Counter Ambush Instructor

Law enforcement officers have faced their most challenging years in decades in the recent past, because of protests regarding use of force and unlawful deadly retaliation in the form of ambushes. Police officers are being ambushed and murdered almost every week. Team One’s vision is to increase officer awareness and ability to detect, counter and defeat attempted ambushes. Our goal is to control and win these confrontations through a combination of classroom learning and dynamic force-on-force training scenarios.

  • Develop affective tactical options responding to various types of events
  • Review and enhance tactics to counter multiple types of situations
