ASSOCIATION PERSPECTIVE

DOUG MULDOON

Here’s to a New Year and New Goals

DEAR FELLOW GRADUATES:

I

T SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY that I

was graduating from Session 153 of the National Academy on June 16, 1988. Since that time I have had the honor and privilege to serve the Florida Chapter as an area representative, was elected board member serving as president in 1998, and was appointed as the secretary treasurer in 1999. Then I discussed how I could further serve this outstanding association of professional law enforcement officers. I decided to run for Section 3 representative in 2005 when Florida hosted the FBINAA annual conference at Walt Disney World in Orlando. I also had the privilege of serving as a coconference chair with Rickey Ricks for this event. That conference brought many smiles to our members and their families. Over 3,200 people attended, with more than 500 being the children or grandchildren of our members. More importantly, the 2005 FBINAA conference underscored what we are all about: great world class training and the opportunity to further network amongst ourselves. This organization, bar none, is one where when you need assistance, whatever assistance it may be, you can reach out to a fellow NA graduate and obtain that help. And this assistance travels worldwide in our organization. The more important reality is you cannot buy your way into the FBINAA. You must attend the FBI National Academy and earn the privilege to become a member. In looking back over the time since I attended the National Academy I realize how much this organization has played a role in shaping my future. Professionally, it provided me the opportunity to use my training and contacts to help my agency and to also acquire the skills to continue to move through the ranks in my department and eventually become the chief of police. Personally, I find the contacts and lifetime friendships that I’ve made while attending annual conferences, local trainings, and social gatherings are irreplaceable and have become as important to my wife, Sue, and four daughters, who have also established many meaningful friendships. These professional contacts and friendships are unlike any others because of the FBINAA bond that we share and our willingness to help each other solve crime and become better professionals in our respective agencies. I can only tell you that my goal for 2013 is twofold. Over my

term on the board we have worked hard to become transparent and inclusive. You can see that over the past several years we have included members in all committees and programs such as the Youth Leadership Program so that each of you can be more a part of this great organization. I plan to continue in that vein and work to get our members active and involved in our association. After all, this association is all about you. My second goal is to work with our corporate partners. I have modified one of our committees to concentrate on the association’s public-private partnerships with an emphasis on generating more corporate partnerships and continuing to work hand in hand with our current partners. I also know that the FBINAA Foundation is continuing to grow and to assist our members in their times of need. Since its inception it has helped FBINAA members impacted by both life situations and several natural disasters. Your continued support of the Foundation is greatly appreciated. In November of 2013 the Foundation and your Association will host the first ever Human Trafficking Symposium in Ottawa, Canada. I hope to see many of you participate in this worldwide effort and show that by working together we can make a difference. I want to thank everyone for your support over the years and the confidence you have placed in me. And most importantly, thank you for your friendships. I look forward to working with you and the entire association board, who all have your best interests at heart. I wish you all a prosperous and healthy 2013. ■ F B I N A A Sincerely,

Doug Muldoon Doug Muldoon, 2013 President

ALASKA ★ The Alaska retrainer recently took place with nearly 80 law enforcement officers from local, state, and federal agencies in attendance.

DC The FBINAA DC Chapter held its Annual Summer picnic on Sep. 15, 2012 at Fort Hunt Park in Virginia.

All the children had a great time climbing all over the equipment and resources, especially the horses! Approximately a dozen current NA session attendees and 40 DC Chapter members attended the picnic and all had a great time. Former FBI WFO ADIC Jim McJunkin and his predecessor, former FBI WFO ADIC Joseph Perschini Jr., both attended the event. A special thanks goes to FBINAA

EMERGING TECHNOLOGY

THREATS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT

Jason Thomas and Katherine Sagona-Stophel

The future is already here—it’s just not evenly distributed. —William Gibson

L

AST SEPTEMBER the first live-Facebooking of a kidnapping occurred. In an office complex in downtown Pittsburgh, Klein Michael Thaxton allegedly took hostage the owner of CW Breitsman Associates, Charles Breitsman. For the next five hours, Thaxton posted updates to his Facebook account detailing his actions. “i cant take it no more im done bro,” said one post. “this life im livin rite now i dnt want anymore,” another post said. “ive lost everything and I aint gettin it back.” Contained within this one incident are the makings of emergent criminal behavior that law enforcement agencies will face in the coming years. For most Internet-savvy individuals, this comes as no surprise. For years criminals have used technology as a tool to cause mayhem. However, what makes the future unique in terms of how technology is used is that it simply is in more people’s hands. Technology has become democratized. Capabilities that were only available to governments and large corporations five years ago are now within reach of anyone with an iPhone. Internet users are increasingly realizing how much of their data is publicly exposed. Criminals and victims alike affected by cybercrime-related offenses have taken note of their information insecurities and are making stronger attempts to prevent further exposure of their information, legal or otherwise.

