 A tribute to the railroad police officer
 Training for success despite diminished budgets
 June 21, 2013
Dear PoliceOne Member,

Yesterday, I learned about a young man in Colorado — whose uncle was a law enforcement officer murdered in the line of duty — who had just lost his treasured police patch collection when wildfire there consumed his home.

We posted that news and I wrote a column asking you to send a patch to help him rebuild that collection. Betsy Brantner Smith also makes this effort part of this week's Roll Call video.

Today I spoke by phone with that boy’s father — a Lieutenant with the Colorado Springs Police Department — who asked me to pass along his, his son’s, and his entire family’s gratitude for your kindness.

So thank you, my friends. You’re heroes — all of you.

Training for success despite diminished budgets

By Anthony Powalie, PoliceOne Contributor
Training in any agency should be a priority. Reductions in budgets are all too common, but this should not be an excuse for lack of training. There are ways to contain training costs while also providing effective training. Cui Bono

Using 'Not Today' and 'Below 100' on every shift

By Jason Welin, PoliceOne Member
