 By Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne Editor in Chief

These activities should be a wake-up call for all of us.

Training to Win

LEOSA Self Defense Plan For Retired Law Enforcement
Under LEOSA, eligible retired LEOs are legally entitled to possess a firearm for self-defense. Unfortunately, most traditional homeowner's policies specifically exclude losses resulting from the use of such a weapon. PSDA provides affordable, comprehensive insurance. Premiums start as low as $250 per year for $100,000 limit of liability.

Operation Switch: Going operational

By Jack Miller, PoliceOne Member
The storefront was open for business, but they had to get the word out about the new fence in town. Two undercover narcotics detectives were brought into the operation. They would strike up a conversation asking if the person would like to "help me out and earn ten bucks."
