VALOR is designed to help prevent violence against law enforcement officers and ensure officer resilience and survivability following violent encounters during the course of their duties. VALOR responds to the precipitous increase in ambush-style assaults that have taken the lives of many law enforcement officers.

As part of the United States Attorney General’s Officer Safety Initiative, VALOR was created to respond to the startling increase in felonious assaults that have taken the lives of many law enforcement officers. VALOR is designed to be a comprehensive effort that will include classroom and Web-based training, research, and resources for sworn state, local, and tribal law enforcement officers.

VALOR provides instruction and material to various levels of law enforcement, to include line officers, trainers, chief executives, and others as needed. The VALOR Training covers topics including how to anticipate and survive a violent encounter, techniques for identifying concealed weapons and/or armed gunmen, high-risk tactical considerations, and specific threat groups and violent criminals.
