Undercover Penn. officer shot, wounded

Undercover safety tips
by P-1 featured columnist Dave Smith

  • Gather as much intelligence on the perp as possible; any rumor or history of weapons or violence, or unusual demands are cues that should make you pick a more public place for the deal. 
  • The Undercover Officer or Confidential Informant must control the location. 
  • Train all your U/C officers on close quarter defense to stop a possible deadly threat.
