SWAT Team Training Held In Los Angeles
Last Thursday and Friday, Irvine Police Department SWAT had the opportunity to train with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB). SEB members provided incident debriefs of critical incidents highlighting lessons learned and provided range training. At the end of the first day, SEB ran IPD SWAT members through their timed carbine course. This course involved shooting positions at 200 yards, 150 yards and 75 yards. Each operator had to sprint in full gear to each shooting position. SEB shared that their longstanding course record was 42 seconds. While several IPD team members matched or came close to the record, Officer Campbell set a new course record at 39 seconds! During the second day, the teams participated in scenario based training for search warrants, barricaded suspects, hostage incidents, officer/citizen rescues and sniper initiated resolutions.
