Moving Target Training- Use of Force Strategies
MotoShot offers a controlled scenario encounter that can provide students and department leadership the opportunity to reinforce department policies on the use of force, as well as valuable discussions on improving use of force strategies.
I recently spoke to some of my fellow instructors asking what feedback they receive from their students regarding firearms training. Some advised “nothing” which I suspect is because they don’t ask, others say, “it’s the same old thing.” A mix of others say, “it’s not relevant,” “it lacks realism,” still others argue, “We don’t train often enough.” All valid, all solvable.In light of recent events in law enforcement, I try to envision how MotoShot could enhance training and possibly mitigate some of these incidents. I have written in the past about subjects fleeing and officers using deadly force and I stand by that.
As for MotoShot and in keeping with your state’s laws and department policy, MotoShot offers you the ability to repeat deadly force encounters and to “re-live” an incident thereby providing alternative outcomes. MotoShot offers a controlled scenario encounter that can provide students and department leadership the opportunity to reinforce department policies on the use of force, as well as valuable discussions on improving use of force strategies.
MotoShot can be outfitted with a variety of weapons that can be discarded by the instructor. Additionally, MotoShot can be positioned in an endless variety of terrains and directions to provide students the opportunity to re-enact current or past incidents and to have powerful discussions with instructors on students\’ reactions to those incidents. No officer or student should walk away from a MotoShot lesson saying, “That was boring or not relevant.”
