What Goes Around, Comes Around  

March 1, 2005

By Jim McDevitt

Back when I was working patrol for the New York Police Department, Sgt. Torre handed my partner and me a business index card to complete for a new bank on Queens Boulevard. It was a weekday, so we drove by the new bank when we turned out. The bank was small with two sets of revolving doors instead of the doors you push open.

How to Run an Assessment Center  

March 1, 2005

By Michael McLaurin

Deciding who should be hired to a high-ranking position at a law enforcement agency is a difficult job, no question.

Princeton Tec Surge and Impulse Specialty Lights  

February 1, 2005

By Scott Smith

Today, a lot of police work involves specialization. In large departments nationwide we have harbor/shore patrol units, water rescue, high-country search and rescue teams, SWAT units, K-9 units, and the list goes on and on. That’s why many officers are looking beyond traditional patrol flashlights and at “specialty” lights designed for hikers, climbers, hunters, and divers.

Controlling Lawsuit Risks  

February 1, 2005

By Devallis Rutledge

Some law enforcement activities are more likely than others to generate citizen complaints, tort claims, and lawsuits (use of deadly or serious force, for example). But even routine detentions, searches, and arrests also present civil liability risks. What can you do to reduce the chances of becoming a defendant in a lawsuit?

No Hacksaws, No Dynamite, No Problem  

February 1, 2005

By Commander Gilmore

While police scampered around the countryside looking for their lost convicts, investigators at the scene were concluding that the "explosive" that blew out the iron bars of a window and collapsed the adjacent wall wasn't an explosive at all, but rather a corrosive agent: human urine.
