Going Door to Door

By Ramesh Nyberg

In a major criminal investigation, getting off your ass and knocking on some doors is essential. In fact, it is a crucial element in the early stages of working an unsolved case. The area canvass-knocking on the doors of all the residences surrounding the crime scene-is one of the first tasks a lead detective should have on his lead sheet.

Para-Ordnance Tac-Five LDA Pistol  

There can be no denying that the most popular semi-automatic pistol of all time is John Moses Browning’s venerable Model 1911. The Model 1911 served the U.S. Army for almost a century; its popularity with civilian shooters knows few bounds, and it dominates the action pistol shooting sports. Oddly enough, however, the 1911 never gained much of a following among American law enforcement agencies. The reasons for this can be summed up in two words: tradition and litigation.

Shots Fired: Binghamton, N.Y. 05/14/2002  

New York State Troopers Shawn Dean and John Spero had been parked at the side of the highway, driver’s window-to-driver’s window, comparing notes and spooking speeders into slowing down. Dean was content with the notion that everyone was pretty much adhering to the speed limit, if only for the moment. At six o’clock p.m., it was the mid-point of his shift, and Spero’s stint was almost over.

Know Their Flight Plans  

When it comes to apprehending fleeing suspects, understanding the tactics being used by those suspects is as important as understanding the tactics practiced by law enforcement. The criminal element has learned how law enforcement operates and criminals have adjusted their tactics.

Entry to Quell a Disturbance
