Editor's Note: We are sad to report the loss of H. Scott Kingwell, 78, who began publishing Law and Order magazine in 1979 and built it into one of the foundational publications in law enforcement, a mission now carried on by his sons, Henry and Peter. Throughout his career, Scott was a tireless advocate for keeping officers well informed and he stood as a prominent, respected and well-liked figure at scores of law enforcement events. Scott will be missed and his efforts will not be forgotten.