The question then is what we do about it. To reach a consensus on how to mitigate the problem, law enforcement must first understand the challenge. Let’s look at two threats: the hacktivist group Anonymous and the technology Tor. By doing so, we can shed light on the criminal privatization of technology and its threat to citizens, businesses, and national security.

Anonymous Most people understand Anonymous as a hacking group. Although there are splinter groups that hide under the umbrella of Anonymous, Anonymous members believe themselves to be a part of an idea, not a tangible group. This idea relates to a user’s right to privacy and freedom from government intervention on the Internet, known as net neutrality. Such beliefs are paradoxical because adherents to net neutrality wish to maintain anonymity but also advocate for extreme transparency within governments. The desire of Anonymous for privacy is sourced in its history in a message board called 4chan. A main feature of 4chan permitted users to post without signing into the site–4chan would simply claim the post was written by “anonymous.” This anonymizing ability enabled any user to detach his or her real identity from his or her post history. This lack of individual identity ultimately led to the site’s repertoire for vulgarity. Each post a user freely wrote went relatively unmonitored, leading 4chan to pride itself on claiming a reputation for offen-

siveness. The extent of 4chan’s vulgarity would not have existed were it not for its anonymous feature. 4chan’s passion for anonymity evolved into the well-known activist group now known as Anonymous, and its desire for online privacy continued to be paramount to its collective culture. Soon after its “founding,” Anomymous attacked the Church of Scientology, declaring “war” on the Church for its aggressive use of Internet censorship. Anonymous has launched international operations to allegedly promote its stance on protecting citizens. Splinter groups across the world use the Anonymous ideology to inspire attacks. Anonymous members who observe persecution for public social media posts, associated with Anonymous or not, are searching for innovative ways to launch attacks and, more importantly, find ways to keep themselves and their information private. One example is Tor.

What is Tor? The Onion Router (Tor), a software application, allows its users to browse the Web anonymously. Additionally, a portion of the Tor network known as Tor Hidden Services lets users publish Websites and other services anonymously. Tor distributes users’ online traffic throughout various relays, called nodes, on the Tor network. Each time a user visits a Website through Tor, the traffic travels through a different group of nodes using encrypted connections before it reaches its end destination. Through this randomized pathway, there is no single node that knows the entire path between

the user’s origin and destination, keeping a Tor user’s IP address and activity only known to the user.

.onion .onion is the top-level domain suffix for hidden services only reachable through using Tor. Since it is just as difficult to determine who is either hosting or using a site, the .onion domain provides security for both the creator and user of hidden services, functionally allowing Tor users to set up Websites without worrying about censorship or tracking. It appears the most prevalent use of Tor Hidden Services on .onion comes from commerce Websites that allow for the buying and selling of illicit goods and services. This is followed by discussion/ instant messaging (IM) services and Bitcoin (virtual currency) services. Another large portion of users of Tor Hidden Services is devoted to trafficking in child pornography.

Commercial Transactions Tor Hidden Services allows access to online black and gray markets within Tor’s network and have existed for longer than the recently exposed Silk Road. These hidden markets allow users to

maintain a delicate balance between increasing sales of illicit material and maintaining anonymity. Finding links to more popular hidden markets is possible through moderate searching, but these links are normally set up to deter less motivated or less tech-savvy users from using their site. As the most publicly known hidden market, Silk Road’s creators believe all products should be available for sale regardless of legality. While various contraband and services are for sale, the largest market is for drugs. Silk Road takes a number of precautions to ensure safety for its consumers and vendors: • Those who are able to access a hidden Website are required to log in (emails are not required for registration, however). • Silk Road uses a tumbler system, creating dummy transactions in order to mask the true purchase. • Silk Road keeps a public domain page up pretending the site is down in order to deter less knowledgeable users. Another example of a hidden market on Tor is The Assassination Market. The Assassination Market advertises itself as a weapons and hitman marketplace. This is essentially a message board; hence, its credibility is consistently questioned by anonymous posters, and many times, communications on the site fail to establish any transactions. The most popular responses relate to weapons exchanges, and are usually followed by private chat requests.

