  • A small town department around here had a chief that was taking confiscated guns and, instead of destroying them per state law, was turning them in to a local gun shop in trade for firearms for department use. While that could have maybe been handled with a strong reprimand, what did him in was turning...

  • I'm curious about this statement -- I work for a large-ish university police agency. While we do have a few 'legacies' on staff, AFAIK they had to jump through the same hoops and meet the same standards as any other applicants. I myself 'knew someone'...several someones, in fact, all the way to the...

    Best radio earpiece

    I haven't been happy with any of the standard-issue radio earpieces offered by my department. So I'm looking to purchase my own, and would be interested in some suggestions. My perfect earpiece would have the following features:

    replied to Should I reconsider pursuing LE?
    If this is a possibility in your area, I would strongly second the idea.

    While I was in a different career field, I caught the LE bug in my 30s. But I was in a position (financially, family acceptance, etc.) where making a major career shift to law enforcement didn't seem right for me....

    I've owned a S&W 642 Airweight for years, and used to use it on rare occasions when I felt the need for off-duty carry and my single-stack S&W auto wasn't appropriate. On occasion, I would carry it in a pocket holster.

    The department I was with for most of my career had pretty loose...

  • I really thing this is the wrong place to get your question answered -- LE academies vary widely throughout the U.S. Not only does each state have its own standards, but different academies within the states can significantly differ in how they choose to meet those standards. At least, that's the case...

  • For the sake of the discussion, I'll assume you have truly changed your life around and have nothing but the best of intentions. As seasoned law enforcement professionals, that's often a hard leap for many of us to make, because most of come into frequent contact with people who say much the same thing...yet...

  • I did some googling and I'm wondering if he was referring to the Federal Protective Service. I've seen one of their vehicles in my area, usually around where our local FBI/DEA/ATF have their field offices. What's the scope of their responsibilities?
