Tactical and Urban Sniper Course
August 31 @ 8:00 am - September 4 @ 5:00 pm$875
This demanding, five day course is designed for the entry level or newly appointed tactical officer assigned to the role of police sniper. This course focuses on the basics of precision rifle work with a sniper-grade rifle and the intricacies of the scout/sniper in tactical police operations. Topics covered will include: range estimation, understanding ballistics and the effects of weather on ballistics, scouting and covert surveillance, urban and rural stalking, setting up a hide position in rural and urban environments, and implementing modern tactical technology specific to the police sniper. We will spend the majority of the course outside the classroom on ranges, stalk lanes, and urban training areas. We will also conduct scenarios where students will have to covertly infiltrate a training area and observe, communicate, intelligence gathering, and potentially prosecute a threat without being detected.