Responding to the Challenge The emergence of criminal activity through private online interactions has created a set of challenges unique to the online environment. Many of us are aware of and deal with criminal activities on more public Websites such as CraigsList, but there is a much deeper and growing faction of online criminal activity that law enforcement will battle into the future. Technological breakthroughs like Tor, coupled with crowdsourced anonymized groups of people bent on causing disruption, are creating unprecedented problems. Add to that mix the pace at which technology increases and now we have a situation in which we cannot predict where or how fast a criminal threat can emerge. A fundamental shift in how we look at crime and its

occurrence in cyberspace needs to occur. We need not only an awareness of the problem but also financial and legislative solutions that support law enforcement’s ability to respond. In the end, knowing the problem and staying current with emerging technologies is a good first step. Further steps include awareness and education of staff through associations like the FBI National Academy Associates and the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Local law enforcement leaders can offer training and equip the current generation of law enforcement officers with the skills needed to work within this new environment. Partnering with state and federal investigators and private entities to gain intelligence on the topic of technology and cybercrime will only strengthen your force and match the fundamental shift occurring within criminal communities. ■ F B I N A A Jason Thomas is employed by Thomson Reuters Special Services as a senior strategic analyst and focuses on open source intelligence collection and analysis.

Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) Compliance Options for Law Enforcement Agencies Douglas R. Kane

THERE ARE MANY CHALLENGES facing law enforcement agencies in the 21st century. In addition to traditional policing issues now agencies must also be concerned with protecting sensitive data and providing e-mail communication security. The impending CJIS (Criminal Justice Information Services Division of the FBI) mandate, with a Department of Justice (DOJ) deadline of September 2013, requires public safety organizations to protect access to CJIS data regardless of the location from which it is requested. CJIS compliance requires the following: ★ Advanced login authentication consisting of two forms of approved authentication credentials, centrally managed by the agency network ★ Access control to sensitive data systems with a combination of criteria such as location, user’s role, and time of access ★ Secure password policies to authenticate user IDs While definitely attuned to the ongoing threats and hacking efforts to obtain sensitive data, DOJ’s revamped CJIS Security Policy raises the bar for protecting information security for any public agency whose personnel access criminal justice records. These security standards were designed to ensure appropriate measures are in place to protect CJIS information against unauthorized access and accidental loss. However, this mandate places the responsibility directly upon the agency for selection and procurement of specialty equipment and software to achieve compliance.

Finding the Right Solution IT IS IMPORTANT for agency and department executives to consider the available options for compliance with the CJIS mandate and the short- and long-term consequences when selecting the appropriate cyber-security solutions. Compatibility with existing infrastructure, operational effectiveness, initial cost, and any recurring costs must all be taken into consideration. Advanced authentication has been defined by DOJ to mean the use of credentials such as biometrics, smart cards, userbased public key infrastructure (PKI), software tokens, hardware tokens, or one-time passwords that provide for additional security to the typical login ID and user password. With this choice of options, executive management must decide what solutions are appropriate for their culture and which solutions best meet their operational needs. I have observed firsthand the career-ending consequences in both the private and public sector when appropriate steps are not taken to protect confidential and proprietary data. During fast-breaking situations, information is needed immediately and login credentials are frequently shared or admin credentials utilized, exposing the network to vulnerabilities or data compromise that may not surface until a later date. The importance of cyber security cannot be understated. Therefore, this

should be an opportunity for agencies to enhance their cyber security measures as they meet the impending CJIS mandate.

