Defense Against Lone Wolf Attacks

Lone Wolf.jpg

TOPIC:  Domestic terror attacks are increasing in frequency and lethality.  Here in the West, attacks in Europe and America are happening so fast it’s hard for security professionals to keep up.   

When an attack hits home, it's not the CIA or FBI who are first on the scene, it's the local police. They are on the front lines saving lives, protecting the scene and securing evidence.

However, the police are also becoming targets as well. With the increase of IED’s, Active Shooter engagements, and ambush attacks from jihadists and other leftist groups, there’s never been a more dangerous time to be a police officer.

There’s a misconception that nothing can be done to prevent these attacks, but that’s wrong.  The fact is that local authorities are in a better position to intercept and thwart these domestic attacks than their federal counterparts. But it takes knowledge. And it takes training.
