Police Firearms unit - cO19 (SCO19)
‘CO19 is Scotland Yard’s specialist firearms unit. This elite cadre of highly-trained police officers are on standby to respond to any armed incident in London. Both men and women can join CO19. The unit trains all other UK armed police officers.

CO19 has around 550 members, including training staff, SFOs and ARV units.’

no, she didn't... from the Mirror

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/woolwich-attack-watch-shocking-video-1907772

She was armed with just a Taser as she sat in the driver’s seat of the BMW X5 and was only saved when a male colleague sitting in the back made a split-second decision to fire his machine-gun from point blank range through the window.

Around 1988 I met a British cop who was attending a religious retreat in the North Carolina mountains.

I got to talking to him, and mentioned their cops not carrying guns. He told me that he actually did carry a Walther PPK but that it was concealed.

I am not sure what unit he belonged to, maybe something like this one but it surprised me. He was also a lay preacher in a Southern Baptist Church.

Just about everything about him was something I would never have guessed.

She needs much more range time. Much more.

They might want to start training on response time.

It took 14 minutes for armed police officers to arrive and in the mean time the armed terrorists could have killed scores of unarmed citizens. Doesn't gun control make you feel so safe?

Consider, that in 1876 when the Jesse James gang tried to rob the bank in Northfield, MN they were met with a hail of bullets from armed citizens and an armed citizen posse chased down and either killed or captured most of the gang members.

Someday all British cops will be qualified to carry a gun, hopefully, in the meantime they should at least let American tourists carry the same guns that we wear back home.

She needs to hit the range more often.

The perps threatened her with a knife and meat cleaver. She should have followed basic threat suppression tactics: Two to the chest and one to the head.

Your article claims this "The Police Officer who shot the 2 suspects in the Woolwich terrorist attack is one of the few female members of the Met's elite firearms squad, SCO19. [1] But the source they give [1] only says that the female cop was "involved"--""THE officer involved in the Woolwich shooting is one of only a handful of women in Scotland Yard’s elite CO19 unit."" A unit known for affirmative action. Are you sure that you are accurate to be claiming that the woman shot them both?

Had that been Texas , Arizona, Alaska, Vermont, Florida etc ...more than likely said “average” woman would have dropped her groceries to the curb, drawn her pistol, stepped out of the crowd watching these two bastards and stopped it before the soldier was murdered.....

Specialist Brit cop my ass....

LOL. Down here in Florida, that Muzzie animal would have been shot in the first 45 seconds of his attack by a citizen.

Fine with me. In the coming storm, we’re going to need all the heroes we can muster. I don’t see Islamic fanaticism retreating on its own, just expanding. Our “president” only encourages these animals.

...who carry out pre-planned operations...

One of my favorites. "Pre-planned" huh? As opposed to "post-planned."

It's almost as good as "I could care less."
