It Takes Two to Tango

Sep 16, 2015 in Defensive Tactics
By Tony Blauer

I can't fight apathy.  I can't fight politics. I can't fight the hate on the street. What I can do is help you see the fight differently and prepare differently.  We are offering a free slot to any officer who signs up with a colleague! We are matching you or your department, one for one. I wish I could do more. If I could offer the training for FREE, I would. But this is our best effort to double the amount of officers able to get train... Full Article »

[caption id="attachment_6197" align="alignright" width="300"] CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO.[/caption]This video has gone viral. I wish I were a fly on the wall in every department, squad car, bar and office listening to people criticize the city, the training department, armchair quarterback on what these officers should’ve done. I can only imagine the comments: “I would’ve done this move when that punch was throw …” Or: “Why di...

Scenario Trainer’s Summit

Jun 17, 2015 in Uncategorized
By Calibre Press

"There is no 'nice' way to arrest a potentially dangerous, combative suspect. The police are our bodyguards, our hired fists, batons and guns. We pay them to do our dirty work of protecting us, the work we're too afraid, too unskilled or too civilized to do ourselves.

How Did We Get Here?

May 19, 2015 in Defensive Tactics & Law Enforcement Today & Leadership
By Rick Randolph

During a fight with the cops, bad guys don't worry about techniques and tools most of the time. They go for broke, and they win or they lose. And too often, we see cops doing the same--cops who keep pulling the trigger on an electronic-control device or keep swinging the baton or twisting that control hold, even though it isn't working. It’s ineffective and often leads to higher levels of force. We, as a profession, seem to get focused on the ... Full Article »

RESPONSE-ABILITY, adverb: One’s ability to respond. Police work has always been dangerous. But now, right now, is the most dangerous time to be a police officer. It’s not just bad-guys in the street. It’s far more insidious. Never before has there been so much disrespect for the thin blue line. From race-baiting politicians and the subsequent violent protests to the pathetic news media manipulating headlines the brazen behavior of the pun... Full Article »
