Don't let them grab your gun


I recently attended a presentation by Gordon Graham, a nationally known law enforcement risk manager. He stressed the importance of officers spending more time thinking like risk managers in preventing known risks than spending all their time thinking like a lawyer practicing damage control after the event. 

This concept needs to be applied to weapon disarming situations. If officers were to spend more of their time developing ways to prevent a disarming attempt, they would most likely have to deal with fewer actual attempts to disarm them where the offender is able to physically lay hands on the officer's weapon.
