Law Enforcement Survival Training

Posted: Updated:

In rural North Dakota, help can sometimes be many miles...and many minutes away.

For law enforcement, that can mean help for them is far away too in a time of great need.

Today (Monday) in Minot, officers and troopers from across the state were being trained on how to handle a life-threatening situation they could encounter in rural North Dakota.

Life Saving Consulting Group was presenting to a handful of law enforcement personnel today.

Jonathan Thompson is the president of the group.

He is trained in survival techniques...and was providing information today that could prove vital in a life-threatening scenario that any of these officers could face someday.

In rural areas, the difference between living and dying could be what the downed officer does to him or herself immediately.

(Jonathan Thompson - LSCG President) "If you can imagine a ND trooper in the middle of the night pulling over a motorist several miles from anywhere, and that trooper may be gunned down, maybe stabbed or shot, it may be several minutes to an hour or more for an ambulance to arrive or another officer is there to save him or her."

The Minot Police Department sponsored the training today that had 22 officers from around North Dakota attending.
