Brothers in Arms

July 1, 2007
Now, like most of the public, I had been led to believe that firefighters and cops hold each other in contempt. But I remember very vividly attending a firefighter's funeral.

Where Do We Get Such Men?

You may not recognize the names of Yevgeniy "Eugene" Marshalik, 19, and Nicholas Todd Pekearo, 28. But you should. These young men are true heroes who upheld the greatest traditions of the New York Police Department, and they weren't even "real cops."

A New Look, A New Year

The more observant of you may notice that this issue of POLICE looks a little different. In the magazine industry, this is called a redesign, and we’re really jazzed about our new look. Now, I know that some of you out there may be thinking, “Why’d they change it? I liked it just the way it was.”

2007 Chevy Tahoe PPV

January 1, 2007

It was my fault. I entered the hairpin curve way too fast, and the SUV I was driving went into a spin.
