Course Description

Three (3) or Four (4) Day

The SWAT Response to a Public Venue ™ Course is one of our cornerstone courses which has been used to train up teams for two Super Bowls. The proactive protection of public venues cannot be achieved with police snipers alone. The quick and efficient response to stop or mitigate domestic or international terrorist attacks at public venues requires formalized training. This course emphasizes the four main components of proactive venue protection that are necessary for operational success. SWAT Operators, Police Snipers, Tactical Bomb Tech Integration and Command & Control. Each component has a valuable role in stopping or mitigating terrorist attacks to include vehicular ramming attacks. This cannot be achieved without fully integrated training at the venue that that is to be protected. Instructors will teach each component their role and integrate all three in a broad spectrum of reality based training (RBT) at the venue. SWAT Operators will conduct all scenarios with non-lethal training ammunition (NLTA) in Live Target Engagement (LTE) under controlled conditions. The police sniper component has the option to be conducted in a live fire manner if PSRPV™ has been previously taught to the students. The goal of the course is the complete integration of the SWAT team through training and documentation to safeguard public venues and the citizens that attend. RBT equipment to be provided by hosting agency. Course length is dependent upon selected venue(s).
