Current culture demands we focus on educating today’s officer in the statistical realities of surviving the “24/7” aspect of a career in LE by addressing both on / off duty challenges.  This internationally known seminar is open to police officers, but with special emphasis on court officers at this session.  Nationally recognized, veteran LEOs and trainers train with the latest technology, video of current/live LE related incidents, case law, scientific data regarding stress management, human performance, the use of force and even address when members of the profession act irrationally, unlawfully and unprofessionally.

8:30 - 9:15 am Shootout in Steubenville: Court Officer Saves Judge

  from Attempted Assassination

A gripping reconstruction of the assassination attempt against Jefferson County Judge Bruzzese by a gunman in Steubenville on August 21, 2017.  This murder was foiled when a tactically minded court officer killed the would-be assassin with gunfire at close quarters just steps from the courthouse across from City Hall.  The severely wounded Judge was armed and returned fire at his assailant.  Another judge who was a former registered nurse provided field treatment of the judge’s gunshot wounds on the sidewalk.  All of these heroic actions combined to save the Judge’s life.  This is the second Case Study in the Ohio Court Officer Safety & Survival Series.
