Beating the High Cost of Training Ammo  

May 7, 2012

The high cost of ammo has police agencies scrambling for ways to cut their firearms training budgets while still maintaining standards.

Others are looking for ways to achieve the same training goals without sending ammo down range.

April 9, 2012

April 3, 2012

How we train is how we fight—or more broadly, how we perform under pressure. This also applies to helicopter pilots; how they train versus how they are expected to fly.

March 20, 2012

MMA practitioners commonly use choking techniques to defeat their opponents. The consequences of your being "choked out" or rendered unconscious are severe for officers. Learn how to defeat the rear naked choke and guillotine choke.

The Checklist  

March 12, 2012

I was recently reading how more and more professions are turning to checklists to improve safety. I have been advocating just this kind of practice for law enforcement for decades.

Handling DUI Stops  

February 17, 2012

There is a tendency to shy away from DUIs unless you are part of a specialty unit that deals with them all the time. But I think we can reverse this trend through understanding and training.

Defending Against Small Edged Weapons  

February 7, 2012
