Dear PoliceOne Member,

We're very pleased to welcome Keith Bettinger to our ever-growing roster of writers. Keith has written several essays for the P1 First Person Series, and literally hundreds of articles for a variety of law enforcement publications in the United States. I was able to spend quality time with Keith during the annual Public Safety Writers Association meeting in Las Vegas, and during one of our long talks we both agreed we'd need to have a regular feature from Keith here on PoliceOne. Check out his official debut below.
