Abstract

Good luck happens when preparedness meets opportunity. – Bret Harte Preparedness is strength and power. It is a police officer’s best means to prevent harm and adversity. It is his or her best offense and defense. For a patrol officer, preparedness can be the difference between a successful shift and one laden with stress, strain, and peril. It can be the difference between life and death. For patrol officers, deputies, and troopers, “preparedness” is synonymous with “survival.”
