After penning nearly 400 Force Science News articles, long-time editor in chief, Charles Remsberg, has retired. Although Mr. Remsberg is no longer a formal member of the Force Science team, the Remsberg classroom, located in the Force Science Institute’s Chicago office, will continue to commemorate his immeasurable contributions.
Many of you know Mr. Remsberg and his then-professional partner, Dennis Anderson, as creators of the most influential police training books ever published; Street Survival, The Tactical Edge, and Tactics for Criminal Patrol. Together, Anderson and Remsberg founded Calibre Press and its world-renowned Street Survival Seminar. Fans will recognize Mr. Remsberg as the author of Blood Lessons and recent co-author of the highly acclaimed Street Survival II.
Mr. Remsberg is one of the most influential forces behind modern officer safety training and education. Even so, you’d be forgiven if you didn’t recognize him or know the enormity of his contributions. That’s because Mr. Remsberg has been stewarding the police profession with little interest in highlighting his personal profile. Instead, he’s been using his award-winning journalism skills as a vehicle through which police experts, attorneys, researchers, and scholars could share, test, and learn from their collective experience. Mr. Remsberg provided the profession a voice. Street Survival II cited to nearly 100 police experts. There, he didn’t just give the profession a voice, he provided the megaphone!
Charles Remsberg’s retirement as the editor in chief of the Force Science News means he’s retired from relentless deadlines and persistent obligations. But he has not retired from his friends, his colleagues, or his profession. Fortunately, Mr. Remsberg’s influence will continue to be felt across our profession as he has agreed to assist with special projects. But, for the time being, he will be enjoying a well-earned break from deadlines.
Dr. Bill Lewinski, Executive Director of the Force Science Institute, is immensely grateful to Mr. Remsberg for his lasting contributions. Comments to Mr. Remsberg are welcomed at firstname.lastname@example.org
