Suicide bombers have become a reality in Europe, the
Near and Middle East, but this terror has yet to be executed on
Americaâ€™s continental soil. Law enforcement organizations are
continually writing suicide neutralization policies. They take their
lead from the International Chiefs Association on dealing with suicide
bombers. Miami Police Chief John Timoney is quoted...read more

Pa. Officers Treated for Chemical Exposure

after police in Somerset County said they found him trying to kill
himself with a deadly gas created from household chemicals.

to identify, created hydrogen sulfide by mixing two unnamed household
The man parked his truck in the parking lot of Somerset Industrial
Park about 9 a.m. Saturday, in front of the Department of Public
Welfare. He placed a sign on his truck that said "call hazmat."
Way back when Andy Sipowitz was just a rookie walking a
beat in Times Square, we authored a piece for The Police Marksman
magazine titled "Complacency Quiz: Testing Your Survival IQ"
(November/December, 1985).The article became one of their most requested
pieces. It was such a success that The Police Marksman folks reprinted
it in The Best of the Police Marksman book, and a year later Calibre
Press, Inc. ran it in their Street Survival Seminar workbook. In sum and
substance, the test was really a self-assessment quiz for officers to
see if they might have lost that tactical edge and become complacent in
their day-to-day street tactics.
Well, the days of The Police Marksman are no more, and Law Officer
has emerged as the premier police publication for today's street cops
and trainers alike. So, hang on to your seats sports fans, it's time for
another one of those quizzes. We've updated and modified the questions

man who had devoted his life to the study microexpressions. What he

emotions (or unconciously repress their emotions), a very briefâ€“1/15 to
1/25 of a secondâ€“ facial expression often occurs, invisible to nearly
everyone. For instance, if you ask someone...read more
Rep. Grimm â€” a former Marine â€” hires a bodyguard to protect him in a post-Arizona world
Soldier-turned-Congressman Michael Grimm has hired a
former NYPD detective who will â€œact as a bodyguardâ€ for himself and
staffers in the wake of the Arizona shootings â€” but Brooklynâ€™s lone
Republican member of Congress is apparently our only local lawmaker to
take such a drastic step.
Grimm (Râ€“Bay Ridge) said that the employee â€” who is one of 10 local
staffers and has a military background â€” will act as a security guard at
big events, plus help local war vets get available benefits.
Grimmâ€™s spokeswoman did not make the freshman lawmaker available to
explain his personnel decisions, nor would she give the guardâ€™s name or
salary. But the other members of Brooklynâ€™s Congressional delegation â€”
all Democrats â€” said that they...read more
