Charity:

If you happen to be in the North Texas area this week check out the Guns & Hoses Brews & Bugs fundraiser for families of fallen officers at Lakewood Brewing March 5.
 
 
If you aren't in North Texas check out charity events for families of fallen officers near you.


Travel Security:

Lots of great content on the Loadout Room but this one is particularity relevant to travel discussing ideas to acquire cheap throw away defensive weapons upon arrival at your destination.

Leadership:
