COVER STORY

SHOT Show 2015 Sneak Preview

By David Griffith
Each January the leading manufacturers of firearms, gear, equipment, and apparel debut many of their new products at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show. Here's a quick preview.

Features:

Mutualink: Opening Communication Channels
Produced by a company with the same name, Mutualink software has the potential to solve many radio interoperability problems. In addition, Mutualink has gone a step further and introduced technology that not only integrates radio communications, but also phone, video, and data.

About Face: Facial Recognition
Imagine you are working a rape case and you're trying to identify the perpetrator. He posted a video of the crime and a profile picture of himself on online. You can use the image to search for the individual via Vigilant Solutions' FaceSearch facial recognition software.

Mobile Print ID
Though mobile fingerprint technology has been in use in law enforcement for nearly a decade, continued enhancements are making the technology viable for agencies of all sizes.

Understanding the Black Bloc
While law enforcement typically recognizes anarchists by their trademark all-black clothing and mob stratagem, police are often otherwise unfamiliar with this criminal subculture. In order for law enforcement officers to effectively strategize for, safely interact with, and competently prosecute anarchists, a more in-depth examination is needed.

How to Keep Your Firearms Fit for Duty
In this article I'll focus specifically on firearms and offer my perspective on cleaning and routine maintenance. I can tell you that my methods have been honed over more than two decades of running guns and they've proven their worth.

Columns:

Take LE Critics to the "Funhouse"
Al Sharpton, Bill Clinton, and other self-righteous police critics need to spend some quality time in force-on-force scenario training. I call that training the "funhouse." And I use the term ironically because it teaches you that being an officer in high stress situations is anything but fun.

The One with the Effective Toys Wins
If some gizmo looks cool, but replaces nothing on your belt and yet requires you to change the way you do your job, you need to think twice, or three times, before acquiring it.
