Urban Shield Tests Police Responders

Twenty nine tactical teams, including three international, participated in Urban Shield 2010, the nation's largest first-responder training hosted by the Alameda County (Calif.) Sheriff's Office. Organizers roll out scenario-based exercises at a variety of venues that teams must respond to during a 48-hour period. With each exercise, the teams must manage and respond to an ongoing critical incident. The exercises "provide opportunities to enhance response efforts and identify training needs in a simulated environment," according to organizers. Photos courtesy of Alameda County Sheriff's Office.

How Cartels Smuggle Narcotics Into Arizona

Earlier this year, a regional SWAT team led by deputies with the Pinal County (Ariz.) Sheriff's Office took POLICE Magazine into the Vekol Valley in the Arizona desert to show one way smugglers bring narcotics across the U.S.-Mexico border. Smugglers often use illegal immigrants as drug mules to carry 25-pound marijuana bundles using makeshift "backpacks" of rope and cut strips of Mexican blankets to lessen discomfort. Listen to our podcast, "Tracking Smugglers in Southern Arizona," with Pinal County Sheriff's Sgt. Matt Thomas. Photos by Paul Clinton.

After stealing a BMW, suspect Daniel Brown asked a Peoria (Ariz.) PD  officer to help him move the disabled vehicle. The two men scuffled, and  Brown ran toward a gas station, where he stole a delivery truck. He then led a trio of law enforcement agencies on a pursuit that terminated at a Safeway grocery  store.

Shots Fired: Scottsdale, Ariz., Crime Scene Photos

Det. James Peters of Scottsdale (Ariz.) PD SWAT responded to a Safeway grocery on April 23, 2006, following a multi-agency pursuit of suspect Daniel Brown, who had scuffled with a patrol officer while attempting to steal a BMW. Brown then jacked a Krispy Kreme delivery truck and led officers to the Safeway, where he crashed through the front doors and then took a senior citizen hostage with a handgun. Peters ended the threat with two well-placed shots. Read the full story of this "Shots Fired." Photos courtesy of Scottsdale PD. Warning: Gallery contains a graphic image.

The TPV was built for urban or rural response due to its 116-inch  wheelbase (shorter than other ARVs for better maneuverability), a ground clearance of 13 inches, a width of 85 inches, and a  governed speed of almost 75 mph. It arrives with optional four-wheel drive.

Oshkosh Defense TPV

Oshkosh Defense's Tactical Protector Vehicle (TPV) looks ready for serious business. It's a large vehicle compared to a passenger SUV, but it's actually smaller than some other tactical rescue vehicles designed for the police market. Wisconsin-based Oshkosh Defense has been making armored rolling stock for the U.S. military since 1918. The Oshkosh Defense TPV—the company's first tactical response vehicle for law enforcement—benefits from its manufacturer's long history of making military vehicles. Read POLICE Magazine's "First Look" article on the TPV.

In addition to the piston drive upper, the SR-556 possesses a 16-inch, chrome-lined, hammer-forged barrel, a free-floating railed handguard, folding front and rear sights, and other high-end features and accessories. Ruger not only used components of top quality on this rifle, it obviously has done quite a bit of market research to understand what features savvy shooters desire and incorporated those into the SR-556's design.

Ruger's SR-556 Carbine

Ruger introduced its new SR-556 rifle at last year's National Rifle Association show in Phoenix. The announcement ended years of speculation that Ruger was indeed working on an AR-style rifle, and the SR-556 quickly became the buzz of the show. While the newest Ruger long gun possesses many typical AR features, it also has a Ruger-designed piston drive system. The patent-pending, chrome plated two-stage piston system provides a cleaner, cooler running, and more reliable operation than any standard AR gas impingement system can deliver. Read our full review of Ruger's SR-556.
