Trolling for Predators

By Kelly Kyrik

Luckily, there is a new breed of law enforcement officials who are tracking what the NCMEC now calls “Computer Facilitated Crimes Against Children,” and these officers can be found online all over the country, ferreting out pedophiles on their own turf: the chat room.

TREXPO East 2005: A Training Buffet  

Conference attendance was up significantly at this year’s TREXPO East, held Aug. 29 through Aug. 31 in Chantilly, Va. And with good reason. The conference program offered an excellent balance of hands-on defensive tactics training, anti-terrorism classes, and patrol and SWAT tactics courses.

TREXPO East 2005: Best of Show  

At each TREXPO trade show, the staff of Police fans out into the aisles in search of the most innovative police products on display at the show. Some shows are better than others.

How to Care for Your K-9  

The excitement of working with a K-9 partner can sometimes overshadow the amount of care and upkeep these animals need. Of course, just like people they need to maintain overall health to excel in the field.

TREXPO East 2005: Words of Wisdom and Warning  

This year's TREXPO East, held Aug. 29 through Sept. 1 in Chantilly, Va., was an unusual kind of law enforcement trade show. It actually had star power. It had Sgt. Major Billy Waugh of the U.S. Army Special Forces.

Working with Dogs  

Whether chasing a fleeing suspect or searching for a missing person, the K-9 handler and his assisting officers have a lot of influence on the success or failure of a canine search. What can a street cop do to hedge his bets when it comes to a successful canine search? We asked a few K-9 vets.

Standing Their Ground  

Most of us—Thank God—will never experience anything as emotionally, physically, and spiritually shattering as Hurricane Katrina. Short of an atomic bomb detonation or a biological attack, Katrina is as bad as it gets.

Glock G38 and G39 Compact Pistols  

Today's police handgun market abounds with full-sized, medium-sized, and compact .45 ACP pistols. But until recently the designers of these weapons all labored under a seemingly insurmountable constraint: size.

Shots Fired: Valparaiso, Indiana 07/15/2002  

At the sight of the silver patrol car with the bumble bee stripe, the children came running. They came running not with the usual curiosity of kids asking for perfunctory activations of lights and siren, but to tell Officer Todd Kobitz of the Valparaiso (Ind.) Police Department about the man who had harassed them.

Getting the Point  

Although I consider point shooting to be more natural than shooting with sights, there are definitely some tricks to it. I’ve been teaching people how to shoot this way for a long time and I’ve learned along the way that people “see” differently. Knowing how you see a target is the key to shooting accurately when point shooting.

5.11 Tactical H.R.T. Watch  

Not long ago the editor of this intrepid magazine approached me via e-mail and asked me to review the 5.11 Tactical H.R.T. Watch. I figured he had lost his mind; 5.11 Tactical makes clothing, boots, gear bags…but watches?

Public Safety Searches  

For at least 10 years, it has been clear that terrorists favor targeting transportation systems, high-density population venues, and symbolic structures.

Appleton (Wis.) Police Department  

The Appleton PD has received national attention for innovations in victim- and social-services-oriented sexual assault investigations, intercultural outreach to ensure services are fairly and effectively distributed to minority communities, and, most notably,  programs that address the real-life needs of its youngest residents.

No Movie Like Real Life  

It's interesting the subliminal effect that movies can have on us. Especially us cops, who are the subjects of at least one or two movies a year. Some of you may remember the movie "48 Hours" starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy.
