Our Law Enforcement Patrol Rifle Course is a 3-day course that focuses on enhancing the individual skills of the officer by way of developing a better understanding of the patrol rifle and how to safely carry it, control it, handle it and operate it during training evolutions designed to create a consistent, benchmark standard for all officers within the department.
Officers will be taken through a series of classroom lesson that have been developed in a logical sequence that introduces them to the patrol rifle. Students will receive formal lessons that cover: 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. Lessons will continue with a marksmanship fundamentals lecture and correct zeroing procedures before moving to the range to commence the practical modules of the course.
Practical lessons will cover, gear and rifle set up, loading and unloading procedures, 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 bolt override clearance procedures. Officers will be tested throughout the course using assessment standards commensurate to the level of training of the officers. 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 more confident and more competent in the safe carriage, control, handling and operation of the patrol rifle.
