Feedback Requested: EMT-B Class with Tactical Focus

WTA Instructor, John Mack (Illinois Sate Police), is trying to put together an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)-B course to be held at Malcolm X College in Chicago.

The course will cover the usual EMT curriculum but will be geared toward the tactical officer and/or tactical application of emergency medicine.

A lot of my friends have the lights but haven't taken the class on how to properly use it. To my surprise I was taught not to use your trigger finger to… Continue

Knives.

I've noticed that every cop carries a knife; I've seen every shape and size, automatic, spring assist, fixed blade, etc. One thing that amazes me is the majority of pocket knives that cops carry have to be turned around before they can be opened.  What sense does that make?  That's okay if it is the knife you use as a tool, but if it is the knife you'll go to when your pistol is out of play, really bad things are happening.  If your Oh $hit knife has to be reversed in your hand before you can… Continue

Boots?

What is going on with Boots? One of the most important things about my uniform which I have spent countless hours researching is the boots I put on my feet every day to hit the streets. I have purchased boots for numerous reasons, because they are waterproof, insulated, have a knife attached, or simply because they look cool. Im am SOOO tired of wasting my time and money. I need something lightweight, durable, and most importantly comfortable. Wish I could wear gym shoes with my uniform but…
