Weinblatt's Tips column: "10 tips for officers engaged in off-duty incidents"
In the wake of the Salt Lake City mall shooting incident involving an off-duty
Ogden City Police officer, I spoke with one of our police academy recruit
classes.  As typical the almost 40 newly minted “blue
shirts” were eager to embark on their law enforcement careers and make a
difference.  They were eager to get involved and for most of them, that
included the notion of off-duty action to protect and serve.

Weinblatt's Tips column: "PoliceOne Exclusive: Domestic disturbance
response: 10 tips for winning
at these volatile calls"
Around ten years ago, as a patrol division deputy sheriff with the Santa Fe
County Sheriff's Department in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I walked up some
porch stairs to knock on the door of a mobile home. Suddenly, I was tackled
on the front porch by a 175-pound sheet rock hanger who was annoyed that I
responded to the repeat domestic violence 911 calls to dispatchers that came
in while we were enroute.

Reserve Power column: "The Flip Side: Why Some Reserves Hate Cops"
Last month’s Reserve Power for Officer.com, “Why Some Cops Hate
Reserves,” was among the most read columns. I was inundated with emails
(some rather lengthy) which underscored that the topic hit a nerve with both
reservists and their full-time counterparts. This month’s column explores the
flip side: why some reserves hate the full-time officers they assist.

Career Corner column: "How to Keep Your Boss Happy: How to acquire
power in the agency"
Whether it’s chief, sheriff, colonel, superintendent, director, or commissioner,
the top honcho in a law enforcement agency is the one that most law enforcers
want to impress. In short, they view their boss’
happiness as inextricably intertwined with theirs. In the police world’s career
oriented individual’s reality, the score is not kept so much as by the size of
year-end bonuses, like in the private sector; rather it is measured by the
acquisition of influence and proximity to those in power.

Reserve Power column: "Why Some Cops Hate Reserves: A crack in the

We’ve all heard the names at one time or another: “rent-a-cop,” “wannabe,”
“2.5,” as well as a host of other derogatory terms. There has long been a
sense of friction between reserve and full-time officers
in many departments. That animosity rises to the level of hate and is more
pronounced in certain regions of the country. This Reserve Power column
examines why such negativity abounds.

The Police and the Press column: "Press releases: Used and abused"
Here is a very common question that I get from police chief and public
information officer (PIO) types: "What is the appropriate use of press releases
in police media relations?" Back in the '80s, when I owned a New York City
metro public relations firm, the use of press releases were the staple of the
much smaller media industry. But the rules have changed since then. This
Police and the Press column covers how and when you should use press
releases so that you do not use and abuse them or, for that matter, your media

“Here’s what we think of your ##@@**!! yellow brick!” said the note on top
of the shoebox on top of the New Jersey police chief’s desk. He had returned
to his office only to find his coveted gold painted brick, which was awarded to
him when he completed the famed yellow brick road long distance run at the
end of his stint at the prestigious FBI National Academy, was smashed into
pieces. While the pulverized brick turned out to be a fake, substituted as part
of a practical joke by officers in his agency,
the pride he felt from having attended the FBI National Academy was
certainly real.

Weinblatt's Tips column: "Police officer suicide prevention: Officers kill
themselves at higher rate than general population"
The seasonal spike in suicides during the Christmas/New Years holiday period
is no secret to veteran law enforcement officers. What may come as a surprise
is the high number of officers that, to use the old phrase, "eat their gun." The
recent suicides of two New Orleans Police officers during the stresses of
Hurricane Katrina brought the topic into the news and public view. The
stressors of the holidays and police work form a deadly combination that
leads some officers to kill themselves.

Reserve Power column: "The Ultimate Sacrifice: Line of Duty Deaths
Underscore Officers’ Service"
Reserve Officer Russell Simpson was part of a group of officials in Bandon,
Oregon, attempting to rescue a thirteen-year-old boy from the ocean surf. The
51-year-old had served as a reserve for four years with the small, but close-
knit Bandon Police Department. The teen, along with others swept into the
currents, were rescued on that fateful December day in 2003. All that is
except for Simpson. Simpson was a retired firefighter with the Los Angeles
County Fire Department in California and drowned during his efforts to save
the teenager.

Career Corner column: "Academic Jobs for the Cop: How to Land those

Many cops fantasize of retiring to that dream job in academia working 20
hours a week with students who hang on their every word Usually, that
fantasy is set in a more temperate climate where the sun never sets. For many
who pursue the ivory tower second career path, the cold wind of reality sets in
as they turn in their application. This Career Corner column focuses on how to
get those positions and what to expect when you get there. For reasons of
space, I’ll examine teaching opportunities in
community colleges, the most common setting.

