Editor's Note:

Today’s newsletter features two articles written by PoliceOne columnists in the wake of the recently completed IACP conference in San Diego. Senior Contributor Charles Remsberg recaps IACP presentations addressing “steroid abusers” and “fitness neglecters” among LEOs, while PoliceOne Legal Columnist Ken Wallentine writes about the IACP Legal Officers Section workshop which examined upcoming U.S. Supreme Court cases in which the Court will reexamine the Belton rule permitting the search incident to arrest. We encourage you to check out our IACP Special Coverage page for complete and continuing coverage of the event, including photo slideshows, product reports, synopses if keynote addresses, and other valuable information.
