Dear PoliceOne Member,

Every December we celebrate a variety of things, from religious observances like Christmas and Hanukkah to the turning of a New Year and the opportunities which lie ahead. As we have done in years past, we’ll be featuring a handful of columns and special year-end coverage in coming weeks, beginning with financial advice for 2012 from Ed Stephens.

December is also melancholy, as we remember those who have fallen in the line of duty. Everyone does this in their own way, but one thing we like to bring attention to is Project Blue Light, an effort by our friends at Concerns of Police Survivors.

Militarization, professionalism, and the balance of persuasion and force
By Fred Leland and Alex Olesker
The term "militarization" is often used when there is a perception that force has gone too far, such as in the recent UC Davis pepper spray incident. Yet there is nothing military-like about mismanaging force, and we do not train our service members to harm civilians. Consider the "why?"
