In-Car Computers

October 1, 2006

Time was that the only computer in a patrol car was the Casio calculator inside the duty bag of the driver. Now just a decade later, computers are so common in patrol cars that some have more than one.

30 Years and Still Going Strong

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. And like many small magazine startups it was a family project. Rod’s brother Chad was the advertising director, and according to Chad their father worked distribution.

Class Time

October 1, 2006
The conference portion of TREXPO East 2006 offered a little something for everyone interested in tactical and patrol operations.

The Harbinger

September 1, 2006

When Russian Special Forces units stormed the terrorist held school in Beslan on Sept. 3, 2004, John Giduck was landing in Moscow with his Archangel team of tactical consultants. Police Magazine editor David Griffith caught up with Giduck by phone as he was preparing to hit the road again, moving from agency to agency warning American cops that Beslan-type school sieges are coming to America.

Get Real, America

September 1, 2006

I have a lot of concerns about our now five-year-old war on terror. But the biggest is that we can't even come out and say who we're fighting. Many people don't take this war seriously because our leadership has not had the guts to come out and say who we're fighting.

Good Riddance

August 1, 2006

By the most conservative estimates, there are more than 12 million illegal aliens in this country. All but the most liberal Americans and those who own large industries that benefit from illegal alien labor at ridiculously low wages believe that this is a real problem.

Defined Benefit

July 1, 2006

A strong and generous pension is the least society can do for your years of service.

The Evangelist

June 1, 2006
Dave Grossman is a man on a mission. By all rights, the retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and Ranger should be enjoying a life of leisure. Instead, Grossman spends most of his life on the road, traveling from town to town like a tent evangelist teaching law enforcement officers and military personnel about the psychological and physiological effects of combat and preaching a contemporary version of the warrior code.

The Crusader

June 1, 2006

Educating America about the effects of violent entertainment on children is Lt. Col. Dave Grossman’s second mission.

Eyes Wide Shut

June 1, 2006

Many Americans have failed to learn the real message of that day. We were not attacked by a small band of zealots with box cutters but an ideology that still thrives in the world and must be defeated before there can be peace.

TREXPO West: Best of Show

May 1, 2006

Yes, the age of the tactical robot has truly arrived. So it's little wonder that robots were some of the stars of the show floor at the recent TREXPO West trade show in Los Angeles.

TREXPO West: School Days

May 1, 2006

It’s easy to think of TREXPO as primarily a trade show. After all, some of the most interesting news to come out of each TREXPO usually involves some intriguing weapon or training aid. But the training and instruction that officers receive during the conference program at TREXPO can pay real dividends in the field. TREXPO West 2006 at the Los Angeles Convention Center was no exception.

Name Dropping

May 1, 2006

If you are reading this column, odds are that you are a police officer or deputy sheriff who has at one time in your career worked traffic. That means that you have likely come up against people who invoked special privilege when you tried to write them a ticket.

TREXPO West 2006: War Stories

May 1, 2006

It would have been difficult to find two TREXPO West keynote speakers who complemented each other in their message better than Kelly McCann and Col. Danny McKnight.

Patrol Cars: Class of 2006

May 1, 2006

Yes, I've seen a lot of police cars over the years, but I don't think I've ever seen a better-looking crop of patrol cars than the class of 2006. Each one of these cars has great lines. They look both modern and a bit retro. And they have plenty of engine to get the job done.

Of Man and Superman

April 1, 2006

You probably heard about this. It went through the law enforcement community like wildfire, especially in the Northeast. A N.Y. state senator recently started promoting a bill that if it had passed would have required cops to avoid killing suspects in shootouts.

Video Violence

March 1, 2006

Back in college my favorite arcade game was Pole Position. And I can honestly say that this Grand Prix racing video game affected the way I drove in real life.

SHOT Show 2006: Report from the Show Floor

March 1, 2006

You probably think you have seen every possible rifle that can be derived from the basic AR platform. Think again.

Foreign Correspondence

February 1, 2006

Statistics from countries that have tried it reveal that gun control is no answer for violent crime.

Law Enforcement Handguns 2006

February 1, 2006

A good law enforcement handgun does not have to be new and exciting to remain viable in the market. A good duty or off-duty sidearm is not a fashion statement; it's a tool.
