Dear P1 Member,

In this month's eNews, Dan Marcou discusses cover and suppressive fire, and how it's both a blind spot in our training as well as a gray area in our policies. We're featuring an article from Sheriff Gregory Ahern of the Alameda County Sheriff's Office that describes this year's Urban Shield event; I also discuss Urban Shield in my own piece, and explain how it goes far beyond just SWAT.

Lastly, we turn to Facebook for some advice from veteran SWAT members to newly minted rookies. Take these words to heart!
