This three day, 24+ hour course is designed to increase an officer’s ability to deal with lethal force threats when employing duty weapons.  This should be considered an advanced level course and attending officers should be well grounded in safe, realistic weapons manipulations in both static and dynamic scenarios.  There will be a basic competency qualification the morning of the first day during which attending officers must display safe weapons handling skills prior to proceeding in the course.  All officers from Patrol level through SWAT will benefit from this course.
