During the past few years, there has been
an emerging trend in felonious officer
deaths as a result of ambush confrontations with
armed individuals. From Dallas to Philly, Florida to
New York, law enforcement officers face the threat
of someone opening fire as they arrive at a call or
when they are sitting in the patrol car writing a
report. Not every law enforcement encounter
involves an officer involved shooting and no officer
is totally immune to ambushes. Officer must train
to be alert and sharpen their situational awareness
skills on and off duty. With the increasing
proportion of police murders being classified as ambushes, education must include skills developed from lessons learned in the field. Officers must be prepared for the unexpected.
There are generally four factors that define an ambush assault:

The importance of your distance and the speed you approach each call.
The importance of hands-on training: Beginning at the academy and throughout an officer's career.
Preparing for the aftermath: Dealing with the mental and physical toll on the mind and body.
