Calling All MacGyvers  

November 1, 2002

By Scott Smith

With a pocket tool in his hand and a couple of strips of aluminum foil MacGyver could probably construct a nuclear power plant. You won't need to do that. But in the real world of law enforcement, these devices are handy streamlined versions of the essential items from your tool box.

Consent to Search  

November 1, 2002

By John A. Stephen

In a motor vehicle, it may not always be clear who has authority to grant permission for a search.

November 1, 2002

By Andre Belotto

Unfortunately, the big game hunter spends so much time waiting for the big arrest that lots of good and equally important enforcement duties are missed. And that could have dire consequences.

The conventional one-hand shooting method is to step toward the target and cant the gun inward.

One-Hand Engagement  

November 1, 2002

By Dave Spaulding

You don't like doing it, I don't like doing it…no one I know likes shooting with one hand. But quite often, how you shoot determines whether or not you go back to the street or end up in an office job riding a desk.

Survive Encounters with EDPs  

October 1, 2002

By Gerald W. Garner

Emotionally disturbed persons, or EDPs, present a major challenge to the law enforcement officer sent to deal with their sometimes bizarre and frequently unpredictable behavior.

Swimming the Witch  

October 1, 2002

By David Griffith

Police officers swept up in a high-profile case involving accusations of racism and excessive force probably sympathize with those poor swimming witches. Except their trial is not by water, it's by media.

October 1, 2002

By David Griffith

No department would dare let said officer hit the street without training and instruction in policies governing the use of a pistol. Many PDs even have policies regarding the use of flashlights.
