Release Date: February 9, 2012
Contact: William Billotte
COPS participants will receive training on tactical topics, such as using cover, clearing rooms, and handling suspects with weapons, and will have the opportunity to negotiate a “cover course.” Instructors will also introduce the fundamentals of marksmanship, which includes firearms safety and weapons handling skills. To understand other standard-issue equipment, participants will learn about arrest techniques and receive hands-on experience with OC spray, collapsible steel batons, and handcuffs. Finally, participants will navigate the combined skills range in a police car, learning about the four corners of the vehicle on an obstacle course, practicing skid avoidance and recovery, and clearing intersections.
Cost: The course will be covered by OLES.
Lodging and Per Diem: Students whose workplace and residence is 30 miles or greater from the FLETC Cheltenham, MD facility (9000 Commo Road Cheltenham, Maryland 20588-4000) will have their lodging and per diem covered during the 3 days of training. CART will issue invitational travel orders and coordinate these requests. (Air, rail and car travel are NOT covered).
