Knives remain the biggest threat to police safety

This article, although written based on UK statistics, backs up what I have read repeatedly, that knives are one of the biggest threats for police. The reasons seem to be that blades are readily available, inexpensive, easily concealable, and very effective. The article states that, "... research reveals 7,000 officers have been threatened with a gun and 40,000 a knife, in the last two years."

This points to the need for continual drilling of DT based on the probability of the threat posed by bladed weapons. Read the rest.
