SABRE TACTICAL TRAINING RESOURCE IN-SERVICE & SPECIALIZED TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR MILITARY AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES 2010 -2011 The 'Sabre' Sword This famous one handed battle sword was used as the primary hand held weapon of the Navy and Cavalry for many years. These Units made use of its strength, during the constant warfare that became a way of life for many years. The single front edged blade allowed ease and safety for the Holder. The cutting edge proving effective as a slicing, and cleaving instrument, in conjunction with its ability to be used as a stabbing weapon. The Sabre trade name utilizes the ‘French’ wording instead of the traditional saber pronunciation, in order to recognize the European training techniques that support the frame work of the ‘Active - Defense’ defensive programs. The Special Air Service of the British Army was formed during the 2nd world war, under the guidance of David Sterling. These units conducted long range warfare, and intelligence gathering against General Rommel’s Africa Korps. For years Units of the S.A.S. have been in the forefront of training and implementation of tactics during battle. In modern times the S.A.S. utilized groups known as “Sabre Units” in order to conduct Military operations. Sabre TTRR is proud to carry on the great traditions that lay behind the Sabre sword. We believe in our commitments, and pride ourselves on our dedication to all those who require, and demand, the highest standards. Sabre TTRR " Our Heritage is a Commitment to Excellence " The training logo of Sabre Tactical Training Resource and Research is displayed above. This unique and original design, appears on our Instructors clothing, and other items of support equipment, such as bags and hats. No other usage for this design is permitted worldwide. This logo is the registered mark of Sabre Tactical Training Resource and Research in the State of TN. The logo can also be found on tee-shirts awarded to Students for outstanding performance during training sessions. Underneath the design may feature specific wording such as “Officer Survival” “Five under one” “ No Mercy ” and “ H.E.A.R.T.” These relate to courses that offer no personal respite on Students training activities, and personal efforts. Or are describing shooting standards, and Tactical Paramedic programs. The wording 9/11- “Never Forget” relates to the loss of Emergency Services Personnel, who were untimely murdered at the New York WTC. The meaning behind the logo is simple but effective. The Sword represents the Right of Justice. The Steel Gauntlets denote the Challenge of Battle against evil, and other wrongdoing. The Latin text found within the scrolls is translated into the following : Brute force without wisdom, falls by its own weight. This is intended to show that any act, undertaken without thought and technique, is doomed to failure. We believe, all actions must have a direction, control, and a purpose.

Sprays we can provide them for the course. Due to the nature of this course certain creature comforts must be the responsibility of the Student. Students should bring with them food and drinks to sustain them throughout each day. Team problem solving is an essential core curriculum of Officer Survival. 3. cont. Field / Patrol Officers learn realistic gross motor skills that work in the field. The training is very physical, and Students will be expected to undertake numerous team tasks. This course has been designed to build “winners.” Students are required to undergo high levels of physical activities. This highlights individual Officers physical fitness levels. Officers are encouraged to push their personal physical limits, in order to discover what techniques actually work for them in a crisis scenario. Sabre TTRR trains its students in numerous weaponry, from Sniper through S.W.A.T. tactics. Sabre’s “Active -Defense” system really can make a positive difference when the difference counts. Each course offered is supported by a fully certified training manual for the weapon. The Glock, and H&K range are included. Sabre Inc. offers firearms training specifically designed for the Remington 1187p, Glock Pistol, and H&K MP5. The Remington Arms model 700 Police Sniper rifle, being one of the most favored systems, is specifically featured in the Urban Tactical Sniper School 'S.C.O.P.E.' 4. cont. New state of the art defensive equipment, features heavily within the ‘Active-Defense’ S.W.A.T. training syllabus. Tactical Rescue Gear, a Company based out of Texas is working with Sabre TTRR supplying the B.A.D.D. This tool is utilized throughout high risk entry training. The B.A.D.D. is a breaching tool which is designed to penetrate mediums such as glass, thin metals, plaster board, dry wall, and wood. This new and innovative device, is very effective when combined with the new training solutions offered by Sabre TTRR. The below pictures show the B.A.D.D. being held in the ‘C.A.R.’ high cover stance. This stance allows for the defensive use of a sidearm, while Team Operators are approaching the target area.

