Manual Breaching and Ballistic Shield Use
Many departments have taken the initiative
of purchasing manual breaching tools for their agency’s patrol
vehicles however have only trained special operations or tactical officers
in their use. In the age of rapid deployment and a need for immediate
action by responding officers, this type of training is mission essential.
There have been numerous active assailants who have fortified the location
of their attack, most notably Seung-Hui Cho at Virginia Tech in
2007. This 8-hour course is designed for patrol officers
and tactical operators. This training will contain instruction
on door mechanics, breaching doors and windows, and ingress through
the breach point. Upon completing this training, students will
be able to properly utilize manual breaching tools for high-risk entries.
