Reality Training: Kai, K9 Incident


Bannock County Sheriff's Department was faced with a unique and dangerous situation: an armed subject who is not complying and is slowly walking back toward town after pointing a firearm at a deputy. What would you do? They sent in their K-9 and the tragic video of what happened has become a focus of much training and debate. PoliceOneTV's Dave Smith discusses this from both a tactical and emotional standpoint.
