  No one knows better the danger that a tense circumstance can present than police in the United States. Constantly under pressure to control people who are guaranteed rights that provide them a wide latitude of no control, the scenarios that citizens can present range from the mundane to sheer terror, even for a trained professional. With that thought, we continue to reflect on moments in the...

Quartermaster Work | Bulk Entry & Removal of Equipment

By: CaseGuard

  Quartermasters can have a complicated job when it comes to receiving equipment. Sometimes the shipments come in waves, other times they come one right after the other, and even still there can be times where they don’t arrive when they’re supposed to, leaving them with a void in their pre-determined workflow.

If you’...

And there can be an especially difficult decision made by officers about their role when they arrive on a scene, and there is no immediate activity taking place. This is likely...
