Language warning! In an earlier episode, we had our buddy Isaac on the show who was getting ready to start the police academy. Isaac graduated the academy and is now a sworn officer in the middle of field training, and he’s checking in with us to share some lessons learned. He’s going to talk to us about active shooter training and a shift in his thinking, away from gadgets and gear towards training and mindset (People, Ideas, Hardware–In that order!) and he’ll tell us about some dumb rookie mistakes he’s made. What challenges was he not expecting? What wasn’t on the brochure? We’ll also touch on the importance of being able to write a good report, which Jim talked about in this article. And of course, we still make fun of his mustache.
