Dear PoliceOne Member,

It gives me great pleasure to introduce the newest addition to the PoliceOne roster of writers — the incomparable Val Van Brocklin. I first met Val (via phone) about two weeks into my time here at P1, and over the years since then we've been intermittently in touch on a variety of shared interests and ideas. Now that she's squarely on board, Val's monthly column will appear on the third Wednesday of every month, and cover a broad spectrum of law enforcement topics — from off-duty fun to street-smart success strategies for cops. Welcome to the PoliceOne family, Val. Let's do some good!
