Course information: Whether inspired by foreign terrorism or motivated by an anti-government or anti-police bias, the trend of targeted violence against police officers appears to be increasing after years of decline. According to the FBI, the second largest circumstance where law enforcement officers were killed between 2001-2010 was in ambush situations (22%). This three-day firearms course will offer strategies and techniques to avoid being ambushed and to increase an officer's chances of survival during an ambush. The live-fire drills will focus on surviving a near ambush, far ambush, vehicle ambush and injured officer drills. This course will also address basic medical skills during a gunfight.
