Blue on Blue: Mental preparation for a worst-case scenario
The possibility of the Blue-on-Blue use-of-force situation happening to us unfortunately keeps increasing. For the Off-Duty Officer or the Retired Officer, it is one situation that learning the right things to do and wearing/using items like the LEOSA banner seems good and will hopefully do the trick for you.
However, this Blue-on-Blue situation (like almost all others) is one where the “worst case scenario” is what we need to be prepared for (or at least be as prepared as possible). The worst case scenario here would be a coworker that changes paths and becomes a threat to you and your legal duty is to use lethal force against them.
