L aw enforcement Technology is your (dare we say favorite?) police trends maga- zine—with a spin. See, we're tirelessly sniffing out the new product and tech solutions for you to learn about and consider. We love trying to picture what gear will be indispensable to officers on the streets 1, 5 and 10 years into the future. This is where you'll find subject matter experts and North American LE pros bantering about how innovations like cloud data storage and enhanced boots might impact operation costs and quality of service. Be that as it may, we would be making a fatal mistake if we ever forgot about the body behind the body camera or the eyes looking out of the Google Glass. Because without you guys, any new technology is useless. It takes intelligence, courage and innovation to really be effective on patrol. Only empathetic and well-trained humans can earn trust and carry out a pledge to keep entire communities safe. Police Week—the week where we formally hon- ors law enforcement men and women killed in the line of duty—takes place every year in May at our nation's capital. We cover it in the July pages of LET to acknowledge the courage and service of the patri- otic men and women who choose to serve and who support those currently in service. At press time, our page 'Honoring the Fallen' section lists far too many men and women who paid the ultimate price: Kentucky State Police Trooper Eric k. Chrisman. Chehalis (Washington) Police Officer Rick Silva. New Orleans Officer Daryle Holloway. Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim. Montgomery Co. (Georgia) Sheriff Ladson O'Connor. Omaha (Nebraska) Police Officer Kerrie Orozco. Edmonton (Canada) Police Constable Daniel Woodall. The list goes on; we salute you all. In this month's issue you can read the first-hand account from Officer Chris Backhaus about his ride with the Chapter 8 Unity Tour to D.C. Head over to to continue reading his experiences from this year's trek. Who knows—it might inspire you to dust off the bike and start training in preparation for next year's ride! And while you're there, be sure to check out other pics captured at the riders' final destination in Judiciary Square: If you've never been to Police Week (as either rider, family member, tourist or participant) think about it. It's definitely a pilgrimage worth making and something you'll remember for the rest of your life. Hope you had a safe and happy Fourth!
