A Message to the Media
08/30/14 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Until recently we have valued certain media relationships.  That value in our media relations has all but vanaished.  And it will take a lot to change that.  The way the news media as whole has shifted its agenda in recent months to portraying our profession as something it is not has strained our relationship with even those who have earned a level of trust with us.

Fairness? Objectivity? Truth? All Victims of Current Media Standards
08/22/14 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
With the Ferguson incident capturing the nation's attention there has been much justifiable anger expressed about the way this event is being reported.

The Law Enforcement Wife Challenge – A Powerful Story
08/20/14 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
There's a new challenge in town.

A Real Attorney’s Thoughts on the Ferguson, Missouri Incident
08/19/14 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
I thought that I had flushed the Ferguson situation out of my system with my last post, but a two hour flight gave me more time with my thoughts. I have purposefully remained silent over the last week because the facts of the case in Ferguson were still unclear, though the original accounts certainly seemed suspect.

The FOP - Where It All Began
07/22/14 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Next year will mark the 100th birthday of this nation's oldest representative police organization, the Fraternal Order of Police. In 1915, the life of a policeman was bleak. In many communities they were forced to work 12 or more hours a day, 365 days a year with little if any time off, for very little pay and no voice in their profession.  Police officers didn't like it, but there was little they could do to change their working conditions.
