Course Objective

99 Signs of Danger™ this class will make any law enforcement officer much more aware of impending danger. 99 Signs of Danger exposes the many indicators warning law enforcement officers that they are in danger of being attacked, imminently attacked, and about to be involved in a fight or flight situation. The creator, retired NYPD SGT, Lou Savelli says, “You can’t win a fight, you don’t know that you’re in”! This class exposes signs of impending attack, armed suspects, multiple subject danger situations, vehicle stop danger signs, and a host of other indicators. The most important objective of this class is Officer Safety.  It is the ability to recognize a threat from someone or something (Threat Recognition).  Unfortunately, in the field of law enforcement, dangerous situations can arise within a blink of an eye or when you least expect it.  Preparing to defend yourself against a threat is important but it coincides with the belief that you can be prepared for any type of threat if you can identify it before or when it is happening.  More importantly, if you can identify a threat, you can create a tactical edge rather than merely be the defender.  Thus, you can have the ability to better prepare your defense, retreat, or offense in order to conquer the threat.
