November 17, 2009 | Editor's Corner

The Cleveland Division of Police welcomed academy cadet Karl Lloyd five months before his 51st birthday. The older recruit, who has begun patrols in the southeast section of the city, has said it was his lifelong dream to join the department. Prior to completing the 26-week academy, Lloyd escorted prisoners inside the city's jails. To warm yourself up for the podcast, read our initial news story about Lloyd. Then head back and listen to the man himself.

The Fallacy of the Nonviolent Offender

September 29, 2009 | Editor's Corner

As state budgets tighten all across the country, more and more people are arguing for the early release of the "non-violent" offender. That begs the question just how non-violent are these folks? The answer won't shock police officers. The answer is that most "non-violent" offenders are actually quite violent. They may even have committed violent crimes and plea bargained down to non-violent charges. And even if they are truly non-violent, that doesn't mean they haven't committed serious crimes.

Rethinking D.A.R.E.

September 29, 2009 | Editor's Corner

I have always been skeptical about "drug awareness" programs. But conversations with D.A.R.E. officers and their students during a 5.11 Tactical retreat in Montana have shown me the value of Drug Abuse Resistance Education.

Building a Better Patrol Car: Carbon Motors E7

July 16, 2009 | Editor's Corner

The Carbon Motors E7 prototype patrol vehicle looks something like a cross between an exotic sports car and a prop vehicle from a science fiction film. As collaboration between law enforcement officers and forward-thinking auto executives, the car is scheduled to be produced in 2012. A 3.0-liter clean-diesel engine powers a vehicle the company says may deliver 300 hp. Listen to our interview with Stacy Dean Stephens, the former Texas patrol officer who envisioned the car. We featured the car in the February 2009 issue.

The Economic Meltdown

July 13, 2009 | Editor's Corner

This editorial, titled "Brace for Impact," was our reaction to the beginnings of the economic meltdown triggered by the banking crisis. We predicted budget cuts would follow, and they have. It was written for the November 2008 issue.

Finding Uniforms to Fit Women

July 10, 2009 | Editor's Corner

Like many women in law enforcement, Officer Lori Connelly of the Phoenix Police Department has had difficulty finding uniforms that properly fit her. So she was pleasantly surprised at the better options female officers now have for uniform shirts, tactical pants and other gear. She tried out the apparel for her "Women's Wear," which appears in the July 2009 issue. What she found may pleasantly surprise you.

Terrorism With a Small "t"

July 10, 2009 | Editor's Corner

Although most people think of burning skyscrapers and car bombs when asked to define "terrorism." It's likely that you, as American law enforcement officers, will never face a full-blown al-Qaeda attack. Instead, your brush with terrorism will probably be a lone gunman with a political agenda. The editorial appeared in the July 2009 issue.

On-Body Video

July 10, 2009 | Editor's Corner

A decade ago in-car video was experimental. Now in-car video is standard for most patrol cars. The next evolution of patrol video—the on-body system—is already in the field and gaining in popularity. This editorial titled "The All Seeing Eye" explains why you will want to wear a video camera on duty. The editorial appeared in the June 2009.
