The Long Road Back to Support for the Police

By Chief Joel F. Shults, Ed.D In 2019 I wrote a year-end review piece in another publication asking if antagonism toward the police would subside.

Do You Know Who I Am?

By Steve Pomper Traffic stop, Las Vegas, Nevada “Do you know who I am?” Do you know how often police officers hear this challenge?
