Shootin' the Bull Can Be More Than Idle Chit Chat  

October 1, 1996

When looking at the man's driver's license, I noticed the bull was inch­ing back toward the freeway. I told the driver I would be right back and slipped across the lanes to drive the bull back into the lot, hoping to prevent more paperwork should the next driver fail to yield him the right-of-way.

Rail Accident Sites Offer Serious Safety Hazards  

September 1, 1996

Our profession as police officers places us in that special category of first respon­ders. We often respond to accident scenes where community members have, through stupidity or misfortune, tangled with trains or trolley systems. In all cases, the train wins.

Policing the Untamed Streets of Hollywood  

September 1, 1996

Dealing with the unexpected and unusual are two reasons I became a police officer. If I had wanted a dull job, I would have become an accoun­tant. Yet there are just some things even a 13-year veteran of the LAPD is not ready for.

Gaining the Upper Hand on Combative Subjects  

September 1, 1996

Great strides have been made in police technology over the last 25 years. Advances are evident in almost every area of police work from the collection of evidence to the use of computers in squad cars. But when it comes to training, one law enforce­ment team has drawn from the past to develop a method for controlling vio­lent subjects.

Prevent Confrontations Using Mind Over Muscle  

August 1, 1996

While police recruits and offi­cers spend many hours of training learning physical methods of arrest, little (if any) time is spent discussing how an officer's actions may affect a subject's behav­ior and thought processes. Aware­ness of officer/sub­ject reaction can be thought of as "tactical psycholo­gy." and it is a valuable tool to include in your overall officer safety profile.

Learning the Finer Points of Attack Response  

August 1, 1996

John P. Kary's training program, part of American Combatives Inc., differs from more traditional instruction in that its focus is offensive rather than defen­sive. This offensive approach prevents a grap­pling situation over a weapon and instead diverts the attacker's attention to his own survival.

Combative Subjects Require Special Care  

July 1, 1996

Responding to calls involving violent, incoherent or uncontrollable subjects is never easy.  Unlike rational individuals who can be taken into custody with little more than a show of authority, irrational subjects are extremely unpredictable.

Cops' Kind Gestures Win Civilian's Admiration  

July 1, 1996

The Orlando PD is fortunate to have such a conscientious field training offi­cer, whose sincerity and attentiveness will go a long way to mold new recruits into officers who know what it means to serve the community. It's a small gesture with big returns.

 

Rail Accident Sites Offer Serious Safety Hazards  

June 1, 1996

On Sept. 28, 1989, a fire truck from the Catlett, Calif., Fire Department was struck by an Amtrak passenger train as the truck crossed a rural railroad right-of-way while responding to a vehicle fire. The truck was totally destroyed, and two firefighters aboard were killed.

Proper Policing in the Land of Armed Civilians  

June 1, 1996

With 42 states now allowing civil­ians to carry concealed firearms, there is a good chance this man is acting within the law.
