Dear Police1 Member,

Just two months into 2021 and there have been two separate incidents where a child was used as a human shield against law enforcement officers. In both cases, officers resolved the situation with well-aimed shots demonstrating the value of police firearms training, mental preparation and access to the right equipment to resolve the threat at hand.

In today’s newsletter, Police1 columnist Pete Goode outlines the key takeaways from these incidents. Plus, Warren Wilson lists the tactical equipment investments every SWAT cop should make.
