This is an intensive “tactical” applications course designed for the explicit purpose of officer safety for those officers involved in high-risk encounters with subjects implicated in drug and other investigations. The training is relevant for federal, state and local drug task forces, narcotics squads, officers who encounter drug violators in their patrol duties, and teams investigating and executing arrest warrants for subjects involved in drug trafficking and violent crimes. The training is offered at two locations: Camp Blanding, Florida, and the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Forsyth, Georgia. These sites provide the necessary facilities for the intensive hands-on and scenario-based training used throughout this class. High-impact learning is aided by Simunitions-equipped weapons for tracking operational skills and student survival behaviors. Exercises develop skills of rules of engagement relevant for traditional police activities and military-law enforcement.
