National SWAT best practices say a civilian police special weapons team should conduct a yearly 40 hour team school or workshop, to retain proficiency, develop new tactics and practices, and evaluate the current team philosophy, skills, and abilities. This suggestion, a requirement if a team is committed to its mission of saving lives, is for full and part time teams. The intent is for the entire team to have an extended time to work together and identify areas needing improvement, in a time frame that allows for diagnosis and repair to occur.
Onyx Training will work with your team to develop a comprehensive, or focused team workshop that will help your team hone its skills and abilities while also providing new insight and fundamental proficiency. As with all of our training, the focus is on principle based decision making that accounts for, and is accountable to the humans involved. A portion of instruction is in utilizing de-escalation techniques and resources to avoid unnecessary or inappropriate uses of force.
We can create courses that accommodate and account for your time and scheduling constraints. We can pack a week of training into 3 days. Or we can focus a course to address your specific needs; perhaps you want to focus on High Risk Warrant Service. Or only Barricade Operations. Whatever your goal, we are here to help you exceed it!
