Officer Survival Lessons presented by Brian Murphy

This presentation is a firsthand account of a violent attack on a police officer presented by Lieutenant Brian Murphy. Lieutenant Murphy shares his story, his mind-set, and the lessons he learned from surviving a deadly encounter with an armed suspect.

Course Takeaways
• Train like your life depends on it—it does.
• A life-or-death encounter is not the first place you should have experienced pain. Experience and train pain tolerance, and work on your limitations.
• There is no excuse worthy of telling your next of kin why you did not wear your vest. Wear it!
• When preparing yourself, practice—not until you get it right; practice until you do not get it wrong.
• Never, ever give up.

Angela Sands, Prevailing Mind-set—Surviving and Winning a Lethal-force Encounter

In November 2015, Officer Sands was shot while on duty and credits wearing her bullet-resistant vest with saving her life.  Since that time, she has provided local and national presentations and instruction in prevailing mind-set—surviving and winning a lethal-force encounter; post-traumatic stress disorder; and emotional health for law enforcement.
