What Dreams May Come  

April 7, 2017

By Dave Smith

Worrying enhances the anxiety associated with our dreams, and most experts say dreams are the "subconscious mind" resolving anxieties. No cop ever said they didn't think about confronting life and death situations; anxiety is a healthy result of those thoughts.

By David "Lou" Ferland

We plan, we train, we try to anticipate as many probabilities as we can think of, except we often forget the dog's involvement in a police call. Here are some tips for what to do so you won't find yourself in the way when working with a K-9 on scene.

Motors on a Mission  

April 7, 2017

By Melanie Basich

The motor unit within the Special Events branch of the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department doesn't often spend its time handing out traffic citations. The officers are too busy with other duties specific to the nation's capital.

Police Product Test: Tru-Spec Urban Force TRU Apparel  

March 14, 2017

By A.J. George

The whole idea behind Tru-Spec's Urban Force TRU (Tactical Response Uniform) line is to retain all of the militaristic features that make the clothing fully functional for law enforcement use, yet make the appearance more clean and professional and less G.I. Joe.

By Dave Smith

Departments hoping to reach out to "alienated communities" are implementing training designed to: make us feel bad about who we are; encourage us to try to diagnose the "root cause" of a miscreant's bad behavior; and tempt us to hesitate to do our job for fear of prosecution or punishment. This is a recipe for disaster where officer safety is concerned.
