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

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

What the heck happened to us? Cro-Magnons were big, athletic, and healthy until they died (mostly young), and had bigger brains than we do.

Spring Forward, Fall Back

Dave Smith (J.D. 'Buck' Savage)

July 30, 2010

Veteran law enforcement trainer Dave Smith has always had a love of performing. So in 1980 he approached his commanders at the Arizona Department of Public Safety and asked them if he could make a series of funny training videos. His alter-ego J.D. "Buck" Savage was born. Buck is the most incompetent cop to ever wear an Arizona DPS uniform, and Dave Smith is one of the funniest. Today, Dave is retired and serving as the lead instructor for Calibre Press's "Street Survival" seminar series. In between his training sessions, Dave writes a back page column titled "In My Sights" for POLICE. Dave compiled some of his favorite columns into an "In My Sights" book. POLICE Editor David Griffith recently caught up with him by phone.
