SHOOT HOUSES AND SHOOT HOUSE TRAINING Wri$en By: Bob Schneider
OFFICERS NEED TO TRAIN IN A LIVE FIRE SHOOT HOUSE Periodic qualiﬁca7on is just the beginning for a law enforcement oﬃcers’ records. Con7nuing educa7on is required in subject areas such as changes in the law or department regula7ons rela7ng to the use of force, other op7ons available other than the use of deadly force, etc.
OFFICERS NEED TO TRAIN IN A LIVE FIRE SHOOT HOUSE Law enforcement departments have the responsibility and obliga7on to expose their oﬃcers in training to as many situa7ons as possible that they may encounter on the street. Inadequate training will lead to poor results when real crises do arise, as well as possible civil judgments for not providing adequate training.
NEW FIREARMS TECHNOLOGY HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE TO TRAIN MORE INEXPENSIVELY IN SUPERIOR SHOOT HOUSES.
NEW TECHNOLOGY HAS MADE LIVE FIRE SHOOT HOUSES EASY • Historically, live ﬁre shoot houses were made out of old automobile 7res, plywood, cinder blocks, and other material that stops bullets. • With today’s modern technology in clean ammuni7on and live ﬁre shoot house construc7on, there is no excuse not to train oﬃcers in live ﬁre indoor simulators. • Companies such as Ac7on Target make excellent portable bullet traps and live ﬁre shoot houses.
PAY NOW OR LATER • Departments can either pay now (ﬁnancially) to build an indoor live ﬁre simulator and receive immediate access to indoor training scenarios. • Alterna7vely, departments can pay later for not providing this level of training to your oﬃcers. • The cost of "paying later" is far greater as it puts lives in jeopardy and allows for possible lawsuits and other ﬁnancial repercussions.
To ensure that law enforcement oﬃcers are adequately trained, the best choice is to "pay now" by purchasing a live ﬁre shoot house and give oﬃcers the training necessary to successfully do their job in every possible scenario.
