Dear PoliceOne Member,

In today’s news is an item about Auxiliary Police Lieutenant Dan Kromer of the Taylor (Mich.) Police Department, who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kromer's family and fellow officers.

In honor of Kromer's memory and in hope we can prevent such incidents in the future, we've included a link in that news item to the recent reminders about roadside dangers from PoliceOne Columnist Travis Yates.

Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne Senior Editor

Detention and reasonable suspicion
By Ed Flosi, PoliceOne Contributor
Unless consent is given, an officer may only pat/frisk a person if there is reasonable suspicion that the suspect is armed and dangerous. It can’t be based on a mere hunch, or even an educated guess ... The 4th Amendment
Tactical Tip
Don't overlook the trunk
Keep an eye out for signs that the trunk may be open a crack and continue to glance at it looking for even the slightest movement. When you walk past the trunk, push on it to make sure it’s closed ... Ambush may await you
