WASHINGTON — The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund will be holding its Law Enforcement Officers Firearms Survival Summit on Jan. 31, 2023, for first responders to gain valuable knowledge on survival resources that could mean the difference between life and death.
The full-day event will feature ATF Director Steven Dettelbach as keynote speaker with remarks by Bristol (Conn.) Police Chief Brian Gould, whose department recently lost officers in an ambush attack.
Statistical data from NLEOMF’s mid-year and end-of-year Law Enforcement Officers' Fatalities Reports will also be reviewed and analyzed to uncover new tools, preventative resources, innovative training and technologies available to promote officer safety. There will be training focused on lifesaving firearm options and ambush survival solutions.
The summit can be attended in person at the National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C., or virtually via live stream. Registration is required for both options.
