EPISODE 121

Training: THE GOOD,
THE BAD AND THE DANGEROUS 

Sep 15, 2022 | Podcast

Young Football Player and SWAT police officer father, helmet to helmet

In a crossover episode of Tactical Tangents, Mike sits down with Danimal of The Thin Brewed Line to talk about setting up a training program to keep officers alive on the streets…and in the training environment. In a dangerous profession, the danger shouldn’t be coming from inside the program!  

Inspired by a tragic story of another preventable training fatality, Mike and Dan go over what’s needed to build a training program that resists complacency and challenges officers with pressure tested scenarios while avoiding the dreaded mindset of “It can never happen here!” Training to be adaptable, getting buy-in for quality training from superiors, and building a sustainable program that can be passed on to the next generation are all covered in this wide-ranging discussion.
