Providing patrol officers with additional training and equipment enables them to respond more effectively to critical incidents both prior to and after the arrival of tactical teams. This seminar examines the factors leading to the TPO concept and the essential skills & capabilities needed.

This training explores the tactical advantages of high lumen, long range and red and green laser sighting systems. This year, participants will have the opportunity to be included in “hands-on” demonstrations of the rail light, laser and handheld light techniques to understand the tactical advantages.

This session will cover active shooter response in low light environment. Rapidly evolving shooting situations require a faster response than forming into modified ‘T’ diamond formations, a two-person team needs to respond quickly and engage suspected shooters as a hunter/killer team. Extremely bright white light aids the team and assists in controlling the shooter.

Response Planning for Critical Incidents
Speakers: Ed Allen and Don Kester

https://i1.wp.com/creative.epsinternet.com/apps/photofile/uploads/2011November/ntoa-4c-logo-LdYPzdT.jpg-resampled-75.gif
Gain insight on the mindset and values of today’s tactical law enforcement officer and why practices used by agencies just a few short years ago no longer work to recruit and retain them. You’ll also cover the qualities that aspiring tactical officers should focus on when applying for entry level and leadership positions within a tactical team.

Existing inventories can be upgraded to deliver safe, reliable and effective suppression-capable weapons. In this session, learn how compact variations of the MCX can be configured in multiple calibers and lengths. Law enforcement professionals deserve a weapon that has the ability to deliver the performance parameters of the 21st century in size, noise reduction and reliability.

More specifically, the presentation will outline material pros and cons by showing real examples of types of target carrier systems, bullet traps, and ballistic protection materials. Meggitt will describe the proper types of equipment to be installed in shooting ranges, such as the suggested target carrier systems for commercial ranges vs. law enforcement ranges, steel traps vs. rubber traps, and many other pertinent “lessons learned.”
