I may be able to finalize a "Hogan's Alley" style tactical training camp in the summer. I've made the suggestion for the last four years, but this is the first time I've had positive feedback. Not holding my breath, but staying optimistic. Possibly one - three scholarship spots if my proposal is accepted, and I've chosen candidates to be notified if we get the green light. Fingers crossed. I'll update in a couple weeks.

I plan to have three paramedics, with between 5-15 years of experience, to run first responder drills. I have confirmed a disaster management specialist who will give daily seminars, as long as I can do the camp before the following school year. I may have a tactical driving instructor if I can get some insurance issues ironed out (which seems likely to happen).Perhaps most exciting for our purposes, I have loads of friends and colleagues willing to play different roles for patrol training scenarios. We will do mock defensive drills against an escalating number of opponents, encounter dynamics with groups (yours and theirs), and basic decision making skill development. There would be some training videos as well, based on the YouTube analysis and UCR data, among other sources. A skills assessment with suggested supplemental training would be included. Now, here's the catch: In order to make this happen, the financial decision makers want to see a return, and execs want to be sure of who is trained. Felons cannot attend, and the cost would depend upon how many qualified people committed to registration. Obviously, not everyone has thousands of dollars to throw around, and many people don't want to give up their personal information. These are just two of the key issues I've been trying to work around. Part of the solution is to hold the training in or near the geographical location with the highest number of known qualified RLSH. Then travel costs would be less for the largest number of potential attendees. The issue of protecting the privacy of registrants is still being discussed. So far there has been no agreement on how or where such information should be kept, and a camp isn't likely to happen without a solution. If anyone has a thought, it couldn't hurt to share.

I was also thinking about possibly sponsoring a famous Seattle crime fighter. Don't know if that would be a good idea or not. Perhaps polarizing.

It may be worth the effort to bring in a core group to take the initial course, maybe add to the course a section on training others and certify them to be qualified to instruct your course, and have them set up and offer the same courses to others near them. It's like a wave, or a web: you have a core group, which instructs another group, etc., etc. That makes it more affordable - albeit harder to pay for, - and ensures that, eventually, everyone is, at least, as legit as everyone else. Each instructor pays for their own training, and each instructor accepts money only for their own training purposes, eliminating the danger of a pyramid.

I got nothing on that. Training generally work for everybody, but I have no idea how it will affect somebody who isn't sane. Not claiming that he's insane, but since media work the way it does, it's easy to get the impression that some of the nuts might still be in the box.
