Editor's Note:

We herald in a new year with the objective of delivering news that demonstrates that cops are better armed, armored, and able to carry out their duties on patrol. However, we've already had headlines that show an uphill slog for cops, like word from Chicago that that the city is contemplating the elimination of entrance exams.

What do you see as the top challenges facing officers this year? E-mail us your comments.
