COPS 2019 reports by Josephine Falvey and Garvan Lennon

COPS 2019 was an initiative organised by IPA Sweden and the Defensive Tactics Group of IPA Sweden.

It was a training camp in defensive tactics for IPA members from various countries.

The event was held in Uddevalla, Sweden, and took place from 25-27 April 2019.

The main focus of the training camp was defensive tactics training including lectures.

IPA Ireland was proud to send two members who actively participated in the programme, represented their country and organisation, and most importantly who provided some phenomenal and detailed feedback.
