Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Law Officer WebTeam's discussion Reality and Fictional TV - Does It Hurt Your Department?
"Detroit 187 was a great show that was cancelled way to early. Can TV/movies help LE and CJ, absolutely! Many do. Mostly TV in my view, though movies can and do.  I think we dismiss them wrongly. "

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Shana Baldassari's discussion Favorite Cop or Crime TV Show?
"I watch most of them. I think Southland may be the best portrayal with Blue Bloods a close second."

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Law Officer WebTeam's discussion Law Officer Editor-in-Chief on the Outcome of the Ex-Cop Turned Evil Rambo Case
"It ended as it needed to, bad guy dead.  Unfortunately, there are a variety of media types blaming us, rather than the villain. Unbelieveable. Two cops dead, two wounded, two citizens dead and we're to blame. Why am I not surprised."

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Michael LoSchiavo's discussion Off duty carry; who carries what and why......
"In addition to a gun, what else do you carry off duty (badge [if so, what kind, belt or badge case], cuffs, etc)?"

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Michael LoSchiavo's discussion Off duty carry; who carries what and why......
"Where did you get your 15 shot magazine? Or are you using a full size mag?"

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Do You Display Your Gun While Off Duty?
"Nope. Never. Nada.  This may be one of the more stupid things we do. Unless you're working in a soft uniform, you should never, ever, in my view display your badge and gun. Why make yourself a target unnecessarily?"

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Bill Breault's discussion Request for Assistance in the group Law Enforcement Trainers
"If you have an active Internet connection where you'll be training, you can pull them in their own tab and then show them that way. I think - think - Wondershare can download them. I can check this Th when I get back home if you want."

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Shana Baldassari's discussion Traditional vs. Tactical Uniforms?
"The head gear is a strange. The other makes sense. Not so the head gear. Any rationale?"
Apr 20, 2012
Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Shana Baldassari's discussion Traditional vs. Tactical Uniforms?
"I think Class A's should be for formal occasions only. I'm beginning to be partial to the polo shirt/BDU type pants. You can get polo's in short and long sleeve and I think make for a good look and a whole lot more comfortable for…"

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Off-Duty Jobs for Cops
"A conundrum to be sure. Many cops working "uniform" security see themselves as cops first, security second. When the lawsuits fly, the department will be part of it, you can bet on that."
Feb 27, 2012
Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Nicole Reino's discussion Off-Duty Jobs for Cops
"Being a copper and working private security (as a civilian) my biggest problem generally is the lack of willingness of the cops (in uniform) to do anything. Doesn't speak for everyone I worked with, but most seemed to want to collect the pretty…"

Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Bruce Z.'s discussion Foot Pursuit Training in the group Law Enforcement Trainers
"Andre Belotto, LAPD, several years ago wrote an interesting paper on foot pursuits. It might be on the Web. If not, I'm guessing he'd send you a copy."
Nov 3, 2011
Dr Jeffrey P. Rush replied to Lawrence Lujan-Jericho's discussion Generational Teaching Techniques: Are We Getting It Wrong in the group Academy Instructors
"I wholeheartedly agree and support your effort here. Even willing to assist as might be needed.   The idea that we in criminal justice, especially law enforcement, should concede to the GenYer or Millennial or whatever they're being called…"
