    On average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 53 hours" (http://www.nleomf.org/). Violence against law enforcement officers is on the rise, and officers today face an increasing array of threats as they protect our communities.

    Emerging trends clearly demonstrate the need for a response—a response that will enable the entire U.S. law enforcement community to have access to and benefit from the latest expertise, analysis, tactics, interdiction techniques, and response methods in order to address this critical problem and to reduce the number of officer fatalities. To that end, the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is pleased to announce the VALOR initiative.

    As part of the VALOR initiative, BJA is sponsoring a two-day training program for front-line law enforcement that is designed to promote officer safety and prevent injuries and deaths to law enforcement officers in the line of duty. In this training, participants will gain an understanding of emerging threats, including those posed by antigovernment criminal extremists, and learn techniques for anticipating and surviving a violent encounter, based on the "Deadly Mix" framework (officer, offender, and the circumstances that brought them together). In addition, officers will learn how to identify concealed weapons and armed gunmen, gain knowledge of the mental and physical skills required for high-risk tactical situations that may involve active shooters, and understand the importance of self-aid/buddy-aid training.

    It has long been the tradition on this forum and as well as professionally not to second guess or Monday morning QB the officer's who were actually on-scene and had to make the decision. That being said, I don't think that your discussion will go very far on this board.
