Editor's Note:

We continue to mourn the loss of four Lakewood police officers and bring you more commentary and analysis of the tragedy. Read below for three new articles from PoliceOne columnists, including Betsy Smith's take on why Officer Benjamin Kelly's winning mindset — and not "good fortune" — allowed him to bring Maurice Clemmons down.

On another topic, Ed Nowicki, founder of ILEETA, is requesting assistance from officers and agencies on the topic of tattoos, body piercings, and hair length (including facial hair). If you have information on your agency's policies — as well as hi-res photos — to share, please email him to contribute at ed.nowicki@policeone.com.

Officer Benjamin Kelly: The mindset to win a split-second confrontation
P1 Exclusive
The Seattle Times wrote that Officer Benjamin Kelly of the Seattle Police Department is "fortunate to be alive." I beg to differ. Officer Kelly is alive because he trusted his instincts, employed his training, and had the mindset to win a split-second confrontation with Maurice Clemmons instead of becoming his fifth law enforcement victim. Kelly's will-to-win mindset is one that all officers can learn from ... Full column
