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. You will encounter, civilians legally carrying concealed firearms more often today than ever before. How you should respond is largely determined by the behavior of the civilian and the laws in your state.

New York Experiences Hook Officer on Big Apple  

May 1, 1996

New York City is full of diverse people and events, but I have never seen it as I did seven years ago. I had recently graduated from the academy and was assigned to a field training unit in midtown Manhattan. Of the 10 months that I spent in that training unit, there are three memories that stand out.

Playing it Safe With Vehicle Positioning  

May 1, 1996

The lead story was the same on nine local television stations, four national networks and CNN: While conducting a "routine" vehicle stop, an officer was critically wounded and the suspects unknown. The five-year law enforcement veteran left behind two sons and a wife who was expecting their third child. We have all heard it and seen it, but are we learning from it?

Staying Alive  

April 1, 1996

In spite of all that is known about officer deaths — despite what officers have been taught in the academy and in-service training — all too often good cops are still killed because they forgot, they took a shortcut, they took an unnecessary chance or they were just plain lazy.

No Nonsense Negotiations  

April 1, 1996

With improved communications systems, alarm systems and faster response times, first responders now have the advantage of arriving in the early stages — before things get out of control.

Breaking the Silence with Deaf Citizens  

April 1, 1996

You've made a traffic stop and the suspect does not respond to your verbal commands. He moves his index finger from his ear to his mouth. Then he begins to reach for the glove compartment. Many veteran patrol officers say they've had to forcefully arrest or almost tire their weapon under similar circumstances-only to discover the subject they thought was being aggressive or uncooperative was deaf or hearing impaired.
