The 10 year anniversary of the 09/11 attack is quickly approaching. Police, Fire and America suffered a great loss on that day. Since that time our nation and armed forces have continued to take hits as we take the fight to the cowards.
Tucson PD SWAT is holding an in memoriam stair…Continue

Three cheers and major applause to Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, and Judge Kevin M. Dougherty, Supervising judge of the Philadelphia Family Court Juvenile Division, for having the guts to unhesitatingly take a tough stance and speak out on the critical problem of flash mobs in Philadelphia. Dubbed the city of “Brotherly Love,” Philadelphia in recent weeks has been out of control with outrageously violent incidents that have evolved from flash…Continue

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,…Continue

At Motorola's Executive Summit yesterday, Paul Steinberg, Motorola chief technology officer, showed off a head-worn computer as he asked the perennial question: “What next?”
He looked to recent trends for clues.
“Tablets have revolutionized the PC within 18 months of their release,” says Steinberg. He also points to the prevalence of smartphones, social media and video as evidence of a shifting paradigm.
“The next phase of computing is contextual,” he says. In…Continue

Say it ain't so! The FOX TV network announced today that the 23-year-old television crime victim advocacy show "America's Most Wanted" has been, in all intents and purposes, canceled, except for four two hour specials a year.
Sad day for crime victims, law enforcement officers and a scary thought that criminals will now have an easier time of it without their face plastered every week in front of 8 million viewers.
I spent 20 years working at the show – my personal record was…Continue

In addition to the daily challenges he confronts as being a cop, United States Capitol Police Officer J. J. Paulin faces another personal challenge of a monumental nature. His eight-year-old son, Hunter, was born with 16 heart defects and has Shones Complex—a rare syndrome that comprises four severe heart defects that prevent the blood from entering and exiting his heart. The most severe of the defects is the Mitral Valve. His young son takes blood thinners daily that present…

Chuck Humes’ ILEETA presentation began auspiciously: with a slide that read “ILEETA 2011” and undulating music that built to crescendo as the letters of the slide morphed from fire to stone and back again.
But Humes kept the attention of the standing-room-only crowd with more than just fancy audio and visuals. His Critical Combative Concepts presentation dealt with basic, if hard, truths.
“Martial arts, when you get right down to it, are about maiming, crippling or killing,” he…Continue

Washington D. C.'s loss was Philadelphia's gain when former Metropolitan Police Chief, Charles Ramsey, became the Police Commissioner in Philadelphia. His three decades of broad-based experience in law enforcement made him well versed to tackle just about any challenge in any jurisdiction. His success in reducing crime, as he did in the nation's Capitol, was a trend that he continued in Philadelphia. He also made notable efforts to weed out some corrupt cops in that jurisdiction, and his…Continue

There have been 13 murders in the first 14 days of 2011 in Prince George’s County Maryland.

Traffic court is fun. It's like a box of chocolates. You never know what your gonna get. (She nods to Forrest Gump). But before you get to the courtroom there has to be a ticket, and before the ticket is the alleged violation.
So flash back to about six weeks before court. I'm driving around town in my mobile crime fighting platform, minding my own…Continue
We used to have a night club out on the beach that had a real party atmosphere. All the young people and some old people who were on good medication would go to drink and dance.

If you ever wanted to head out your door to work and found your way blocked by an alligator on your front porch you'd know how the guy who called one morning felt. He opened his front door to find a hissing, smiling, tail flicking spitfire about 3 ft. long.
Not a big gator but still it had an attitude that kept a wise person from tempting fate. Just enough to get the rookie's feet wet a little. They carry a bacteria in their mouth that can cause serious infection and…Continue
