Training Triumph: Train, Evaluate and Apply

Why it’s such a valuable piece of training equipment

The video demonstrates officers from various departments coming together for training. It’s a prime opportunity to see how different units collaborate and learn from each other.

Notice how they’re all focused on mastering the fundamentals of use of force effectively.

Take a close look at the drills with ballistic shields – this is where they’re refining their coordination and movement skills, crucial for real-world scenarios. Room entry techniques are also a key part of their training, emphasizing safety and efficiency in high-pressure situations. As we progress from practice runs to live fire exercises, you’ll see their skills tested under realistic conditions.

The initial team enters the scenario, encountering decision-making targets, some of which are colored for stimulus purposes. During this, the MotoShot Mover target appears to wield a knife, adding complexity to their decision-making process. Reacting swiftly and taking appropriate angles, the officers verbalize commands for the target to drop the weapon. However, the situation escalates as the target advances toward them. With no alternative, the officers respond by neutralizing the threat. Following the incident, all team members conduct
wellness checks, ensuring the safety of all involved, thus accomplishing their mission.

In the subsequent series, officers execute similar entry movements, encountering the MotoShot Mover subject target armed with a firearm. Following a momentary delay in visual recognition by the operators, they decide to engage upon spotting the weapon. Despite a slight pause, they successfully accomplish their mission, ensuring proper angles and response.

Critical Teaching Point:
The final team of officers enters to execute a rescue operation using ballistic shields. Upon entry, they encounter the MotoShot Mover subject target swiftly moving from left to right. Reacting to the perceived threat, the officers issue commands and open fire. However, what they failed to discern was that the object in the target’s hand was simply a “Sharpie” marker, with a silver body and black cap. It seems that some of these officers may have been influenced by observing the prior two series, which involved shoot situations. This raises the possibility that they replicated the actions they had seen earlier. Nonetheless, this scenario underscores valuable lessons in tactical applications and the importance of mastering tactical principles.

Be diligent in studying, analyzing, and learning from others, while also dedicating time to hone your own techniques. The key is to master these tactics by applying them to the diverse situations encountered during training. Remember, just because one person may resort to using force, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to follow suit. Assess the situation in front of you, consider your angles, identify potential threats, and be able to articulate the reasoning behind your actions.
