COURSE DESCRIPTION: Law Enforcement Response to the Active Shooter – Instructor-Level Course
This is a 45-hour instructor level course equipping law enforcement agencies in dealing with the increasing problem of active shooters in highly populated buildings such as schools, businesses and day-care centers.
A review of the most publicized and recent active shooter tragedies will be conducted. The importance of preparing for this type of dynamic, quickly changing, worse case scenario in a realistic training environment cannot be overemphasized. This course includes extensive force-on-force drilling, live-fire drilling, and several field-training exercises with actors, pyrotechnics, and projectile training weapons designed to simulate a real-world scenario.
This immersion increases the proficiency level of participants so they can more effectively deliver these proven concepts and protocols to their agencies and organizations.