Biometric Authentication BIOMETRIC-BASED ADVANCED AUTHENTICATION is the leading solution for CJIS compliance. Available biometric solutions include equipment readers that scan a user’s fingerprints or retinas to authenticate access. A biometric system relies on something that cannot be lost, namely a fingerprint or retinal scan, which is unique to each individual. While retina scan equipment for mobile operational deployment scenarios may be functionally difficult, the use of a person’s fingerprint is comparatively easy. Great improvements have been made to the fingerprint readers that were available in the late 1990s, and today’s readers have proved to be resilient and highly functional. With no additional authentication equipment to issue or inventory, users can authenticate with their fingerprints during an onboarding process that can be done locally or pushed from the server side of the network. Once a user’s fingerprints have been uploaded, he or she can use any deployed biometric reader to authenticate and access the system. Portable readers can plug into a computer’s USB port or keyboards with biometric readers can be used by any authorized employee. The information is cached in an encrypted file on the server using AES256bit encryption. The server-based software uses Windows’ Active Directory to authenticate users and provide enhanced login capabilities that provide detailed reports for compliance reviews or audits. The audit trail irrefutably links identity with activities, not only for access to CJIS resources, but also for password management of other databases, files, and folders. Active Directory is used to manage users and devices and can be deployed to use laptops with pre-existing fingerprint readers. This type of biometric solution combines the benefits of single sign-on with enhanced security, making it user-friendly and an effective management tool. If users leave or are transferred, their licenses can be transferred to new or replacement employees since user licensing is a one-time cost assigned to the agency, not to an individual employee. In the event a deployed reader breaks, one-time access can be generated with system administrator authorization.

Alternate Compliance Options BY COMPARISON, Public Key technology (PKI) utilizes software certificates with both public and private key combinations. This solution is easy to deploy, as a certificate can be e-mailed to an end user. Once installed on a computer, the certificate does not need to be touched again, and can even be transferred and stored onto a storage device such as a USB “thumb” drive. One serious disadvantage to PKI is because they are comput-

sensitive items requiring inventory control and accountability. Lost, stolen, or damaged cards require the purchase and licensing of a new card. Smart cards usually require yearly subscription renewals and must be individually licensed. The use of a specific card cannot unequivocally be tied to an individual—if lost or stolen it still functions— nor can a smart card be remotely disabled. Another form of acceptable advanced authentication is electronic token devices. Tokens are commonly used in many industries, including the banking and health care industries. They are also used by the FBI as a form of advanced authentication for its personnel to access specific databases. Tokens come in many forms, including USB devices and smartphone applications that generate a time-based, one-time password to authenticate a user for access. While this solution offers strong and secure credentials, it is a productivity killer—users don’t like it—and it is vulnerable to compromise. RSA is the major manufacturer and technical support provider in this space. The company came under scrutiny in summer 2012 when its deployed code was cracked and token devices were compromised. Like smart cards, USB-based token devices can also be lost, requiring an equipment purchase and licensing of a new card. Application-based tokens alleviate the need for new equipment. However, the recurring costs for license renewals as well as the costs for server-based software solutions make tokens an expensive financial commitment to security. Lastly, as with smart cards, if the user forgets the token device or the smart phone application fails to launch, the computer system cannot be accessed. In the event that a computer system is lost or stolen with the token device attached, the computer and its protected programs are compromised and can be used by the individual possessing the device. As executive managers of law enforcement agencies face the deadline for meeting CJIS compliance requirements, a solution that encompasses technology legacy planning is imperative. Agencies that choose to deploy stop-gap or patchwork solutions will come to realize the additional cyber-security risks they face. These will increase exponentially as the focused efforts of hackers, popularized by Anonymous, become more rampant as they continue to take down computer networks and access sensitive information. While satisfying the CJIS requirements is important, they are only one facet of the plethora of cyber-security issues facing law enforcement. Careful assessment of available technology, measured by an agency’s ability to deploy an operationally viable solution, is critical. ■ F B I N A A

er files, certificates can and have been hacked. Since they are highly portable, they can be stolen and redeployed on a rogue machine or system. Additionally, the use of certificates does not prevent user login credentials from being hacked, meaning the system can be compromised from stolen or even shared credentials, essentially compromising the software certificate, even though the certificate itself is not touched. Whether they are stolen, lost, or otherwise compromised, compromised certificates are not disabled. Instead, certificates are reissued, which usually incurs additional fees to be charged to the agency. Smart Cards, which are similar in appearance to the proximity cards issued for access control, require a method to access the computer, which will in turn allow access to the network portal. These cards generally use the PCMCIA card slot on laptops, if the laptops are so equipped. Which points to a major drawback with the Smart Card system. If an agency fields computers without PCMCIA card slots, it will need to buy new computers that have the slot. Also, if the agency uses the PCMCIA slots on its computers for Internet access via aircards, it can’t use the slots for Smart Card verification. Some smart cards have USB-based card holders, thus alleviating the need for the PCMCIA card slot. In a mobile law enforcement setting, smart cards present significant complications in an operational environment. They are similar in size to a credit card and can be lost, stolen, or even forgotten prior to deploying to a mobile or field assignment, which means the computer system cannot be accessed. Additionally, because of their capability to provide access to sensitive information, Smart Cards should be considered

