  • Agreed. In the one case we had guys working for us that had family members in the affected department; in the other case it was just the guards that worked in the city where it happened. I would never personally wear a blue stripe one ( for the same reason I don't have a blue stripe American flag)...

    started a topic AEW wrestling

    AEW wrestling

    Not trying to plug these guys, but I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it takes a lot from WWE (including some of their stars and announcers), but it is different enough to be entertaining. Seems more acrobatic and a faster pace. It is geared to a younger audience but that's OK. If you like wrestling...

    started a topic Black band for badges protocol

    Black band for badges protocol

    Thankfully have not had to deal with this recently, but curious for future reference. I know security is not required to wear the black band over the badge when a police officer is slain; it appears to be a company by company policy. Two companies I worked for passed them out when a local officer...

  • I think what Enforcer means is the shirt got ripped in the scuffle. (I hope that's what he means.) I've seen it happen - we were assisting an LP who was struggling with a female suspect, and she deliberately wiggled out of her torn shirt to escape. LP (correctly) decided that chasing a half naked suspect...

  • Election update: Well, there is hope...sort of. Sawant is out, blaming her failure to win on Amazon and other big businesses throwing money into the city council races. The council didn't completely turn over, but at least a few new, rational candidates got elected.
    Sadly, in my county it...

  • Ah, firearms - the "third rail" issue of security and police forums. I will admit a small bias in regards to Glocks - when they first came out they were over hyped; I also think a lot of security guards favor them because the police do. (Not that its wrong, just that we may face different...

  • Wow - an incident from a decade ago. How times change. I will only address the original post - In Seattle, a squad of lawyers would have parachuted in and sued you and everyone in sight for discrimination, pain and emotional suffering.

    In Seattle, where gender is fluid, capitalism is a...

  • The trouble is jurisdictions in my neck of the woods aren't prosecuting for shoplifiting anymore except for crimes over $1000 or chronic repeat offenders. What I've seen lately is the LP asking for the merchandise back, but if it is just @ $100 or less they let the person go. (Or, if they can, grab...

  • Well, in that case...my kubaton. But seriously, its interesting Enforcer mentions the Ruger, because that's what I was looking at as my personal weapon. (I have to get my CCP renewed, but that's a pretty easy process.)

    Glocks (9mm) are the predominant choice here in Pacific NW for armed...

  • Analysis of the El Paso Walmart incident

    https://www.securitymagazine.com/blo...curity-failure

    Curious about opinions on this. I think in general his analysis is correct, but I see some issues. An automatic lock down system sounds good, but I'm curious if it would violate fire code, as well as having to make sure there are no...

  • Just an update - latest poll says 70% of Seattle voters are not satisfied with their city council members, only giving the council a 20% approval rating. 7 of 9 seats are open, although three of the current members are pretty safe in getting reelected, including the nutty socialist Sawant. I suspect...

    replied to Radios
    Standard Motorolas (4 channels) with a repeater. They'll also work without the repeater, you just have to be on the right channel. (A fact I wish I'd known during a power outage, when we lost the channel we were on - we started texting each other with status reports, because we assumed we had no radios...

    replied to Favorite Patrol Vehicle
    Toyota Tacoma, although it did have some electrical issues that I guess was a flaw for that year's model (since corrected, I've heard). Fairly comfortable ride, pretty rugged, and the perfect amount of room for hauling around equipment as needed. For a vehicle used over 16 hrs. a day every day, it...
