Editor's Note:

In this month's edition of Career eNews, Lance Eldridge looks at the difficult — and too often sensationalized — issue of PTSD as it relates to hiring and retaining war veterans in police ranks. Meanwhile Matt Stiehm discusses the careers of cops in 'specialized' departments like campus police, transit cops, and park rangers. We also feature this week's P1 First Person essay from PoliceOne Member Shawn Hill, who writes on the five powers of the FTO.

Finally, we all know that your safety and success on the streets is impacted by what you do off duty as well. We want to know what you most like to do in your off time. Cast your vote in our Homepage Poll, or send us an email describing your favorite off-duty activities.