Convicted Felon SEAN AND I shared such similar career paths, but his life choices landed us on opposite sides of this table. I was now a police chief. Sean was now a felon convicted of prescription fraud and “doctor shopping.” Our paths had always intertwined, even in the worst moment of Sean’s career. I was serving as captain of operations when I had to field a call from another police agency informing me that Sean was “dirty.” It was me who had to tell the chief about the call. And the task of assigning Sean’s case to the internal affairs unit and ultimately seeing it through to conclusion also fell to me. “How did we get here?” was the question that I kept asking myself during those dark days. It’s a question that I still ask now that I am chief and Sean is a convicted felon.

Addiction HOTLINE

ERIC OLSEN

IT WAS CHRISTMAS EVE and across the table from me was one of my best friends, my former beat partner Sean Riley. Sean and I were police officers together, worked the streets together, enjoyed “choir practice” together, backed each other on life-threatening calls, and vented together after tragic, life-ending calls. Sean was a highly decorated police officer of almost 20 years. And so was I. It was my privilege to have spent my nearly 20-year career in

Sean’s Story

the units I loved, including patrol, gangs, SWAT, traffic, and professional standards. Along the way I had been promoted to sergeant, lieutenant, captain of operations, and on up the chain of command. I had also made many good friends. Sean was one of those good friends, but now he was no longer an officer. He was here to discuss with me a new program to help officers with addiction. Sean knows all about addiction and what it can do to a person with a badge.

SEAN’S WORDS best explain his addiction to prescription drugs and how it ended his career. “My journey began as always. I was a hard charger on the job and heavy drinker at choir practice with the boys. I was very well trained on how to always win and never trust. On the streets, trust will get you killed. “As my addiction progressed, I knew I would eventually fix it because I have never lost at anything in life. I faced death and danger. That goes with the job. Nothing scared me. I formed a tactical plan; I would beat my addiction on my own and win again. Little did I know that my addiction also had a plan that was strategically superior to my own. “My life started to spiral out of control. I held my crumbling self together on the job and always received excellent evaluations, but I began isolating myself and became a hypocrite in my private life. How could I help so many, yet be incapable of helping myself? “As my private life fell apart, the only thing that seemed to ease the pain was narcotic pain medication. This became my ‘beat partner,’ the one who always had my back and took care of me. “Then my addiction grew so out of control that I did something I never, ever thought I would do. I committed a crime. I was indicted by a federal grand jury for ‘doctor shopping.’ “For the first time in my life, I was defeated. The killer I was so focused on beating was not a felon on the street, it was addiction. I pleaded guilty, as I was.

It was time to stop being a hypocrite and deal with the real demon: me and my disease. I went to treatment and it was the greatest gift ever given to me. Without it, I would have committed suicide. “Having been clean and sober for almost seven years, life is far greater than I ever imagined it could be. I never could have accomplished this on my own. My new ‘beat partners’ are the tools, education, and awareness given to me in treatment. “Today, I am a husband, a father, a son, and a friend. I am also the executive director of Safe Call Now, a crisis line for police, fire, corrections personnel, and their family members nationwide. I still save lives. I just do it in a different way. I am blessed.”

