Coming from the world of Law Enforcement, particularly Law Enforcement Training, we had the opportunity to see the inner workings of Police Training. We can agree that if you choose Law Enforcement as a career, it has its inherent risks. Having the capabilities to perform at a high level is a must. The modern Public Safety Professional must have the ability to make the right decisions, physically perform Law Enforcement objectives and tasks, all while under possible stress and scrutiny. Let's face it, "The Job" is not for everybody, it's absolutely for those who have the right frame of mind, attitude, patience and understanding of Laws and Procedures. If you are not "Fit for Duty", those inherent risks may bring on unforeseen and damaging consequences. 

Training to a high standard helps, but so many times the Officer has to contend with so many obstacles. Department may not approve training days, unable to get days off, budget issues, filling your position, as well as the need for you to be performing your assignment, to name just a few. 

Threat Reflex LLC is dedicated to providing Public Safety Professionals with quality training, as well as better options to gain that training.
