WHAT IS AN AMBUSH?
Generally, four factors have come define an ambush assault:
• Element of surprise • Concealment of the assailant, their intentions, or weapon • Suddenness of the attack • A lack of provocation
As high as 70% of all type of attacks on LEO’s are spontaneous ambushes. The ambushes are unprovoked attacks without long-term planning. These types of attacks are often considered “crimes of opportunity.” The assailant makes the decision at the time of the officer’s approach and surprises the officer with an unprovoked assault.
