In law enforcement circles, the ballistic shield, by its nature, has been deployed primarily as a “defensive tool”. Heavy, cumbersome and with a limited view to the environment, has propagated the mindset and thought processes the ballistic shield is more of a hindrance than an asset. NOTHING could be further from the truth! Advances in ballistic technology have led to the development of a new breed of shields that are smaller, lighter and easier to maneuver in a myriad of applications.
This twenty-four (24) hour block of instruction will expose the attendee to the advantages of utilizing a ballistic shield in a “offensive” nature. This is an operator course by design and will provide the attendee with an opportunity to expand his/her understanding and knowledge with a general overview of proven ballistic shield deployment concepts and strategies. Understanding the necessary elements for operations are speed, surprise and violence of action, when coupled with a maneuverable ballistic corner as a clearing element, it can greatly enhance the safety of the entry team and further increase the probability of prevailing in an encounter.
