Mike Wood – Police Lessons from the 70s

Mike Wood is the son of a 30 year veteran of California Highway Patrol and Mike wrote the book “Newhall Shooting-A Tactical Analysis”. This book breaks down the horrific shooting of four CHP officers and what was learned. Mike also is a firearms instructor and columnist for His column is called Tactical Analysis and I found an article that I thought was insightful. The article was on how today’s law enforcement officers could learn from 70s era cops on how to stay safe and deal with the current radical anti-government forces. This is the same radicals the 1970s police were fighting, only now the generation has changed..but the ideas are still there.

Mike breaks down actionable steps that will keep you safe and provides a massive historical context to it all.
