October 1, 2007

By David Griffith

In the past six years, I've attended 12 TREXPO conferences. Each time the exposition floor at the conference has had a unique character.

TREXPO East 2007: Hitting the Books and Each Other  

October 1, 2007

By David Griffith

The conference portion of the 2007 TREXPO East offered a little bit of something for every attendee. Once primarily SWAT oriented, the TREXPO conference now includes classes of interest to tactical medics, SWAT operators, patrol officers, and gang officers.

Taking the Bite  

October 1, 2007

By Dave Smith

I would later reflect on the odd incongruity of the K-9's toenails gently striking the tiles in the Junior High that we had just cleared. They were so dainty, almost tentative, as he rounded the corner into the shadows of the dead-end hallway where I hid silently in darkness. After that, he was a blur of snarling teeth and crushing power gripping my extended right arm.

Car Bombings

By Craig Gundy and Howard Linett

Kimber JPX OC Pistol  

September 1, 2007

By Scott Smith

One of the most unique pieces of law enforcement gear that I have seen in recent years is the Kimber JPX OC pistol. The JPX fires a blast of OC at 270 mph. This allows for precise placement of the irritant and very little if any blow back on the officer.

August 1, 2007

By Mike Detty

When John Matthews developed the first SureFire flashlight, he realized that for officers to get the most benefit out of the light, they would need special training. So Matthews, now president and CEO of SureFire, created the SureFire Institute, one of the nation's premier low-light combat training academies.

R Block of the West Virginia State Penitentiary at Moundsville. Inmates are holding a hostage. His hands are bound with a strip of cloth that's tied around the crossbars of one of the cells.
