GROUND OPERATIONS DEVELOPMENT
Tactical Patrol Survival
Patrol Officer’s most dangerous encounters will occur during traffic stops (both routine and felony), and while entering buildings to search and clear for suspects.
This course is a physical and intense (3) day course for Patrol Officers, designed to build upon basic shooting skills, traffic stop techniques and building clearing tactics learned in an Academy or during an In-service training environment. These techniques are often reserved and/or associated with advanced tactical training or tactical teams but have been modified for use by patrol officers during daily business to provide them with a tactical advantage over both known and unknown suspect(s).
During this course the Patrol Officers will be exposed to the theories of “ Lag Time”, The OODA Loop”, and “Acti on vs. Reaction” concepts that can either be the advantage or disadvantage to the officer when encountered by a hostile threat.
Exposure to these concepts are the building blocks on which the student will receive tactical instruction on how to conduct traffic stops, felony stops, and building clearing techniques. Additional instruction will be received on how to remove hostile or unwilling suspects from a vehicle with minimal force by the law enforcement officer as outlined by Physical Conflict Resolution (P.C.R.) tactics.
Upon completion of this course the Patrol Officer will have gained confidence in his/her ability to assess a possible hostile encounter with a suspect, and allow them a tactical advantage over a suspect who may be attempting to carry out a surprise assault upon the officer. This understanding will greatly enhance the tactical patrol officer’s ability at gaining optimum advantage during a hostile attack.

qualifying/ assessment with pistol and rifle/shotgun
transitions and reloads
