Our Law Enforcement Patrol Rifle Course is a 3-day course that is structured to train students in rifle/carbine skills and techniques to safely carry, control, handle and operate the patrol rifle in various law enforcment situations.
Students will receive professional instructor led training that will commence in the classroom and will include patrol rifle safety, why safety violations occur and how to prevent them, nomenclature and tabulated data, stripping and assembling the patrol rifle, care and maintenance and procedures to safely handle, check and clear the rifle, marksmanship fundamentals and correct zeroing procedures.
Practical lessons will cover, gear and rifle set up, loading and unloading procedures, deploying from cruiser or patrol ready, adopting correct ready positions for firing, fields of fire, fields of view and correct scanning and assessing procedures for day and night operations.
During the weapons handling modules officers will learn how to conduct the immediate action drill when incurring a weapon stoppage and safely conduct a transition to the handgun. Time will be spent on rectifying common weapons stoppages including, empty magazines, failure to fire, failure to feed, failure to extract, double feeds and an introduction to the brass over bolt clearance procedures.
Officers will be tested throughout the course using criterion referrenced assessments and shooting standards commensurate with the course objectives. Testing will include timed standards that will be graded in three categories speed, accuracy and weapons handling procedures. Feedback and critiques will be consistent with instructor observations and practical shooting assessments.
By the end of the course officers will be deemed competent to safely carry, control, handle and operate the patrol rifle.
