Waiting on police to save you? What is their policy/training?

A recent article at PoliceOne.com, entitled “ Why 'tactical loitering' doesn't cut it anymore ," says more and more respected trainers are concerned about what they call “tactical loitering” and/or “dithering.” The terms, writes Charles Remsberg, refer to first responders who arrive at the scene of an urgent, life-threatening crime-in-progress — particularly an active shooting — but instead of...
