High Risk Patrol Tactics Course, March 25 -26
Mar 25 – Mar 26 all-day

High Risk Patrol Tactics –



COST $189.oo 


Officers are being ambushed at an increasing rate while responding to routine calls. The time is now upon us , ALL Officers who respond to Calls for Service MUST be tactically trained. The HIGH RISK PATROL TACTICS Course is our newest course designed just for this reason. I’ve compiled the best of my 30 plus years into this 20 hour course with the intention of teaching the Officer as much tactical information possible over two days. These are not watered down active shooter only tactics based around a single situation. The tactics taught in this course apply to any and ALL situations Officers face, rural or urban environments. At $189.00 you will not find a better package taught by a more experienced instructor. Some of the topics taught include:

  • How to Properly Set Up a Plate Carrier
  • Understanding Categories of Attack
  • Important Survival Considerations
  • Aspects of Stress Response
  • Close Range Encounters, Live Fire with Pistol and Rifle
  • Firing from Disabled and Disadvantage Positions
  • Individual and Small Team Movement (1-3 Officers)
  • Exterior Movement, Vehicle to Hard Cover
  • Exterior Movement, Hard cover to Vehicle
  • Interior Movement, Live Fire Shoot House, 1, 2 and 3 man Tactics
  • Vehicle Hard Points, Long Range Encounters
  • The Approach and Contact Phases of the CFS
  • Vehicle Approach on High Risk Calls
  • Vehicle and Officer Down Scenarios
  • Equipment and Vehicle Usage
  • Training/Working in Daylight and in Darkness

Much More……

I have always taught and to this day believe it is on the individual Officer to see to it that they have the best training possible. Most Departments are overwhelmed and burdened with scheduling and providing the many mandated course required these days. NONE of these have anything to do with Officer survival. It is for this reason that I keep my price VERY REASONABLY and anyone who has taken one of my course will tell you that I give you my 100%, every course I teach! You will work hard in this class any you will leave with fresh knowledge and more familiar with tactics that you will be able to employ on your very next shift, should the need arise. We all want to go home every day to our families I have committed myself to training as many Officers as possible so that we all go home!
