October 1, 2006

Give or take a few weeks, Police Magazine was born 30 years ago this month as Police Product News. The magazine was the brainchild of Rodney A. Dornsife, its first editor and a San Diego cop.

30th Anniversary: Driving Memories  

October 1, 2006

May 1, 2005

On the patio outside the Long Beach Convention Center there was a clear reminder of what the conference/trade show inside was all about.
