Tackle skills training
Saturday, September 27, 2008
The 485 hours of training for potential peace officers included classroom sessions on such topics as traffic law, radio communications, report writing, testifying in court and computer crimes. The trainees also participated in simulations on defensive tactics, night building searches, firearms safety, driving techniques, crime scene investigations, fingerprinting, booking and transporting prisoners and other peace officer skills.
Simulation sites included the driving range at the University’s Minnesota Highway Safety & Research Center and Benton Hall on campus, where trainees executed search warrants and responded to a mock domestic situation.
