BRIEF Overview: The need for one-on-one, or group interventions after dealing with traumatic events is important to keep first responders physically and mentally healthy. The mental fatigue of these investigations can no longer be swept under the rug, but must be dealt with in order to prevent career ending mistakes, divorce and suicides. Studies have shown that those who are reluctant to seek psychological help are often willing to discuss issues with peer support teams.
This class will cover the dynamics of dealing with traumatic incidents/investigations, and how to mentally/emotionally survive the aftermath. This will be presented by two experienced law enforcement officers; however the topic is timely and relevant for anyone involved in traumatic investigations. This is an important class, but these two experienced instructors will keep the class engaged, and laughing.

This rifle course will cover preparing for the immediate, spontaneous and lethal attacks not covered on a square range. Principals based on sound fundamental tactics for the patrol rifle operator will be introduced at a venue that takes you off the square range and into an environment where the operator determines the shooting position, cover, movement, distance to target, and their limitations in abilities to make a legal and moral decision to engage and stop threats. OPOA is excited to bring back firearms training that will make a difference and bridge the gap in rifle operations for the patrol officer.
