Jumping into the Fire  

October 1, 2002

At Columbine, the officers, deputies, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel did an incredible job in their response to an unbelievably bad situation. But through no fault of their own, the tactics they were trained to use were not suited to the nature of the incident.

Original SWAT’s 9-inch leather side-zip boot is made to last through any kind of weather, keeping your feet dry and comfortable.

The Fifth Element  

August 1, 2002

Welcome to the new battleground. Called "fifth-dimensional battlespace," it takes the old three-dimensional battlefield (the spatial dimensions of length, width, height or depth of an area), and the temporal dimension of time, and adds the fifth dimension of cyberspace.

Police waterborne training includes swimmer casts from high-speed boats. Tactical officers say observers from the shore are much more likely to notice a stationary boat than one that rips by and leaves swimmers in the water. This gives a surveillance or assault team the element of surprise.

TWO if by Sea: Tactical Waterborne Units  

August 1, 2002
