Cops, Security, Citizens Need to Be Aware: Does the Climate & Environment Shift in the Wake of bin Laden's Death?

“This is war. it is the most important skill in the nation. It is the basis of life and death. It is the philosophy of survival or destruction. You must know it well. Your skill comes from five factors (philosophy. climate, ground,  leadership, methods). Study these factors when you plan war. You must insist on knowing your situation.”~Sun Tzu

Meet Officers Lewis and Clark-Exploring Situational Awareness

What if the famous explorers Lewis and Clark were police officers?  How would they look at the multitude of situations that cops handle from their viewpoint as explorers?  Back in their day they did not have two-way radios, cell phones, GPS,computers, and 6 inch policy and procedure books, but had to depend on their natural instincts and look at each exploration from a new and unique perspective observing their surroundings and trying to make sense of every situation. How much better would we be? How much safer on the street?


What is the aim or purpose of this series? To improve our ability to shape and adapt to unfolding circumstances, so that we can survive on our own terms. So we are more safe, successful and effective on the street. This work is centered on winning conflict!

The 10% of Mindset

By Fred Leland and John Demand

"Of every 100 men you send to fight, 10 shouldn't even be there. Eighty are nothing but targets. Nine are real fighters, we are lucky to have them, they the battle make. Ah but the one, one is a true warrior and he will bring the others back" ~ Heraclitus

Tactical IQ: Using "SURPRISE" to Set the Tempo of Confrontation.

By: Fred Leland

“By surprise we mean a state of disorientation resulting from an unexpected event that degrades the enemy’s ability to resist. We achieve surprise by striking the enemy at a time or place or in a manner for which the enemy is unprepared. It is not essential that we take the enemy unaware, but only that awareness came too late to react effectively.” ~USMC Warfighting
