Teach kids practical skills for dealing with gun violence
This tactical tip follows on the theme of my column from last week. Not only should law enforcement parents — again, all parents really — be actively teaching our kids to be Sheepdogs (rather than sheep), but we should also be giving them the tools to quickly recognize and respond to the approaching wolf.
Cops understand the benefit of scenario-based training. It applies to kids, too. Don’t just tell your kids what you need them to do if they are with you off duty and a critical incident arises. Practice it with them.