Help Line THE VISION FOR SAFE CALL NOW was created on that cold Christmas Eve five years ago, while Sean and I were talking at that table. We wanted to create an organization where police officers could make a “safe call now” and reach out for help from other first responders who person-

ally knew what it meant to be tormented by the demons of addiction, suicidal thoughts, and other job-related stresses. The calls would be confidential and not subject to discovery by fellow officers or employers, so that making this call would not put the officers’ employment at risk. As a police chief, I liked the idea of caring for and healing officers in order to rehabilitate them and get them back to work. From Sean and I having that conversation, Safe Call Now has grown into a non-profit organization that has helped hundreds of public safety personnel. Safe Call Now’s mission is to provide a confidential, comprehensive, 24-hour crisis referral service for all public safety employees, all emergency services personnel, and their family members nationwide. We provide education, healthy

alternatives, and resources to save lives and put families back together again. Safe Call Now is committed to helping those in need. It is also fortunate to have dedicated partners like the FBI National Academy Associates, 5.11 Tactical, and Lexipol as supporters. However, this vision cannot be met without the assistance of police chiefs, sheriffs, and police administrators. As leaders in the law enforcement community, we must take care of our personnel, know the signs of addiction, and know how to seek help when it is needed. The first step to meeting this obligation as a leader is to visit the Safe Call Now Website, www.safecallnow.org, and learn about the resources available. Take time to read the inspiring stories of those whose lives have been changed, peruse the FAQs, and make a commitment to be involved in helping fellow officers in their time of need. ■ F B I N A A Eric Olsen is chief of police for the city of Kirkland, Wash., one of the founders of Safe Call Now, and an alumnus of the FBI National Academy, Session 194.

HOW TO USE POLICE

VEHICLE TESTS

R

on Derderian’s research toward choosing a new patrol car for Beverly Hills (Calif.) Police officers began with the police vehicle testing by the Michigan State Police and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Derderian, a special projects officer, says the first step in making the selection of the department’s new car was to attend the LASD’s annual testing. Visit-

ing the test site was invaluable, Derderian says. “We use the knowledge we gain at the test site as a guide to help us make educated, informed decisions on what sort of vehicles we’re going to purchase,” he explains. Further east, Sgt. Larry Poleski, the Grand Rapids (Mich.) Police Department’s fleet manager, attended the Michigan State Police’s evaluation of pursuit-rated vehicles. Like Derdarian, Poleski views the tests and subsequent

report as a starting point for selecting a new patrol car. “The state police emphasize a lot of performance-driven aspects for their vehicles,” Poleski says. “State troopers are looking at acceleration for highway driving. We look at a lot of different things.” Both Poleski and Derderian are preparing recommendations to higher-level commanders about the car the department should purchase—picking from a list that includes the Chevrolet Caprice

Each of these officers must consider a wide-ranging list of criteria such as acquisition cost, performance features, ergonomic aspects, officer safety features, geographic considerations, and fuel cost estimates. The annual tests give their departments, and many others, a performance baseline for benchmarking the vehicles.

★★★ MSP VS. LASD THE AGENCIES that test new model-year, pursuit-rated vehicles offer complementary evaluations and differing methodologies that give them equal weight among vehicle purchasers. Each September, the MSP’s Precision Driving Unit kicks off the vehicle evaluation season by testing sedans, SUVs, and motorcycles for acceleration, top speed, braking, ergonomics, and high-speed handling. The trials usually run for five days at the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea and the Grattan Raceway in Belding. The raceway is just 25 miles northeast of Grand Rapids. A month later, LASD deputies and Los Angeles Police Department officers test acceleration, braking, and highspeed handling on an interior track at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana,

Calif. A city pursuit course is also set up at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona. Both agencies have been testing police vehicles since 1974. The LASD took over from the LAPD, which began testing police vehicles in 1956. The Michigan and Southern California tests use a slightly different protocol. In Michigan, four troopers drive each car eight laps to measure acceleration and top speed. The cars are allowed a “cooling off” period between drivers. Later,

the vehicles undergo braking tests that measure a progressive stopping distance from 60 mph. In Southern California, four police drivers also take the cars out for laps of eight. However, drivers must switch in less than five minutes, which keeps the cars running hot for 32 laps. After this “heat soak,” the vehicles are then immediately taken for brake testing. As a result, rotors have been known to catch fire at these punishing tests. These tests also include a panic stop test, where

VEHICLE TEST drivers mash the brakes from 60 mph to a dead stop. The LASD report also includes fuel economy ratings that provide a more realistic estimate for a duty cycle than the retail estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency. Four deputies drive the vehicles 100 miles each on a city course that includes hilly terrain, flatlands, and traffic gridlock. The Michigan testing report includes a section that helps agencies choose a patrol vehicle. The LASD report offers subjective comments from officers about driving the vehicles. And the agencies use different technologies to capture their measurements. In Michigan, optical sensors attached to the vehicles pick up speed times, while in Southern California a GPS tracker box acquires data from inside the car.

