About the Event

Remember when you first began this job…You would have done it for free! Same clientele as when they first began…same less than perfect leadership now as then…Often more officers choose to take their own lives than die in the line of duty from felonious gunfire…Why? Evil is real…it has a plan to defeat you…

“The skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible…” —Sun Tzu

By examining the battle strategies identified by a highly revered ancient warrior named Sun Tzu, we can identify vulnerabilities in the profession and with them, preventative strategies that can make all the difference in helping officers develop resiliency before a crisis develops.
