Cowboy Up  

June 30, 2014

John Wayne knew the canyon was dangerous and was ready. Our ambushes occur in a modern-day canyon of houses, vehicles, and woods, and we also need to have the Duke's "always prepared" mindset.

Get Ready for a Fight  

June 26, 2014

Your defensive tactics training should be intense, exhausting, applicable, and eye-opening. Don't come to in-service training dressed for vacation or expecting to sleepwalk through the course.

Hemorrhage Control  

June 23, 2014

Officer Joshua Burns might have bled out and died if it wasn't for a new emergency medical program that the Dallas PD had implemented just weeks before he was shot.

May 2, 2014
