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

July 30, 2010 | Author Interviews

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.