ride-and-drive event at the LASD testing, and got behind the wheel of a pair of all-wheel-drive Ford Police Interceptor sedans—the 3.7-liter V-6 and the 3.5-liter V-6 twin turbo. He came away impressed. Attending the testing often kicks off an agency’s selection process, but agencies also have to pick cars that will perform best in their jurisdiction. With a population of 35,000 spread over 5.5 square miles Beverly Hills remains an affluent tight-knit community with 125 sworn officers and 60 vehicles. Fifty patrol officers drive 30 marked units. Because much of Beverly Hills features hills, mountains, and narrow roads, the department’s officers need a V-8-powered, rear-wheel-drive car for quick response from the southern flat-

serious consideration to Ford’s new vehicles because they offer an all-wheeldrive powertrain ideally suited to driving in icy or snowy conditions. The 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit will also offer an all-wheel-drive option. “That’s one of the considerations in Michigan, because we get hit with some heavy weather here,” he says. “We have had to rent Hummers to do patrol duties.” About 190,000 people live in Grand Rapids, which is overseen by 290 sworn officers. About 60 vehicles make up the marked enforcement vehicles. Poleski says his trip to the MSP vehicle testing gave him important insights into the practical aspects of the vehicles so he could make a better informed choice that meets the needs of Grand Rapids patrol officers and fits into the agency’s budget. “We do look at the performance,” Poleski says. “We have other considerations too, such as visibility and ergonomics. We have a lot of equipment that goes into the cars. We’re getting more equipment in our vehicles, and the cars are getting smaller.” Much of the equipment should transfer over once the agency purchases new trunk racks. The partitions will have to be replaced regardless of the vehicle chosen.

★★★ LOOKING FOR BALANCE TEST RESULTS from the new crop of patrol cars have validated the automakers’ efforts to deliver a post-Crown Vic-era car that provides officers with plenty of punch, high-speed capability, electronic stabilization, torque management; and with cockpits designed for officers. At this point, the initial shouts for more Ford Crown Vics have fallen to a low murmur. With plenty of quality choices, agencies are weighing all the options before choosing their new patrol cars. “It’s like shooting, where we look for speed and accuracy,” says Officer James McCarthy of the Gardena (Calif.) Police Department. “We’re looking for the perfect balance.” On Oct. 18, McCarthy attended Ford’s

The highest posted speed limit is 35 mph. “We don’t need a vehicle to reach speeds of over 100 mph,” Derderian says. “We’re more concerned with braking and handling.” Derderian has introduced Chevy’s V-8 Caprice into the Beverly Hills PD fleet of Ford CVPIs and Dodge Chargers. Detectives have begun evaluating the car and, assuming there are no serious problems, Derderian will begin purchasing more for patrol officers. While top speed and acceleration are important performance factors, agencies have begun looking closer at more practical features such as winter weather handling and whether police equipment can be repurposed from the retiring Crown Vics. In Grand Rapids, Poleski has given

LOCAL DEALERSHIPS can play an important role in the vehicle choices of smaller agencies because they can provide a test vehicle and maintenance support. Police Chief Patrick Callahan, who serves the small town of Hector, Minn., purchased a Chevy Caprice after evaluating it at a local dealership. “For the most part, it might come down to what works best maintenance wise,” Callahan says. “We have a Chevy dealer in town. We don’t have staff to maintain these vehicles so we need to rely on a dealership.” Callahan says he does read the testing reports as well. Neal Umberger, the Lexington (Ky.) Police Department’s police fleet liaison, attended the Michigan testing in 2011. The agency is now evaluating three Ford Police Interceptor test vehicles. “It’s not just speed, it’s the space in the car, the utilization of the trunk, and the installation of the equipment,” he says. “All of those factors go into choosing a vehicle. [The testing has] some influence on us, but it has a lot more to do with our budget.” ■ F B I N A A

MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAPLAIN

B I L LY G I B S O N

Strive for Sincere Prayer WHEN YOU PRAY, BE HONEST AND STAY TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE.

