COVER STORY

Bullet-Proofing Your Rolling Office

By David Griffith
The murder of Sgt. Cory Wride and the attempted murder of Dep. Greg Sherwood reveal a key vulnerability in American police patrol vehicles: lack of protection from gunfire.

Features:

Training: Keeping It Real
We need to train like we fight so to speak, and the best way to do that is through some form of reality-based training. I mean scenarios, role-playing, dynamic training.

Less-Lethal: Mixed Blessings
It's well known that an offender who decides to resist arrest or attack a police officer must consider the possibility of being injured or even killed for doing so. What is unknown is how the proliferation of less-lethal weapons has changed and will change the way these men and women think.

Columns:

Self-Defense: An Eroding Right for Officers
The rights of law enforcement officers are under assault in this country. And no right should be dearer to you than your right to defend yourself against false claims and violent attacks.

Does Child Safety Come First?
When it comes to protecting our children at school, you'd rationally expect all hands in the fight. Unfortunately, some Washington, D.C., legislators have shamefully opted to sit on their hands and disrupt noble efforts to improve safeguards for our children.

Estate Planning: What Will You Do?
You have a "go-bag" for the rare active shooter and even visualize racing down a school hallway to put a stop to such evil. But do you have a "doomsday file" for your friends and loved ones should something happen to you?
