Who is this for?

Developed for Police Snipers who provide over-watch for sporting events and other large public gatherings.

Course Description

Four (4) or Five (5) Day

Our Police Sniper Response to a Public Venue Course- PSRPV™ is designed to teach the experienced police sniper how to provide proactive over-watch protection to any public venue where large amounts of people attend, and that could possibly be a target of a domestic or international attack. The course is conducted in a crawl, walk, and run progression to maximize the students learning ability and emphasizes total venue protection ranging from active shooter to person borne & vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (PBIED/VBIED). Students will live fire with their precision rifles into purpose built rifle traps from deliberate and hasty FFPs inside an actual open or closed sporting venue. Students will be challenged through physical conditioning and their ability to apply their craft on demand. The purpose of the course is the proactive protection and response to potential terrorist acts that threaten our citizens at sporting events. The end goal of the course is to enable the police sniper to have confidence through training and documentation to stop or mitigate terrorist acts inside or outside public venues.