A

S WE BEGIN THE NEW YEAR, it is a time-honored tradition

for many of us to make a list of New Year’s resolutions. This list usually consists of a number of things we would like to accomplish during the New Year. Your list might also include things you have done that you don’t want to do anymore. Whatever you have on your list is a good start, as you are setting goals to be accomplished and that’s a positive way to begin a new year. In addition to your list of things to do or not to do, perhaps there are other things that simply need to be re-evaluated to see if you are on the right track. I would suggest that one of those things should be your prayer life. After all, prayer is how we communicate with our Heavenly Father. Without prayer, we simply cannot be connected or remain united with the Lord. Prayer is how we cleanse our hearts, renew our spirit, and share our innermost thoughts and concerns with almighty God. Prayer is an important element of life. A recent national survey revealed that 71 percent of all Americans say they pray at least once a week. While the numbers and frequency are important, they are not near as important as how and why we pray. When we pray we must be sure that our motives are sincere and pure. Unintentionally, many of us fail in this area of our prayer life, causing us to wonder if God is really listening or why our prayers seem to go unanswered. There can be many reasons for this feeling and I can assure you that frustration often finds itself at the top of the list. Jerry Rankin, former president of The International Mission Board, feels that much of our prayer life is too self-centered. He believes we do a lot of praying with a focus on what God ought to do to align Himself with our solution. Sincere prayer aligns us with God, not Him to us. Rankin states that prayer is not a legalistic discipline, but a relationship with God. With God, you plan together, share together, and walk through life together. I believe another weakness in people’s prayer life is that we have a tendency to attempt to pattern our prayers after others. We should never attempt to copy someone else’s prayer style. Matthew 6:5-6 reminds us, “When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father,

who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” I certainly understand that there are principles of prayer that apply to all of us, but your relationship with God is individual and that’s how He expects you to communicate with Him in prayer. We are all at different places in our walk with Him, we are all at different levels of spiritual maturity, and we all have different types of experiences in prayer. So when it comes to your prayer life, simply be yourself. Psalms 33:15 (NKJV) reminds us that “He fashions their hearts individually.” Learn to pray in your own distinctly personal way. In his book, “With Christ in the School of Prayer,” Andrew Murray writes that “we should develop a style of prayer that maximizes our relationship with God. He wants prayer to be an easy, natural, life-giving way of communicating as you share your heart with Him and allow Him to share His heart with you. Prayer is so simple; it is nothing more than talking to God and taking time to listen to what He has to say to you.” Never has there been a greater need for prayer than in our present time. We have suffered natural and manmade disasters throughout our country and throughout the world and continue to face many crises today. Allow me to remind you that through our prayers, crisis is an opportunity for God to work in our country, in our world, and in our lives. God is using crisis to turn our hearts to hope and security that only He can provide. May God bless you in your prayer life throughout the new year. ■ F B I N A A

Prayer is nothing more than talking to God and taking time to listen to Him.

Manual Resistance BUILDING STRENGTH WITH HELP FROM A PARTNER INSTEAD OF STANDARD GYM EQUIPMENT ADDS VARIETY TO PHYSICAL TRAINING PROGRAMS.

H

ERE AT QUANTICO, we are blessed to have a vast array of fitness equipment at our disposal to enhance our students’ learning. Whether it’s conventional barbells and dumbbells, or sometimes less familiar implements including kettlebells, TRX suspension trainers, and slide-boards, we believe in promoting athletic development by any means necessary. In some cases, it may feel like we’re overemphasizing the equipment rather than focusing on foundational training principles. This can lead some to feel like our program can only be implemented while attending the National Academy. This article will attempt to remedy that by highlighting manual resistance (MR) training. MR exercises are performed against resistance provided by a partner. Training with a partner has numerous benefits, and in this case a partner will provide additional variety and intensity, especially when equipment may be lacking.

between partners, consider pre-fatiguing the stronger of the two using a body weight exercise prior to applying the MR protocol. For example, if you have a strong upper body and can do a ton of push-ups, perform a set of super slow parallel dips and then immediately follow it up with some manual resistance pushups or floor presses. Implements: Commonly found household items such as towels, pipes, and wooden dowels can be used during MR exercise to simulate the gripping required during conventional barbell and dumbbell training. This is an excellent way to increase hand and forearm strength, an often neglected training component but one critical for the law enforcement officer. Manual resistance hammer curls with a towel will light those forearms up.
