PoliceOne April 1 Newsletter

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, we offer the latest news on the crisis unfolding regarding local officers' lunch plans, insider information on the officer suspended for 'not shutting up about Crossfit,' and explore whether or not a police weight loss challenge was sabotaged by a firefighter bake sale.

The legalization of marijuana has given rise to an unanticipated side effect — an increase in the theft of snack food. A new beer can changes colors to indicate how close you are to committing a crime, and area police are getting training on the best ways to snap a 'selfie.'

— Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne Editor in Chief
