Event description



Kansas CPOST. Certified for 16 hours of continuing education.

Law enforcement is under siege. Ambush attacks against the police have tripled since 2014, and are the leading cause of felonious death for police in the nation. Around the country, officers have been gunned down while picking their kids up from school, eating in restaurants and during routine patrols.

The current mantra of Getting off the X or keeping your head on a swivel isn’t going to cut it. Our officers deserve a system that trains them to move in a way to protect them from attack - as they outmaneuver and neutralize the threat. That system must be simple and easy to understand. Above all, it must be effective. That system is here.

The Counter-Ambush Tactics for Patrol Officers course is will equip patrol officers with the life-saving knowledge of true counter-ambush tactics.

Through lecture, recent case studies and active training drills, the course covers:

Strategy & Concepts

· Elements and different types of ambushes

· Threat recognition and attack pre-cursors

· Beyond OODA Loop and color codes: How to do awareness

· Case studies: officers who survived attacks, & those who did not

· Responding to near and far ambushes

· Dealing with single vs. multiple threats

Training Methodology & Drills

· Individual movement techniques

· Counter-ambush tactics in teams of 2, 3 and 4

· Vehicle deployments

· Officer down and extraction drills

· Engaging static and mobile threats

· Close quarters scenarios


Here's what officers are saying:
