  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...

It is also a very invasive action, as the law enforcement officer participating in the execution of the search warrant will be searching the private property of another citizen. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution reads: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses...

Interviewing Child Witnesses

Interviewing Child Witnesses

By: CaseGuard

  Law Enforcement Officers would give anything to keep a child from witnessing a crime or other traumatic event.

History Reports | Quartermaster Best Friend

By: CaseGuard

  Quartermaster’s are accountable for a lot of equipment, and a lot of scenarios involving their misuse, abuse, misappropriation, damage, you name it, the quartermaster will ultimately have to explain to someone at some point. It’s not necessarily fair, it’s not necessarily justified, but someone has to be stoic in the room, and when it comes to equipment, it falls on the quartermaster. One tool...

Audit Preparation | How Software Should Make It Stress-Free

By: CaseGuard

  It’s that time of year again: audit season. It seems every time the trees shed their leaves for the last time, and the weather begins its frigid descent, we find ourselves tucked inside our offices, preparing reports and inventories ahead of our respective audits. And every year it seems like there is more and more paperwork to go through, review, and compile. More and more, we’re being asked...
