2017_POLICE-WEEK2
May 2017 marks the 55th year by which our nation will pay tribute to the men and women of our local, state and federal peace officers. National Police Week is an annual event, conceived from “Police Day”, which was created in 1962, when President John F.

Watch Your 6

ccso car courthouse
It has been a rough journey down the law enforcement road recently. We have seen an increase in both successful and not-so-successful ambushes on police across this nation. War has been declared on Texas cops by the black lives matter idiots that don't actually have anything to do with the original intent for that moniker. I have needed to post something to membership for awhile, but like you I've had a hard time dealing with recent events so I w...

Enhancing teachers’ response to active threats

girlSchool
