Description: This course is a basic law enforcement tactical team course designed to instruct the student in officer safety techniques and team protective measures during a tactical team deployment in high risk operations against armed suspects. The course focuses on enabling the student to learn the presented tactics and techniques through classroom lessons, supported by live fire ranges and practical exercises. Practical exercises are decision oriented, requiring analysis during stressful tactical team missions in armed ‘force on force’ simunitions scenarios.
This course prepares responders to deal with wide-ranging incidents including: hostage/barricaded gunman situations, high risk search and arrest warrant service, terrorist incidents, security operations, and response to civil disturbances. Teams are equipped and trained to operate in urban and rural environments in both daylight and darkness. Blocks of instruction include: ballistic theory, reconnaissance, weapons manipulation, movement drills, live fire, structure clearing operations, structure entry methods, tactical team missions, low light operations, and vehicle assaults/takedowns.
Recommended Equipment: Ballistic vest and helmet, eye and ear protection, camel back for water, day bag for equipment, communication equipment (portable radio and cell phone), simunitions weapons (if available), ballistic shields, duty and tactical weapons, mounted tactical lighting, ammunition, and weapons cleaning kit.
Ammunition: Provision of ammunition for live fire exercises is the responsibility of the attendee and their sponsoring agency. The anticipated round count is 500-700 rounds per weapon system. Please plan accordingly.
