Rising through the ranks
In the back of every officer’s mind there is the idea that they’ll one day run the department. This is a good thing. The question is, “How do you prepare for the promotion that you’ll need in order to get to that exalted position?” Personally, I always thought that the three parts of the promotional process were the officer, the test, and the politics.

Comment of the Week

"Next time you shoot someone, make sure you calmly walk towards him/her, say you're very concerned about their injuries and hold their hand while the ambulance arrives. Always put your gun back in the holster, especially when they complain they've been shot. Remember: suspects always tell the truth! And of course: forget they just tried to kill you."
