I would like to identify 5-10 experienced law enforcement, riot or crowd control, and tactical experts who can help me create written recommendations and training for police commanders, decision-makers, and rank-and-file officers about the lessons learned from these types of incidents and how to prevent them.
The experts I am looking for will have any of following skills/experience/training:
- 5+ years of law enforcement/policing experience, preferably in a mid- to large-sized jurisdiction;
- Personal experience with riots/major crowd control incidents;
- Ability to share lessons learned from your own experiences or training with riots/crowd control;
- Mastery of current training methods/understanding of riots/crowd control;
- Understanding of insurgency/counterinsurgency principles;
- Combat/military experience involving movement and control of large crowds of non-combatants;
- Antifa/BLM/anarchist splinter group mindset and operations experts;
- Tactical experts in deploying less-lethal weaponry like tear/pepper gas/pepper ball;
- SWAT and SWAT gear experts;
- Police ICS/command post experts; and
- Anyone (including non-police observers) with inside knowledge of the unfolding of violent protests in Dallas, Baltimore, Berkeley, Seattle, Charlottesville, or Boston or similar incidents. I have police sources at some of these sites, but would like input from you, if you were there.
Is this you? Then partner with me to teach police officers what you have learned. Even if you've never taught before but you have the expertise to share, I am interested in learning from you. Please share this request with others outside LinkedIn.
Let’s write the comprehensive guide and create the training that police departments need to prevent and stop these incidents from turning violent. Think of it as the police answer to the anarchist's playbook. The tactics of violent protesters are changing. Let's build responses to better protect ourselves and civilians. Better planning, better equipment, and better tactics.
It's easy to sit back and say: "It should have been done differently." Experts seek to share the solutions that will better prepare others for similar incidents.
Contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my website at Dynamic Police Training with a summary of your skills and experience and outline what areas you can contribute. All inquiries, contributions, and identities will be kept 100% protected and confidential unless authorized for disclosure in writing by you.
Thanks for reading. I look forward to working with you.