COURSE REVIEW AND EXAMINATIONS COURSE DE-BRIEF / COURSE FEEDBACK GRADUATION & AWARDS END OF COURSE. 1. C.A.R. Center Axis Re-Lock FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR TRAINING 5 day (40 hours) This system is a new and powerful concept in Law Enforcement firearms Instructor training. The C.A.R. Firearms System simply out performs traditional training. This Instructor Course teaches Students how to implement the C.A.R. Firearms System to both Novices, and Experienced Students, who have been trained in the Traditional methods of shooting. The C.A.R. Firearms System incorporates the Combat Matrix of the 6 “R”s and the Triad elements. These have been described as : Mind Set, Gun Handling, and Marksmanship. In support of the triad, has been the balance of : Power, Accuracy, and Speed. In a Law Enforcement application all these elements need to come together, when dealing with a task, or a critical confrontation. The C.A.R. Firearms Instructor training concepts bring together these elements in a new and unique manner. The C.A.R. Instructor course has been developed over a very long period of time by Paul Castle. Designed from a true understanding of how the Human body works under, or during combat crisis. The system was developed for reality, and true close quarter combat. It is not just a rehash of traditional shooting techniques. In several Countries the C.A.R. system is replacing traditional firerams training. Simply put........ this system works. The system offers teaching techniques to enable an Student to develop a higher level of Weapon Retention, than existing techniques to date. The concepts allow the Student to achieve high degrees of movement, speed, and an enhanced Shooting Platform, giving additional speed and accuracy on demand during a Crisis. Once again, simply put - it works!!!! 2. The Instructor Syllabus trains the Student in new methodologies that improve Basic Adaptation from beginner, to a proficient firearms user in a short five day period. This allows Basic Recruit training courses, the ability to build on the basic ‘Active-Defense’ philosophy of C.A.R. The techniques utilized through this concept, are equally effective when using small arms long guns, O.C. and impact batons. This is achieved by building on the Operator's Muscle placement and Natural Body stance. Combined with Fight and Flight reflex stimuli. Note the shooting position does not interfere with full tactical vests, and slung longuns. These techniques are adaptable, in that the Operator may adopt either Small Arms or Long Guns as the Primary Weapon. Opting for a transition to a secondary weapon, if the situation requires it. Once learned these concepts will be a usable asset at all times, and for all weapons. This unique system was developed in Europe by the course Instructor Paul Castle. The system enhances weapon readiness, holster release, speed and accuracy, as never before. The system simply works better than any other system previously available for Law Enforcement and Military Personnel Instructor training. Radical in appearance, once trained in the system its sheer effectiveness is outstanding. Students develop higher shooting skills. 3. In essence this system works around the body shape, and eyesight strengths of the individual Student. No more do we have to bend a Student around the shooting stance. The C.A.R. Firearms System is altered to suit the Student. The C.A.R. Firearms system features the teaching of improved marksmanship at long ranges. Instructors are given additional training to assist in developing Students who have a poor accuracy, and reduced weapon control during live firing. One of the developing facets of the C.A.R. Firearms System is its ability to produce quick, appreciative, and operationally relevant results. Students abilities to shoot, and defend themselves through a wide range of scenarios is increased. The skill core base is essentially obtained through working in harmony with our natural muscle placement, and the real effects on the Human body, when operating under combat stress environments. The C.A.R. Active - Defense Training Graph A B C A B C Quick Adaptation Slow Adaptation Genetic Abilities The above graph is utilized to demonstrate the advantages of the C.A.R. Firearms System when training Students from mixed skill level backgrounds. The ‘A’ range details the immediate improvement in personal weapon retention, a reduction of recoil when firing the weapon, and ability to hit the target at center mass, while on the move. This quick adaptation generally takes no more than one session. 4. The ‘A’ area flowing into the ‘B’ area follows the improvement with continued use of Shotguns, Chemical Irritant weapons, and Impact weapons such as the ASP Baton. This is supported by the utilization of Small Arms while in close confines, such as Patrol motor vehicles. These two areas represent the vast majority of training techniques, required to be mastered by Students. The ‘C’ area is generally very much more specialized. Additional training programs are available to support this basic Instructor Syllabus. The below Matrix represents the key elements that are of critical importance during any physical confrontation, whether armed or unarmed. Size and Shape Endurance Ability 10 5 0 The C.A.R. Firearms System when deployed, increases performance of Operators in the above left column, and assists the Operator, with regard to the areas listed in the right column. A system must work well, and in any given situation. C.A.R. is a system, and not just a stance. The course syllabus includes teaching Instruction in : ◊ Lawful Use of Force applications. ◊ Lesson Plan Formulation. ◊ Group Teaching Dynamics. ◊ Student Feedback and Assessments. ◊ The fundamentals of the C.A.R. System / All aspects of the basic course. ◊ Range Safety Aspects. ◊ Team Formulation. ◊ Energizers, and building frameworks. ◊ Duty or BDU clothing may be worn with body armor. ◊ 500 rounds of duty ammunition required. 1.

