Law enforcement's response to critical incidents is unique to the incident at hand. Our aim is to be well-prepared through comprehensive training, strategizing and practice in order to tackle a wide range of potential scenarios. There have been outstanding instances where these efforts have successfully converged, with acts of bravery playing a pivotal role in officers confronting active shooters to neutralize the threat and protect lives. Regrettably, there have also been cases where outcomes did not align with our intentions. How can we ensure a consistently effective response across all aspects of preparation, strategy and execution?

Top quotes from this episode
Our job is not to second guess what people have done in the past. I think our job is to learn from the good and learn from the bad and to take those things and put those things into practice."
Good people stopping bad people is always what it is going to come down to. Making sure that mindset is there, the training is followed and then the equipment behind that. If you can get all those things lined up in an agency, that is key."
