Drunk Driver Tells All  

August 1, 1998

The one-way conversation contin­ued until the tranquillity was broken by squealing tires and car horns. Doug looked in the rear view mirror and shouted, "Bill, wake up! We got a crazy coming up behind us, weaving in and out of traffic, forcing people off the road."

Police Corruption Should Concern Every Officer  

August 1, 1998

As of mid-June this year, there were 548 local, state and federal law enforce­ment officers in federal prisons alone ­up from 107 in 1994. An unknown num­ber of other ex-officers are in state lock­ups. The figures come from "Misconduct to Corruption," a lengthy report released in June and compiled by officials from 15 cities with assistance from the FBI.

Are You Ready for a Promotion?  

July 1, 1998

You've packed off a gazillion puking drunks, officiated at countless barroom brawls, gone through a truckload of ticket books and restored relative tranquility to more scenes of domestic mayhem then you'd care to number.  You're ready for a new challenge.

Training for Real  

June 1, 1998

Recently, several deputies and I responded to a "man with a gun" call. Based on the rapidly escalating nature of the situation, we made an aggressive ap­proach to the location. Angry that we'd frustrated his attempt to kill his girlfriend and family, the suspect turned his aggressions on us. Soon, we were the ones under fire.

 

Here's the Story on Cop-Media Relations  

May 1, 1998

We cops can be masters of circumlocution: If we can't dazzle them with brilliance- we'll baffle 'em with "b.s." Sometimes it seems that we can be notoriously inventive in just about everything, short of public relations. However, in doing so are we doing ourselves a disservice?

Time and a Half of What?  

April 1, 1998

Most police officers and police employers know that the federal Fair Labor Standards Act requires overtime pay at "time and one-half' for FLSA overtime hours worked. Less well known, however, are some of the FLSA rules governing how time and a half must be calculated. This has sometimes resulted in arithmetic mistakes which have deprived officers of wages to which they are entitled under the law.

Above and Beyond  

February 1, 1998

As one of the first operators, I can say that driving a Volvo 240 DL as a cruiser present­ed a very unique experience, which in­cluded the looks of amazement and dis­belief from motorists.
