This issue features articles which focus on crowd management.
The theme of this issue is crowd management. This issue contains two feature articles: 1) Crowd Management: Adopting a New Paradigm, which discusses how police leadership must share lessons learned and incorporates best practices into crowd management philosophy, training, and tactics; and 2) Picketers, Protesters, and Police: The First Amendment and Investigative Activity which explores how agencies must fulfill their missions by ensuring that citizens continue to enjoy their rich, well-protected first amendment rights. Five regular departments provide additional informative articles: Perspective: Detecting Deception, Leadership Spotlight: Change Can Be a Slippery Slope, Focus on Ethics: The Power of Police Civility, a ViCAP Alert on missing person, Crist Nelson Dauberman, Sr., and a Notable Speech called, "Honor of the Badge." A special note announces the new online initiative for the magazine.
