P-1 Member Feedback: Insight into tactics shown in news photo & tactical search reminders
In the last PoliceOne Newsletter the Associated Press photograph shown below, which accompanied an AP News story, drew insightful comment from PoliceOne Member Sgt. Mary J. Palka, an academy instructor with U.S. Capitol Police (WA).
The image, which reflects an officer searching a suspect against a car, served as an opportunity for Sgt. Palka to share step-by-step guidance on safer search tactics in an effort to help other officers learn from the potentially dangerous tactics illustrated in the image.
