Learn From Their Experience: 8 Videos You Need to Watch

Kendra Weikman | PoliceLink

“What If?” Two little words that could be the difference between returning home after your shift or not. As department trainings evolve, it’s important to assess previous experiences and break them down.

While watching the following videos, ask yourself these questions:

1) What was the cause?

2) Were the officer’s actions appropriate?

3) Would you have done things different? If so, then how?

Be safe out there and always watch your six

    Good work for the officer that worked together as a team that would have been in video 5. It is so important to work as a team so no gets hurt or worst.

    Video #5 strikes me for how well the three officers worked together as a team. If they didn't work together well as a team, there'd be a couple of dead LEOs right there.

    It also highlights the extreme perils of rural policing.

    The David Arroyo one in court, they forget to mention in all the videos of this case study that before David starting shooting at baliff's and Deputies he killed another civilian outside the courthouse who had a CCL and died a hero trying to shoot David with his CCW a .45 but David had a bullet proof vest on and killed the civilian. He needs to be remembered as well. All these video I've seen, all need to stay alert and safe out there.

    MY Guys in Ga. did a good, The Ga. POST has a great officer training program, a real shoot house and a seminition live fire that will have you dreaming for weeks, a mini 14 or a bitch would have helped,and a contact and cover technique would have been better. Its a young mans fight so work hit the gym big boy , but a job well done!
