What could be safer than a coffee shop at 8:15 in the morning on a Sunday day shift?  Throw in the fact that there are four of you, in uniform and armed.  

It was November 29, 2009 and this exact scenario played out for four members of the Lakewood Police Department in Washington State.  Sgt. Mark Renninger, Officer Ronald Owens, Officer Tina Griswold, and Officer Greg Richards were sitting in the Forza Coffee Company Shop while working on paperwork on their laptop computers.

Outside, Maurice Clemmons was driving by when he noticed the four patrol cars in the parking lot.  Clemmons had been boasting to friends about his plan to kill police officers during the previous weeks.  Upon seeing the patrol units, he parked his car and walked up to the store.

At approximately 8:15 a.m., Maurice Clemmons entered the coffee shop and pulled out a 9 mm Glock 17.  He, then, proceeded to execute each of the four officers.

He was later shot and killed by police after attempting another ambush.

While this may have been the the largest loss of life from an ambush on police, it was far from the only incident.

In recent years there has been a sharp increase in ambush attacks on unsuspecting officers. 

Below is a video from PoliceOne.com which does an excellent job bringing this issue to light.  It is a perfect training piece for a Roll Call training block and discussion.
