COVER STORY

Financial Literacy for Cops

By Dean Scoville
If ever a cop had to concern himself with providing for his family today and tomorrow, it is now. To that end, some cops have taken on second and even third jobs; others have deferred their retirement. And still they worry.

Features:

Hand-Held Substance Detectors for Patrol  

The technologies that detect the presence of unknown substances aren't just for specialized units anymore. More individual police officers are using these devices as they become more advanced, portable, and suitable for everyday use.

Treatment and Redemption  

With the help of strategic partnerships and programs aimed at treating addicted officers, treatment centers are opening their doors to first responders, helping them get better and return to work.

Rethinking SWAT Training  

What SWAT fitness experts are discovering is that some of this wear and tear and incapacitation can be avoided with "smart" training instead of "hard" training. Smart training is real-world oriented and job applicable. It's not just training for the sake of training.

Columns:

Cops and Psychology  

Cops should be most concerned about flaws in studies involving PTSD. Post-traumatic stress wasn't even recognized as a disorder until 1980, and then suddenly it was everywhere, caused by everything and happening to everyone.

Fourth Amendment Blues  

Essentially, because of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. And the public has no sympathy whatsoever for your precarious position.
