Full disclosure: I’ve known Jim Fountain for 20 years and reviewed an early version of this book. Also l am not law enforcement.
Unlike many gun training gurus who have never seen the elephant, Jim is the real deal as a police officer, soldier, and firearms instructor. His book contains the hard won knowledge of his years as a LAPD officer.
I am not a LEO so much of the information on police activities I can not personally address. His section on firearms is dead nuts on.
If you are new to law enforcement this book will provide the training you should have gotten at the academy but didn’t. Reading it could save your life.
Great book. User friendly information for the law enforcement community and those like me who want to understand how to be safer. This really helped me know what to do to keep myself and those I am responsible for at school safer. The active shooter section is especially timely and crucial. Thank you, Jim.
In reading different chapters in this book, I found I wasn’t aware of what officers had to be beware of in the training they have to go through. In traffic stops, how many variables a single person in a vehicle or with several people in the vehicle just to keep the officers safe. I am joyed the shoot house training, dry practice for safety and actual live fire. The danger of close quarter shooting.
This was given to me to read As a former law enforcement officer, I thoroughly enjoyed this manual, I feel this should be required reading for every patrol officer and detective who works the streets. Also should be read by law enforcement supervisors and Law enforcement professionals with LE duties who have limited/no experience working the streets.
I've known Jim Fountain for the past 35 years & have worked with him as a true L.E. partner. His vast experience & knowledge has all been summarized in this book & it should be required reading for anyone who wants to stay alive in a tactical situation. A book very well written & easy to absorb....a ten on any scale.
I have the distinct opportunity to work South Bureau Homicide Where Jim Fountain was an outstanding investigator and tactical leader. I have know Jim for well over 20 years and had the opportunity to receive advance officer Safety Tactical Training at his Black Mountain Training Facility
I liked the whole book. Very informative and easy reading. Helps me understand what law enforcement deals with on a regular. It also helps me to know what to expect should I be in a situation where I need help.
