This class is designed for the newly graduated police academy recruit, as well as the veteran officer, who is interested in an introductory course into the use and deployment of the patrol rifle.  This is a familiarization course only and not a qualification course.  Students are required to bring their own patrol rifle, as well as 150 rounds of practice ammunition for their rifle (no steel or aluminum cased ammo please), their duty belt including handgun and 50 rounds of handgun ammunition, and their ballistic vest that they normally wear on duty.  Weapon slings are highly recommended but not required.  This course will consist of classroom and range time.
