Trapped on an Escalator

May 8, 2012

Your "locus of control" is your sense of controlling your own future, your own happiness, your own life. Too often people blame the commander, the sergeant, the department, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a husband, a wife, or a partner, maybe even all eight of them for their unhappiness or unfilled dreams.

The Checklist

March 12, 2012

I was recently reading how more and more professions are turning to checklists to improve safety. I have been advocating just this kind of practice for law enforcement for decades.

Beer Run

January 26, 2012

"Caught on police dash cam. One lawnmower, 10 shopping carts, 100-foot extension cord, lots of beer, and one mad beer drinking redneck yelling, 'God Dang it I know my rights.'" Note: This video is likely a spoof.

The Rest Stop

January 13, 2012

I'd like to take a minute to ponder one of the issues that remains an unspoken truth about our natures and at the same time can dominate our attention with great urgency. That is the need for the human body to process waste.

Your Just Deserts

December 6, 2011

As a student of human performance I am always amazed at the way we pay lip service to the winning mindset. It seems we think that if we just say this or that to ourselves, or visualize ourselves doing this or that, we will become winners. Simple, right? Wrong.

November 29, 2011

Responding to a Code Z

November 14, 2011

A plethora of TV shows, movies, and novels explore all types of the undead or living dead. Future generations will no doubt attribute this fixation to one or another of our social ills, and one certainly has to admit that there must be some strange social collective fear that has made these critters the subject of so much attention.

Learn From the Replay

October 10, 2011

Feedback can come from the officer watching himself on a dashcam or a sergeant telling him he turns his back on a violator every time he keys his mic. This is a lot better than spitting teeth out in the back of an ambulance or worse.

Laugh Often

September 6, 2011
There are times where a good laugh will get you over a bad day or through a tough call. I would advise you to take the job seriously but don't take yourself seriously.

DVR Dreams

August 16, 2011

I had the strangest dream the other night. I was a detective on my way to a homicide and my partner was that big guy from "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" who knows everything about everything.

Stay Refreshed

June 9, 2011

When I took over firearms instruction in the academy the first thing I did was try to imbue everyone with the ideas that shooting was fun, anyone can do it, and if there is a problem it is only the technique, and not the person.

The Hole

May 4, 2011

Over the years I have had so many "if only" moments; most of them have been about debt and its related stresses. When I was developing officer safety programs at the academy, I was stunned to find the number one cause of divorce among law enforcement officers was not dispatchers, but financial stress.

My Inner Cro-Magnon
