Seconds for Survival for Law Enforcement

“Seconds For Survival” is a program that is designed to take the reactionary gap off of the officer and put it back onto the suspect. This is not only one of the most popular courses in the country, but one of the most important for every police officer. Duane Wolf calls the class “the best” he has ever seen in over thirty years of law enforcement experience.


Structured with the intent to provide pertinent information and real-world training to the student law enforcement officer with the necessary information to better prepare them to function efficiently in situations that are “tense, uncertain, and rapidly evolving”. The techniques taught in this class are compiled from a myriad of sources with the primary intent to enhance the law enforcement officer’s probabilities of survival in today’s environment.
