Lt. Jim Glennon - Tactics For Deadly Force Encounters

Lt. Jim Glennon was a police officer for over 29 years.  He spent 15 years as a Commander and during that time oversaw investigations, patrol and a major crimes task force.  He is a nationally recognized trainer, 15-year lead instructor for Street Survival Seminars, expert in communication skills and tactical mindset, and owner of Calibre Press. He is the author of the critically acclaimed book Arresting Communication: Essential Interaction Skills for Law Enforcement and now co-author of a new book, Street Survival II: Tactics For Deadly Force Encounters. This book is a re-write to the original Street Survival book published in 1980 by Charles Remsberg. The original is widely known as the “Bible for law enforcement” and has certifiably saved the lives of hundreds of officers over the past 38 years. Street Survival, along with the seminar that grew from it, are credited with having revolutionized officer survival training, providing a common core of instruction to protect police professionals physically, emotionally, and legally in more that 50 countries worldwide. It is believed to have been in print - and in demand - longer than any other tactical book ever written for law enforcement. Jim was no doubt honored to be asked to help re-write this legendary text, and I am honored to welcome him to Police Academy Podcast. Enjoy the show!

Facts of Ferguson 5.0

Ignoring history lends us to repeat the terrible and costly mistakes made by those who have gone before us; to ignore the lessons learned the hard way by our predecessors. We all live through moments in time that are clearly a historical inflection point: the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson Missouri was one of those moments. For those of us who remember this event, we have the privilege and, I would argue, the responsibility to tell the truth about what really happened to those who come after us. So rather than relying on Google to inform our future generations about this national-scale tragedy, learn what really happened, remember what it felt like to live through this time, and tell them yourself. Hopefully, and against all odds, they can avoid making the same mistakes.

Cop Stereotypes and Non-Traditional Applicants

We all fall into groups and their stereotypes and, no matter how much we hate being thrown into a proverbial box, sometimes the stereotypes are accurate. So why does the alpha-male stereotype exist with cops and what does it mean if you don't fit that stereotype?

One Thing - Do You Have What It Takes?

Good intentioned people often give horrible advice. Knowing the difference between hard truths and bad advice requires that you know this one thing. Discussion covers:

  1. Do you need to be a naturally aggressive, commanding, or intimidating person to make it into and have a successful career as a Police Officer?

  2. Do you need to be an alpha male to be a good cop? 

  3. Can an introvert be a good police officer? 

  4. Why do some officers survive the job while others do not? 

  5. I'm bad at math; can I be a police officer?
