Crime Scene Response for the Patrol Officer

By David Spraggs

The actions you take as a first responder can determine the value of crime scene evidence for investigators and prosecutors.

The MILO processor from IES lets trainers create their own branched instructive scenarios for the company's Range 2000 and Range 3000 law enforcement simulator systems.

How to Train with Simulators  

Anyone who has ever watched “Star Trek: The Next Generation”—that’s the one with Picard, not Kirk—has probably noticed a special room on the Enterprise called the “Holo-Deck.” The Holo-Deck uses holograms, transporters, replicators, and other unlikely science-fiction technologies to create an immersive virtual reality that can be used by the Enterprise crew for both recreation and ultra-realistic training.

Training Aids  

The proper equipment can make your training safer and more effective.

Death Masks  

It took the perseverance of Det. Dale Bunten and the skill of forensic sculptor Wesley Neville, a lieutenant at the Florence County (S.C.) Sheriff’s Office, to link the remains of a small-framed teenager to missing 14-year-old Tara Exposito.

Mission Statement  

Anyone who has ever sat in the editor’s chair of a magazine will tell you that a magazine is a living organism.

By the Numbers  

The police in my area made national news when a local dog owner and repeat offender of the leash law tricked them into issuing a citation for a $50 fine to his dog. The dog owner made a mockery of the situation by requesting a hearing on behalf of the dog, and reporters found that very amusing.

Resolutions for Cops  

Ah, the first month of the new year. It’s a month of parties, football, snow or snowbirds (depending on where you live), and just generally good feelings. Then the winter wears on. Football ends for nearly everybody’s team; ice appears on the roadways at the worst time (who hasn’t had the thrill of that tactical 360-degree spin en route to a call); and all those resolutions you made suddenly become ancient history.


Reviews

Lewis Machine & Tool's Monolithic Rail Platform can turn any AR-15 into a much more accurate rifle.

Lewis Machine & Tool Monolithic Rail Platform  

Lewis Machine & Tool Co. has just introduced what may be the next evolutionary step in the ongoing development of the AR-15/M-16 family of rifles. Called the Monolithic Rail Platform (MRP), the rifle was designed to cure some ills common to this weapon system and provide some needed options. Featuring an innovative one-piece receiver/handguard system and quick barrel-change capability, the MRP is destined to find favor with SWAT officers.

The LockTight media can only be read by the proprietary LockTight card reader. The reader intefaces with the PC via FireWire. Lexar LockTight CompactFlash cards are signified by the "Lt" logo. The cards are professional-quality digital media, so they're not cheap.

Image Security Guard  

Lexar’s new LockTight security system helps preserve the chain of evidence for digital photography.

Orange County (Fla.) Sheriff's Dep. Jennifer Fulford came to the aid of two children inside a vehicle in a garage between her and two armed home invaders.

Shots Fired: Pine Hills, Florida 05/05/2004  

Orange County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Deputy Jennifer Fulford had a lot on her mind on May 5, 2004. Having just paid for her wedding dress, the logistics of her nuptials were weighing on the 31-year-old deputy as she began her patrol. There was still so much to do, and time was a precious commodity.

The Push/Pull Drill  

You are trying to take a DUI suspect into custody when he turns suddenly and makes a grab for your gun. The fight is now on. Unfortunately for this bad guy, you have practiced your weapon-retention skills and you regain control of your sidearm.

Pelican's M6 2390 is a 3-watt Luxeon LED light that produces 61 Lumens. It offers a run time of more than 4.5 hours when constantly on.

Davis Rules  

In a fairly common scenario, you obtain a valid Miranda waiver from a suspect in custody and begin interrogation. Part-way through your questioning, the suspect begins to feel uneasy about going forward and says something about remaining silent or talking to a lawyer.

Boise (Idaho) Police Department  

Clearly, the city needed to pay more attention to recreation on and around the river. In response, over the span of several years, Boise PD added four more full-time bike officers as well as eight school resource officers.
