literally be branded a snitch by their neighbors.

How to Develop Informants  

August 1, 2007

Some cops could use a hug. Others could use a Huggy Bear. Like Starsky and Hutch's trusty tattletale, reliable informants provide us with a worm's eye view of their sordid social circles, a heads up on threats to officer safety, and the groundwork for search warrants. They hang in circles we wouldn't want to enter. There is no question that the access they have and the intelligence they acquire is often invaluable to law enforcement.

Tactical Search Techniques  

August 1, 2007
The officer learns that this person observed two males dressed in dark clothing in his neighbor's backyard and then heard the sound of breaking glass. The neighbors are out of town on vacation. The officer's pulse quickens as he calls for an additional officer to search the location.

Investigating Gangs Outside the Gang Squad  

July 1, 2007

I remember riding with another L.A. Deputy Sheriff in an East Los Angeles gang car in 1975. To me, it was a privilege working with a special gang suppression unit, but my partner complained that he hated working gangs because it was useless. But he was wrong.
