Recently Updated for 2021: Texas Supplemental Peace Officer #1018 (TCOLE)
*New* Online Training Course(s) : Verbal Intervention & Crisis De-Escalation (TCOLE) & Texas State & Federal Law Update #3187
This is an OSS Academy® Shotgun on Patrol Tactics online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.
Prior to the U.S. becoming a country, the tactical shotgun was a favorite weapon of law enforcement. It can deliver a variety of munitions from less-lethal to the most deadly available to the average peace officer. It is easy to master and cost effective. Yet, for most agencies, the shotgun is the most under-utilized tool available to officers. Why? Because most officers receive only minimum training on its importance and use.
This course will guide officers and managers through the versatility of the shotgun, selection of equipment, a better understanding of munitions and their various applications, and tactical considerations that can bring all of these elements into clearer focus. Some advanced weapons management is included as well.
Please note, the entire course final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive one (1) hour of course credit.
