Yes. I hesitate to “recruit” people, as that has backfired on me in the past but we should definitely teach our tactics and procedures to younger officers. It may spark an interest in trying out for the team or it may simply give a younger officer more tools in his toolbox…either way, it’s a win-win situation.
