Ode to the Belt  

March 21, 2014

By Dave Smith

The cow skidded down the far emergency lane, and my vehicle creaked and scraped down the other. I slammed on the now stiff brakes and my Chevy ground loudly to a stop, steaming and groaning while I waited for the impact of some approaching vehicle.

Vehicle Ambush Training  

March 20, 2014

By Amaury Murgado

My agency recently presented an in-service training program on how to handle vehicle ambushes. We tackled the issue by focusing on the only three possible options available when attacked in your vehicle: retreat, run the suspect over, or get out and fight.

March 14, 2014

By David Griffith

The StarChase system uses a patrol car-mounted launcher to shoot a GPS tracking device at a fleeing vehicle. Officers can catch up to the vehicle later without speeding after it.

The Dangers of Distracted Driving  

May 22, 2013

By Mark D. Reese

We have statutes in many states against distracted driving, including texting while driving, talking on a cell phone, and other technological multi-tasking. So given the prevalence of in-car computers in patrol cars and how they are often used by an officer who is driving, we have to ask if the rules governing distracted driving apply to police officers as well as the public.

Adding Alley Lights to Police Cruisers  

March 20, 2013

By Tom Wetzel
