Modern Warrior Project Black Label Reports are company internal and Client commissioned surveys aimed at improving the quality and relevance of our training, services, and products as well as enhancing our overall understanding of a particular topic. Although there are aspects of original reports which are considered proprietary and therefore excluded from any publicly available versions, there is much we learn that can benefit the community as a whole. As part of our continued commitment to the training industry we so love, we will always release whatever portions of our Black Label Reports that we can to the public at minimal prices in digital format and print.

Volume 1 of the Black Label Report series is a fusion of related studies and statistical data from more than 25 credible sources of documents/resources. It has been made by and for operators and trainers. This BLR takes a long and detailed look at Violent crimes in the United States, Law Enforcement Officers Killed or Assaulted (LEOKA), Justifiable Homicides, Officer-Involved Shootings (OIS), and gunfights. By consolidating a tremendous amount of relevant and reliable information into a single cohesive document we hope to aid military, police, and civilian organizations and individuals in better focusing their training efforts.
