IT IS 2015 – DOES YOUR TRAINING REFLECT THAT?
The year is 2015 and the 21st century law enforcement model is fluid and dynamic. What you learned or how you trained 15, 10 or even 5 years ago may not be enough to fulfill your duties today. How can you be sure that you are on point with your training and tactics?

This problem is not new to law enforcement, however the plausible deniability of “maintaining a minimum standard” may be starting to lose ground in the courts and with the public. At times we are our own worst enemy.

Like it or not, our actions are scrutinized far more than any other profession in public service. There are some things we can do to prepare for a media or public frenzy that loves to come raining down on us with an arm chair -quarterback review of our split second decisions.

Firearms If you do not have that weapon out at least 5 to 6 times a year, spending time shooting, cleaning, reloading it, malfunction and clearing it, you don’t have enough time on it. Pulling it out on your anniversary and putting 50 rounds in a static draw and fire paper target qualification is not firearms training.

IN MEMORIAM: TROOPER TREVOR CASPER
Trooper Trevor Casper was shot and killed in Fond du Lac while attempting to apprehend a bank robbery and murder suspect.
The subject was believed to have robbed a bank in Wausaukee approximately four hours earlier. Approximately one hour after the bank robbery the suspect abandoned the vehicle he was driving, murdered a citizen, and stole a second vehicle in Marinette County.
Trooper Casper located the second vehicle as it was being driven through Fond du Lac and began following it. The vehicle stopped near the intersection of U.S. 41 and West Johnson Street and the man opened fire on Trooper Casper. Trooper Casper returned fire and both he and the subject were killed.
Trooper Casper had graduated from the police academy only three months prior to the incident. He is survived by his parents and two sisters.
Trooper Trevor Casper-gone, but never forgotten.

HERE TODAY….GONE TOMORROW....UNPREDICTABLE
My wife Sara tells me that I’m not allowed to die until I am 85 years old. I took my eyes off the television and looked at her. She had tears coming down her face. I looked at her and said “Yes Honey”. She is the boss! We were watching the news about officers from our area being shot. Thankfully they survived. In Minnesota, where I live, we have had our share of officers being killed. It’s one of the worst feelings you can have when you get news of it. I don’t think we can all understand the emotions that this could have on those who are affected directly. The husbands and wives that worry about their loved ones as they go to work. Your friends and partners that have been killed in the line of work. I can see the emotions in my wife’s eyes. I tell her “I will do my very best to make it home to you, Lance (13), and Paige (17 Months).” Everything is unpredictable in the law enforcement career. I then started thinking about law enforcement altogether. I open my laptop and post a status about it.
