Instilling Positive Expectations  

April 3, 2013

I have discovered that a trainer has an incredibly powerful role to play in imbuing the trainee with either positive or negative expectations. And our profession demands that we hone skills essential for victory in confrontations.

Death Benefits  

March 21, 2013

Rethinking Active Shooter Response  

February 25, 2013

Police and PTSD  

February 22, 2013

The Bulge in Blue  

January 25, 2013

The plan here is to introduce a Monday-Wednesday-Friday exercise regimen that is unique, fast (sub-30 minutes each), and cheap.

Off-Duty Tactics for Street and Home  

January 23, 2013
