Editor's Note:

We welcome to our roster of writers Brian Willis, who began his law enforcement career with the Calgary Police Service in 1979. Brian's debut column is the latest in our collection of year-end articles that look to the past in order to prepare for what the future holds for law enforcement officers.

Brian will be writing about lessons learned from officers in a column called "If I knew then..." Be sure to check out his article today and e-mail him if you want to share your story.
