Riots are Less Common, Less Deadly — and Still an Ever-Present Threat

Riots and other jailhouse violence have seen a significant drop in recent decades, this despite an ever-growing number of inmates. Though today’s riots tend to be shorter and less harmful than the deadly takeovers of the past, the threat still looms for correctional facilities, their staff, and inmates who do not engage in riots — making awareness integral to the safety of all involved.

Should High Schools Teach Students How to Interact With Police?

In Texas, lawmakers recently passed a bill requiring high schools to teach their students how to interact with law enforcement. Similar measures may soon pass in New Jersey, and other states have passed laws adding traffic stop instruction to their driver’s education courses. While proponents of the courses say they are designed to inform students of their rights and increase the safety of law enforcement encounters, others contemplate whether the message is the right one.

Cross Training: The Risks and Rewards of Consolidating First Responder Skills

As those who work within the fire, law enforcement, and EMS fields know, there is very little middle ground between those who favor cross training—often referred to as “consolidation,” or the act of training one professional group with some combination of the other two groups’ skills—and those who oppose it. Voices on both sides of this debate make cogent points. Though the practice has recently come into vogue as a cost-cutting measure, communities may also utilize it as a talent- or staffing-optimization tool, among other uses. However, several potential risk factors and the need for a highly tailored deployment make initial success anything but guaranteed.
