Taming the Paper Trail

October 1, 2005

Quiz time! What is the size of a two-dollar pad of paper but contains the entire value of your police career inside of it? Answer: Your city and department personnel files.

Stay Ready

September 1, 2005

Be prepared for things to go south on every contact you make. You never know when you’ll need to take chase or pull your gun at a moment’s notice.

A Collision Course on Traffic Investigations

August 1, 2005

Like any other common task, accident investigations can become a bit routine for most patrol officers. Important details can be inadvertently missed as we try to finish up to get to the next call.

Digging Deeper

July 1, 2005

There is a saying in law enforcement, "We deal with 10 percent of the population 90 percent of the time." And whoever said it first had to be a patrol officer.

Report Writing Tune-Up

June 1, 2005

One of the most ignored aspects of our work is report writing. But it shouldn’t be. Whether we are patrol officers or investigators, we write reports each and every day. And these reports stay with us from the day we write them all the way through the court process and beyond.

Street Smarts

May 1, 2005

Officers can become too reliant on the new technology to do their job, and can easily forget that an officer’s job is still 90 percent common sense and know-how.

Be On the Lookout

October 1, 2004

Numerous high-tech gadgets are now being deployed by law enforcement to catch or stop car thieves.

Squeak, Rattle, and Beep

February 1, 2001

As any officer who has ever worked the midnight shift knows, sound travels and night. We all tend to laugh at suspects who give away their hidden positions by making some little noise, yet we are bigger culprits than they are when it comes to announcing our presence to the world.
