Death & the Role of the Trainer

In an upcoming column, Train the Trainer columnist, RK Miller, talks about how death traditionally hasn't been introduced as a concept to new officers. He thinks it's the trainer's role to do so. Why? Because sooner or later new officers are going to see death up close--age-related deaths, grizzly murders, car crash scenes, the death of colleagues in the line of duty--they may even be called upon to end a suspect's life. And sooner or later, every officer will confront their own mortality. What…See More

Peter Berghammer, One of a Kind & Terribly Missed

Law enforcement lost a brilliant and abiding friend when Peter Berghammer died unexpectedly last Saturday, just 51 years old, from heart failure.It may seem the sort of cliché overstatement you would expect at such a moment, but there truly was no one else like him. Anyone who knew him would agree.    I met Peter at the SMILE (Social Media, the Internet and Law Enforcement) conference in Washington, D.C., back in April 2010, at which he spoke on security matters. They called him Dr. Doom.“Doom”…See More

It was recently my privilege to sit down to lunch with Dan Crowley, president of Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems, to discuss the importance of technology in law enforcement and where that technology might be headed.Foremost, Crowley takes a holistic approach to problem solving—which is what technology is at its essence: a means to solve problems. He looks at the system from afar before recommending solutions, and he thinks big. Crowley encourages law enforcement to think big, too.“From the…See More

Exercise videos for Police?

Anyone know of videos that can be shared with patrol guys? I'm looking for something short and to the point. Could be CrossFit or just weights or whatever. What kind of workouts are you doing? Thanks, Crawford
