Sacramento Hostage Crisis: 30 Years Later

I have said this many times, but the point never diminishes over time. I have been blessed to have met so many amazing people in my life. Today marks the 30th anniversary of the 1991 Sacramento hostage crisis, also known as the Sacramento Good Guys Incident. I had the good fortune of not only meeting the SWAT team members who were involved in the incident I was able to train and work with a few of them throughout my career. A couple of them I’m honored to call my friends. All of them were shining examples of what it is to be a police officer. There were many tactical lessens learned from the incident. In the end, eleven hostages were wounded, three were killed and three of the four hostage takers were killed.
