Patrol Rifle PictureResponsibly training patrol officers on how to deploy patrol rifles is of the utmost importance to ensure they can deploy with speed and fire with precision while maintaining safety and accountability. This course teaches participants how to effectively instruct principles of marksmanship, rifle nomenclature, and operation. Emphasis will be placed on teaching weapons manipulation and training personnel to fight with commonly configured patrol rifles. Although this course is based on the AR-15/M-4/M-16 weapons platform, other systems will be discussed.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements Patrol Rifle Instructor Course #3323.
