P1 First Person: Changing the mindset
By Sergeant James Magas
Lee County Sheriff's Office
Let’s go back to September 10, 2001. What would you have told me if I said, “Tomorrow an incident is going to occur that will ground every airplane in the United States.” You’d tell my I was crazy, right?! Unfortunately, that incident did happen and it was the worst attack on United States soil. Fast forward to today. Ask yourself as a law enforcement officer, are you really prepared for another terrorist attack? Weather it is from a foreign nation or to our very own domestic terrorism, are you prepared? Is your zone partner prepared? Is your agency prepared?
