Are your skills sharp enough to save your life?
How often do you train? Most officers will visit a gun range every once in awhile. Physical tactics? Just when they are required to. Both of these are highly perishable skills. They require consistent practice to keep them functional in a real situation.
Finances get in the way of training too. The department officers some training but to go outside and get instruction or practice you have to cut back somewhere else in your life.
This is why we started Serve to Protect as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. All of the training we provide is 100% free for the officer and department. You dedicate your professional life to serving your community. This is our way of serving.
