Just a thought here...maybe a stupid or elementary one at that. Because of the increase in active psychos out there, I'm wondering if any of you sit in your car like you would while eating. Park the car backed up against a wall. If someone wants to attack us, they're going to, but I wonder if not parking in the open would help our awareness level. It would give you 180-degrees of view, and if not face-buried in your MDT, peripheral vision will hopefully kick in and keep you from getting attacked from the sides. Things are changing. I no longer presume someone is going to ask a stupid question and keep officer safety in the back of my mind. I presume someone wants to off me and keep direction asking in the back of my mind. I don't hesitate to unholster and pop the safety off there they can't see the gun, and I'm much quicker to say "let me see your hands" even in more "social" settings with citizens. Anyone else found themselves "adjusting"? I always thought I was fairly officer safety conscious, but I've been doing some critical re-evaluations lately.
