COVER STORY

Lessons Learned From Aurora

By Ronnie Garrett
The Aurora incident drives home the need to train today's first responders in medical response and triage. In a mass shooting there will be many victims with traumatic injuries and there will be a need to prioritize victims and administer advanced first aid.

Crowd Management: Preparing for the Storm  

The good news is that crowd management and crowd control techniques have been refined over the last few years. The bad news is you're going to need them and more to keep the peace. So this is a good time to review crowd management tactics and prepare yourself for the hard days ahead.

How to Find Funding for Specialty Vehicles  

The Homeland Security grants that seemed to grow on trees after 9/11 are not as plentiful as they once were. But that's not to say law enforcement agencies can't obtain grant funding for specialty vehicles. They just might need to approach it differently.

Columns:

The High Price of Fame  

The Columbine killers, the Virginia Tech murderer, and the Aurora shooting suspect have all become household names. And I believe that the desire for stardom is at least part of the motivation for these massacres.

Convicted in the Media  

Special Agent Chris Deedy has been charged with second-degree murder in Hawaii following an off-duty shooting in front of a McDonald's in Waikiki. Headlines were quick to characterize Deedy as a killer and a murderer.

The Dose Makes the Poison  

When you're a young officer, moderation seems likely to leave you missing more than a few good times. I think back to the "choir practices" I participated in as a young Tucson cop only to awaken in the afternoon looking for the train that hit me.
