Course Description: This challenging firearms training course focuses on patrol rifle deployment techniques and use of the patrol rifle by officers responding to rapid deployment incidents.
With the increase of incidents involving officers engaging heavily armed and armored assailants, the necessity for patrol rifles in police cruisers has reemerged with agencies across the country.
Law enforcement first responders will be the first line of defense when responding to active shooters, terrorist threats and Immediate Action Rapid Deployment (IARD) incidents.
This firearms training course takes the student beyond the basics of the rifle and introduces the patrol officer and first responder to deployment techniques that are critical when dealing with these types of incidents.
