Go Beyond the Lens with Data-Driven Investigations  

February 6, 2017

Former NYPD Lieutenant Commander of Detectives, Tom Joyce, shares how license plate recognition (LPR) data becomes vehicle location intelligence to investigate and solve crimes. At its best, LPR combines analytics, predictive intelligence and real-time alerts to power investigations.

Hound Labs: Sniffing Out Marijuana

The Hound is completely different in that it measures the amount of THC in a person's breath – which stays there for only a matter of hours at most. It measures blood alcohol content through breath as well.

Police Product Test: Tru-Spec Urban Force TRU Apparel  

March 14, 2017

By A.J. George

The whole idea behind Tru-Spec's Urban Force TRU (Tactical Response Uniform) line is to retain all of the militaristic features that make the clothing fully functional for law enforcement use, yet make the appearance more clean and professional and less G.I. Joe.

By Dave Smith

Departments hoping to reach out to "alienated communities" are implementing training designed to: make us feel bad about who we are; encourage us to try to diagnose the "root cause" of a miscreant's bad behavior; and tempt us to hesitate to do our job for fear of prosecution or punishment. This is a recipe for disaster where officer safety is concerned.

March 10, 2017

By David Griffith
