What is the Tactical Breakdown?

Welcome to the Tactical Breakdown.

Our goal is to bring you a platform that gives an in-depth look at the most current training, tactics, and technology used by today's top Law Enforcement, Military, and Security experts. Our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) bring you their real-world knowledge and experiences and breakdown the incidents, operations, and personal stories that influenced them.

Not only do we strive to deliver actionable information through our podcast, but we actively seek engagement from the top Instructors and Trainers in the world.


This is why we started the Instructors' Roundtable (IRT)... a Livestream Video Conference that allows you access to instructors from across the country and around the world. 

Join us the LAST THURSDAY of every month at 6:00 PM CST to engage with our panel. ASK QUESTIONS - GET ANSWERS. 


We also are proud to have partnered with organizations that raise awareness of Mental Health and Crisis Response for our First Responders, LEOs, Active & Veteran Military Members, and Security Personnel across the world.