Weinblatt's Tips column: "Creative cuffing for small-wristed subjects"
In defensive tactics for policing, we're always looking for ways to control (that
operative word is bolded on purpose) the behaviorally challenged individual.
Unfortunately, not all wrists come in a convenient size to fit our handcuffs.
Many people with slender wrists, particularly juveniles, are able to slip out of
the cuffs despite our best efforts to do the right things. This Weinblatt's Tips
column covers what you can do with creative cuffing to control escape-prone

Reserve Power column: "The Original Homeland Security Force: For

You’ll never guess who really is the original “homeland security” protection
force. Go ahead, try to guess. Long before homeland security became the
new catch phrase and the latest law enforcement trend, citizen officers
volunteered with little fanfare. Their buzzword was “reserves.”

speaker in a foreign language speaking household to give an account of an
incident or they're a victim you need to speak with, the junior members of our
society can be a powerful addition to your case.

Weinblatt's Tip column: "Death notifications: A tough police assignment"
Handling death notifications is a necessary part of the job that few law
enforcement officers enjoy. It can be traumatic for the officer, as well as for
the family members. Delivering a death message is a duty that is vitally
important with far-reaching ramifications in people's lives. Handled poorly,
extreme situations can develop. Family members and others advised of the
passing of a loved one can themselves become the object of a death
notification after they have committed suicide.

Weinblatt's Tips column: "10 ways to minimize complaints"
Countless times I have dealt with citizens who came to my office with
complaints regarding the conduct of law enforcers in my agency. While many
of them turned out to be unfounded after an investigatory look, a few citizen
initiated objections are grounded in misunderstanding and even some truth.

Weinblatt's Tip column: "Firearms training: train like you play"
As a firearms instructor, I have noticed a vast difference between veteran
police officers and deputy sheriffs who take range qualifications and training
time seriously and those who merely view it as a chore to get done with and
move on. While the shooting techniques themselves may be okay and get
them through yet another re-qualification stint, it seems that some gun toting
law enforcers take shortcuts in these sessions that could impact their survival.

Weinblatt's Tips column: "Crime scenes: stopping the evidence eradication
I remember years ago standing guard on a crime scene and hearing detectives
lament that the "evidence eradication gremlins have been here." They were
referring to first responders. Firefighters and EMS personnel handling
emergency medical response to a patient (no offense to them as they are doing
a necessary job) have particularly been long joked about in police circles as
being "evidence eradication gremlins."

Editorial: "A rip in fabric that holds law enforcement together"
Like many Americans, I watched with great interest, and with increasing
anger, the recent beating of a 64-year-old retired schoolteacher on the streets
of New Orleans. The glare of the public eye almost wasn't there. A New
Orleans police horse appeared to be made to walk backward, apparently to
the probing eye of the TV camera.

In a February 1992 media relations article I wrote for Law and Order

that the "police haven't learned to market themselves."  The absence of a
police marketing mentality was true in 1992, and I think it is still the case in

Career Corner column: "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Online College
Whether in New Mexico, North Carolina, or Florida, you can hear the same
concern aired by veteran police officers and deputy sheriffs nationwide: they
need college education to compete for promotions,
but their rotating schedules slow down their eagerness to get back into a
traditional college environment. Heavily marketed online college degrees seem
to be the answer to many, but it is not a path to be taken without some
knowledge of the online education industry.

Officer Safety Tip: "Officer safety: It's not just an on-duty thing"
So much is written in this and other venues regarding officer safety.  It's also a
topic that police trainers cover extensively.  Even with the popularity of of the
officer safety topic, many law enforcers end their officer safety thinking when
they're off the clock.  As with other tactical issues in law enforcement,
planning is the key to successfully accomplishing the public safety mission.  
Here are some officer safety issues to consider in your off-duty life:

Officer Safety Tip: "The forgotten piece of equipment: handcuffs"

piece of equipment: our handcuffs.

Officer Safety Tip & Training Tip: "Intersection safety for backup units"
When I teach Vehicle Operations in the Basic Law Enforcement Academies, I
tell the recruits that the second police vehicle through the intersection during a
priority run or pursuit is not the safer one; rather
it is the more dangerous place to be.  Drivers hear the sirens and see the
patrol car go through and then assume the coast is clear.  They are not looking
for and often do not hear the second responding unit.

"Does TV Depict 'Real Life' Police Work?"
"We sincerely appreciate Richard's continuing contribution to
"Law and Order."  His timely and well developed articles and
regular column on Reserve Officer activities... have helped make
this publication a leader in the field."

Bruce W. Cameron
Editorial Director
Law and Order Magazine
Wilmette, IL

"Richard has proved himself as a valuable asset to our
publication.  There are few law enforcement authors I trust to
make assignments to, knowing his end product requires only a
brief review by me or my staff.  And when you equate that with
time saved, Richard's efforts are truly appreciated.  I would like
to have more writers of the same caliber."

Randall C. Resch
Police Magazine
Carlsbad, CA

"Richard's hard work for four years on "The Shield" Magazine
and the NJAPOA was clear to all the members.  He built the
magazine from the ground up and the publication helped establish
the association as a bonified and respected member of the New
Jersey police community."
