Training Our Community Guardians


We believe the principles and tactics developed to help police officers in their daily responses to incidents can be effective in resolving  Active Assailant/mass casualty events.  By making tactics and decision making similar across the critical incident spectrum, officers will better learn, internalize and demonstrate those skills when it counts. Increased proficiency means an improved service to the community. Our human-centered, principle based police training will develop confidence in new and veteran officers, and increase competency, skills, and abilities. Confident officers perform better, and increase the public trust and improve community relationships.
