In this month's eNews, PoliceOne Contributor John Hein — the author of Inside Internal Affairs: An In-Depth Look at the People, Process and Politics — discusses his philosophy on why background checks are so important. PoliceOne Contribtor Thane Gallagher explains why the number 17 is his measure of success. PoliceOne Member Phil Jones explores the notion of 'risk management' from the patrol supervisor perspective.

Finally, don't forget our lineup of career-related news, including the story of an Ohio trooper who was reinstated after being fired over leaving a drunk man at Taco Bell.
