P1 First Person: Standing downrange

Editor's Note: PoliceOne “First Person" essays are the place where P1 columnists and members candidly share their own unique cop’s-eye-view of the world, from personal insights on issues confronting cops today to observations and advice on living life behind the thin blue line. The author of this column, a PoliceOne member named Paul Castle, first entered Police Service in Chatham, England in 1976 and since 1999 has been a full-time tactical instructor in the United States, UK, Canada, and throughout Europe. Castle, a Sheriff’s Deputy in Tennessee, posted this letter to his Web site in the midst of a controversy that erupted (and was reported here) after a training session he held for a cadre of snipers from a Virginia Sheriff's Department. PoliceOne received his letter from several of our trusted sources, and subsequently spoke with Castle about running this as a First Person column. Do you want to share your own perspective with other P1 Members?
