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!
