Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted
July 27, 2016 0900 until 1700 Trussville Civic Center
5381 Trussville-Clay Road, Trussville Al 35173
LEOKA features interviews with police survivors of violent encounters and interviews with their offender/and offenders who killed officers. The commentary summarizes the perceptual distortions that officers may experience in the line of duty, precipitating a violent encounter. When encounters between officers and suspected or known offenders turn violent and the balance of power shifts in favor of the offender, the interaction has gone terribly wrong. The conference examines the self awareness critical to survival, IE, no complacency and adherence to policy. The conference offers a “description” of characteristics of officer victims. The conference concludes with how to change one’s mindset, so that we are always on our guard.” Conference facilitated by retired LT. Brian McAllister, 28 year veteran of Washington Metro PD, and currently with the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Center, in Clarksburg, WV.
