Dear PoliceOne Member,

Evolving threats require evolving tactics and nowhere is this more evident than in public safety response to active shooter incidents. As immediate action rapid deployment replaced scene containment, law enforcement faces new challenges when responding to active killers. The most common obstacle encountered by police are locked doors that are becoming more challenging to breach. In today’s SWAT eNewsletter, Mike Wood asks whether it is time for police to work with fire departments to develop breaching task forces to respond to active shooters.

We also review WMD Guns’ Big Beast for use as a sniper rifle, and profile the role of Dr. Joshua Bobko, who serves as both a reserve officer and SWAT doc for a California SWAT team.
