Routinely stepping into danger and making life and death decisions come with the territory of enforcing the law. And it’s precisely when police officers are in the most danger that emergency medical services cannot reach them

In Officer Down! A Practical Tactical Guide to Surviving Injury in the Street, Andrew Dennis, D.O., FACOS, trauma surgeon and police officer, introduces a one-of-a-kind, empowering training experience, the Medical Tactics for Law Enforcement (MTLE) training program, and essential life-saving tools of the Trauma Rapid Intervention Kit (TRIK). The MTLE training and TRIK combine to provide a comprehensive trauma response system specifically designed for law enforcement officers and public safety specialists. This comprehensive trauma response system serves to help address serious deficiencies Dr. Dennis observed through his own practical knowledge and experience with current law enforcement first-responder, first-aid education, training and tools.

Dr. Dennis emphasizes that effective response to traumatic injury in the street is both mental and physical. You will learn about the importance of maintaining a tactical mindset under pressure and application of the various medical tactics and tools as taught in the MTLE training program — from bleeding control, airway management and shock prevention to rescue assists, carries and drags.

Excellent, eye-opening on what the body can survive with the proper mindset. Just because you are shot or injured does not mean you will die.
