  1. Thank you Chief Couper for the copy of *Arrested Development*. Congratulations on your 600th post.

    I read all and use many of your posts for my research in preparation for the Calif. POST Executive Development Course. The 2 week course is offered to police chiefs, sheriffs, DAs, captains, and lieutenants throughout Calif. I spend 8 hours discussing relationships and roles of the police, various models of policing, strategic planning for law enforcement, the value and need for crime analysis, and critical incident management. That’s a full day!

    I’ve spent a career teaching and promoting COPPS throughout the U.S. and in many foreign countries. We are in challenging, but exciting time for our profession. I’m blessed to remain a part of our ongoing professional growth.

    Keep up the good work David!!
