U.S. counterterrorism officials warn police to be on alert for ambush attacks | CNN

An intelligence report has discussed the appeal for ambush attacks on law enforcement by terrorists due to their 24/7 presence and visibility. Going after first responders from the start can also hinder their ability to respond to other threats and attacks while they are dealing with the ambush. Federal counterterrorism officials have called for police departments all across the country to be wary of these methods after FBI data showed that 53 U.S. law enforcement officers were victims of these styles of attacks between 2014 and 2018.
