Mark Redlich

Mark is a co-instructor of our Patrol Survival Tactics seminar. You may recognize Mark from being the co-host of the Shots Fired Podcast. Mark, and his co-host Kyle Shoberg created that podcast to highlight the learning lessons from high-risk police operations. When Mark interviews officers who have been involved in life-threatening incidents, he searches for the nuggets of wisdom he can bring back and share with our students.

Mark recently retired from the Sacramento Police Department in California where he served for 13 years. His previous assignments included the Crime Suppression Unit, Gang Enforcement Team, Full-time SWAT, and the Professional Standards Unit. As a SWAT operator, Mark made more than 350 search warrant entries and responded to more than 110 high risk SWAT deployments. Mark was directly involved in an officer involved shooting and several other life-threatening incidents. He has taken the lessons learned from those incidents and distilled them down into easy to understand concepts officers like you.

Mark’s instructional background includes being a department instructor for Active Shooter, Mass Casualty Response, and Patrol Tactics. Having sat through hundreds of training courses himself he knows that cops deserve a lot more than “death by Power Point”. That’s why when Mark teaches, he makes sure the students are actively engaged.

Mark was awarded a Life Saving Ribbon, the Service Above Self Award presented by the Sacramento Rotary Club, and recognized by the Sacramento Business Partnership for his outstanding community service. But the awards aren’t what is important to Mark. Instead, he is squarely focused on helping cops like you survive and thrive during a life-threatening incident. That’s why he is deeply committed to teaching you the lessons he learned from the incidents he was involved with.
