Winning A Gunfight
Last month Blue Watch was contacted by the Richland, Washington Police Department. They heard we were giving copies of the book to officers who had been involved in shootings and wanted copies for their department. Earlier this year, one of their officers was involved in an armed confrontation with a suspect.
Additionally, five copies were delivered to Adam Schniper, Zone G Regional Coordinator of the Alabama Law Enforcement Alliance and Peer Support (ALLEAPS). Zone G is comprised of Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Calhoun, Clay, Cleburne, and Randolph counties. These books will be used by team members when they respond to officer-involved shootings.
Anytime there is an officer-involved shooting, Blue Watch will send copies of “Winning A Gunfight”, to any department. “Winning A Gunfight” was written by retired San Antonio Police Department sergeant and now ordained pastor Tim Rupp. Tim addresses the emotional and spiritual aspects of gunfights. This is a must read for any officer that has ever been involved in an officer-involved shooting.
If you or someone you know has been involved in a gun battle and would like a copy of the book, let us know. We will send you a copy at no charge. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We Want to Hear From You!
Blue Watch is here to serve you – the law enforcement community and your families. We want to hear from you because we want to offer services that you need and want. Email us at email@example.com.
The people of Alabama support their officers and they stand ready to help.
There are many ways to support the Blue Watch mission:
- Pray – we need prayer warriors who will pray for us on an ongoing basis and at special events.
- Volunteer – we are in need of people who will help manage our website, social media and other aspects of the ministry. If the mission of Blue Watch is of interest to you and you have a skillset to offer, consider Blue Watch.
- Donate – it takes money to make all of this happen. The Lord greatly blessed us in 2020, but to continue our progress will require increased giving. You can give online or by check.
If any of these are of interest to you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
