  • BUG (Back Up Gun) Follow Up

    By Frank Borelli - Thursday February 13, 2014
    Almost a month ago now I wrote a blog entry about this poll regarding Back Up Guns or BUGs.  At that time the poll results, with exactly 100 votes, showed a prohibition rate of 18% with 2% of the votes saying, “No; but what they don’t know...
  • Three Minutes Late...

    By Frank Borelli - Monday February 10, 2014
    How many times have you shown up late to roll call?  Or late for a meeting? Or late to training?  We’ve all done it.  Sometimes circumstances get the best of us and we simply can’t do anything about it.  Then there’s the guy who shows up...
  • 2014: The Year of the Tactical Beard

    - Wednesday January 22, 2014
    Way back about two decades ago… yeah, the early 1990s… you weren’t “tactical” unless you were wearing Royal Robbins pants.  Remember those? The break through clothing item that catapulted 5.11 Tactical into the law enforcement market in a big...

    By Frank Borelli - Wednesday December 18, 2013
    It’s that time of year again folks, but this year we have a HUGE difference to take into consideration: so far (as of 12/10/13 @ 1130 eastern) we have lost 96 officers to line of duty deaths this year.  96!!  This is the first years for as long as I...
  • Off-Duty and CONCEALED Carry

    Be advised: There is a political theme in this blog posting that is both pro-police and pro-gun.  The pro-gun opinions stated are my own and don’t necessarily reflect those of Cygnus Business Media, the Cygnus Law Enforcement team or
  • A Cop's Thanksgiving
