 Tip: Lock up all of your gear while off duty
 Video: Rural Dallas chase ends in wet ditch
Week 520 - Dec. 15, 2010
Dear PoliceOne Member,

Today we report on a young woman who helped an officer engage in a deadly struggle with a suspect during a traffic stop. In coming weeks, we’ll feature another excellent article from P1 Columnist Pat Novesky on the dangers of rural policing, where backup is usually 20 minutes — not two — from the fight.

Meanwhile, we encourage you to refer to this feature by P1 Columnist Dan Marcou, who offers practical advice on enlisting the aid of those "would-be warriors in waiting."

Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne Senior Editor
