NRA Executive Director of General Operations, Craig Sandler said, “Without the active involvement of exceptional members of the law enforcement community, NRA programs could not reach as many individuals at the local community level.” The program has been endorsed by members of the law enforcement community nationwide, such as Sheriff Howard Sellers of Aiken County, South Carolina who said, “It encourages people to think through risky situations…and it inspires confidence in that they know how to enter a situation, assess the risks and have tools at their disposal to deal with it properly.”
