The tactics and techniques utilized do not occur as often as many think, and therefore are perishable skills. Ultimately, the preservation of life and de-escalation of potentially volatile situations, are the key factors and focus of this training.

The media will be given the opportunity to participate in various use of force scenarios. As space is limited, reservations should be made as soon as possible to attend.
