Dear PoliceOne Member,

Welcome to The Straight Shooter, the newsletter dedicated to hard-hitting investigative journalism, uncovering the hidden stories shaping police work. In this edition, learn about the ACLU's call for 'mugshot makeovers,' how Simon Cowell is bringing C-rap to the masses, and the ways new legislation is putting cop impersonators to work.

With the addition of "SnoCops," crime rates are freezing all across the Northern Tier, and a Calif. chief is asking citizens to help critique officers' performances by filming their every move — 24/7.

— Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne Editor in Chief
