Patrol Rifle I

Patrol Rifle I

Course length: Two Days


Course Description:

Patrol rifle I introduces and reinforces advanced tactics with common long guns used in the patrol rifle capacity.  As the violent nature of attacks on law enforcement have increased, and those threats displaying increased lethality and increased skill, officers can not rely on the mere presence of a long gun to provide a safe resolution.  Patrol Rifle I underlines the need for inherent skills that allow LE to overwhelm lethal engagements with a more precise and more effective rifle deployment.
