Course detail: Active Shooter Response/Tactical Entry Training for Officer Survival

Course Description
This foundational program comprises close-quarters combat training, tactical thinking, and teamwork drills. It's designed for all street-level officers but has also been presented to numerous tactical/SWAT teams. This flexible system of room-clearing techniques is taught to small groups, down to a two-person team. We teach proven tactics that can be used by any number of personnel in any structure, the reality of what officers face. Elements of dynamic entry, stealth search, and active shooter scenarios are addressed in this program. Students will be aligned with concepts and tactics for clearing any structure. Officers will gain confidence in their abilities and co-workers' abilities.
