  • Tasers are like any other tool-------IF you use them properly. That means not as a pain-compliance tool but to incapacitate while you take the subject into custody. The problem is having enough Officers there to manage the subject & getting both probes into the individual to be effective. Providing...

    replied to So, revolver for duty use?
    Started with a revolver in my career, back in '76, did the transition "thing" and unless there was a specific assignment or physical restriction I can't see going back to a revolver, and the reasons have already been mentioned. Now I can see from an optics perspective why one may want to go...

  • This is a free-enterprise Country. Just what is it you're trying to remedy? His marketing? The dogs? Training? There's no national licensing to be a "trainer" so one's opinions/views (even mine!) are just that----OPINIONS! But I don't understand what you're asking

    replied to Slowing dog down on drug sniff
    Just my opinion----------------first WHY is the dog fast? If you used solely motivational training, then to me, logic would suggest increase the number of finds so the dog always anticipates the find and will simply get bored with the find & slow himself down. That's alot of work. "DiveCop"...

    replied to Use of lethal force in television
    Don't feel too bad. Years ago I stumbled onto a real armed (gun) car-jacking & chased one of the armed suspects on foot. When he tried to run into a house that wasn't his, I took a shot at him---missed---but took a shot. He gave up & as is SOP I went through a shooting review. In the end I got...

    replied to Where Should Aspiring Leos Go?
    First ask yourself what type of LE you want to do. There's sooooo many areas. Decide that first then look for an agency

    replied to Use of lethal force in television
    Hollywood is "interesting", isn't it? We've trained for such a scenario but what "L-1" says is EXACTLY right. However, as a human being, what would YOU do or EXPECT the LEO to do? If you have to ponder this for more than a second, you've answered your own question & I hope you're...

  • Transparency, without giving away classified or tactical info on LE's part is always a good idea. It lets the Public know where their dollars are going, why and the results of their investment (aka taxes). It also allows the Public to see just how much crap LEOs put up with daily

    replied to Aspiring LEO Questions and Fears
    IMO, look for an agency that's kind of liberal in its drug use policy(Phx PD for one). Apply, explain your past circumstances HONESTLY and hope for the best. Alot of agencies are short of personal, have liberal management or simply don't think 10,15 or more years since drug use is no big deal....

    replied to Serious question to long-serving LEO's
    The idea would get very little if any support. And the reasons are numerous. Calls for de-funding, lack of support by any branch of management, sections of LE/military/security not wanting to relinquish control of their responsibility and the sheer lack of numbers to support the idea makes it unachievable....

    replied to I Have an Idea
    I'm a BIG fan of K9s and 2-man units so I understand where you're coming from. But the idea is simply too expensive. To purchase a dog alone is in the 5-7k dollar range, then there's training to orient him to what the dept. requires. Plus theirs maintenience, post-service upkeep and equipping the car...

    replied to Command discipline
    Any discipline has to be explained. How it affects your hiring depends on Command Staff. IMO, be honest, explain what you learned from your discipline and how you would avoid a repeat performance of the violation.

    replied to Looking To Hear The Perspectives Of LEO
    These are all good questions but an LEOs natural suspicion will result in few responses. IMO, a better route to take for the OP would be to look at local LE for answers since that would be the most relevant for him. The poll could cover as big an area, say 500 sq. mi., as he wants yet be applicable...

    replied to Could it really come to this?
    "Soldier of Fortune" magazine did an article long ago on the necessity of private security in a future world. The article was written in the '80s. You're seeing wealthy people doing this now by way of supplementing their gated communities with armed guards or low-level politicians (Democrats...

  • EXACTLY! LEOs aren't super-atheletes, super-models, geniuses, psychological supermen, infallible marksmen or anything else. They're human, sometimes with above-average talent in a particular skill but faaaaaaar from infallible or far from always corrupt (depending on what show/movie you're watching)....

  • The absence of crime is the indicator of police efficiency. Now how you achieve that is VERY subjective as no 2 areas, how close in proximity, demographic or financial status are the same. That said, I think ANY LEO in ANY agency needs to remember that & where their paycheck comes from. For...

    Hi Frosty! To answer some of your questions------------
    Phx PD is a good dept in many ways BUT it's a large, conservative agency that's very image conscious and always has been. I'm speaking from 44yrs of experience. The current Chief is ,like many as much a politician as a LEO ---read into that...