For many years Shooters from all fields, Sport, Military, Law Enforcement, and Personal Protection Specialists have been trained on the methodology of modern day firearms techniques. These have become known as : THE COMBAT TRIAD. The Triad elements have been described as : Mind Set, Gun Handling, and Marksmanship. In support of the triad, has been the balance of : Power, Accuracy, and Speed. These elements must work together for success. In a Law Enforcement application all of these elements need to come together, when dealing with a task, or a critical confrontation. The C.A.R. concepts bring together these elements in a new and unique manner. The system also deals with cross dominent eye, and off hand shooting. The C.A.R. system has been developed over a long period of time by CASTLE. Born from a true understanding of how our bodies work during combat crisis. The system was developed for true close quarter combat, and not a rehash of old techniques that the C.A.R. system is now replacing. This system simply "works." The system offers the Operator a higher level of Weapon Retention, than existing techniques to date. The concept allows the Operator to achieve high degrees of movement, speed, and an enhanced Shooting Platform, giving additional speed and accuracy on demand during a Crisis. Once again, simply put - it works!!!! 2. The techniques utilized through this concept, are equally effective when using small arms, through to long guns. This is achieved by building on the Operator's Harmonious Muscle placement and Natural Body stance. Note the shooting position does not interfere with full tactical vests, and slung shotgun. These techniques are adaptable, in that the Operator may adopt either Small Arms or Long Guns as the primary weapon. Opting for a transition to a secondary weapon, if the situation requires it. From a side stance, note that the Operator’s weapon does not extend out past their body silhouette. This allows integration from one mode of weapon to another, without changing body stance, or shooting positioning. Once learned these concepts will be a usable asset at all times, and for all weapons. This unique system was developed in Europe by the course Instructor Paul CASTLE. The system enhances weapon readiness, holster release, speed and accuracy, as never before. The system simply works better than any other system previously available for Law Enforcement and Military Personnel. Radical in appearance, once trained in the system its sheer effectiveness is outstanding. 3. The C.A.R. . 1995 ( Center Axis Relock ) introduces a Fundamental Change to firearms training. This new and revolutionary system surpasses in many ways, both the Isosceles & Weaver stances taught over the last two decades. In Tactical Combat, and Street Critical Confrontation scenarios, this system will out perform all main stream firearm techniques. It will improve shooting confidence in Personnel that have problems on the range, and has been proven to increase Officer shooting proficiency. The system combats any functional disability of the Operator due to injuries. The system aids the reduction of Body Stress, and is totally integrated for weapons ranging from hand gun, sub gun, shotgun, through long - guns. The system allows previously unobtainable levels of stability, weapon retention, physical confrontation, and the ability to clear weapon malfunctions during Critical Confrontation. No other training technique available can achieve these results The course syllabus includes : ◊ Lawful Use of Force applications. ◊ Weapon presentation. ◊ Weapon progression. ◊ Drawn weapon retention. ◊ Loading, re-loading, and crisis malfunction procedures. ◊ Tactical movement, and room entries. ◊ Single hand combat and retention techniques. ◊ Confined space conflicts. ◊ Weapons usage within vehicles. ◊ Concealed weapons carry. ◊ Low light crisis engagement. ◊ Multiple confrontations. ◊ Duty or BDU clothing may be worn with body armor. ◊ 500 rounds of duty ammunition required. 4.

LESS LETHAL MUNITIONS A SECOND CHANCE The use of less lethal munitions by Military Units engaged in peace time police actions, Law Enforcement Personnel, and Correctional Officers, is fast becoming a topic of discussion. There has been some resistance to these munitions, based on lack of knowledge through there being little available training. This coupled with genuine fears that the munitions will fail to achieve the required results, i.e. quick incapacitation of the target. Sabre Tactical Training Resource has taught ballistic effects to the Military and Law Enforcement Communities since 1995. ( see hits v myths ). We are currently researching new and updated data in relation to ballistic performance, and which duty ammunition is realistically effective. With the assistance of MKS and Remington Arms, AR. we are currently testing various munitions from MK Ballistics, ALS, and Guardian Protective services. Our doctrines have always been centered around the real effects of various munitions fired into, and through, numerous mediums. From personal experience of hand gun ammunition wounding effects, it can be stated that no Law Enforcement small arms round, can be completely predictable in it’s effect on a Human Being. Each event is driven by circumstances unique to that situation. Therefore ‘X’ factors are always going to be present. The term ‘Less than Lethal’ has been presented as an alternative to ‘Lethal’ munitions, currently utilized by Law Enforcement and Military Peace keeping Units. It must be clearly stated that there are no munitions that will absolutely guarantee ‘less than lethal injuries,’ and still work effectively every time. 2. The term LESS LETHAL is, in our opinion, a better description. This is what we wish to impress through this training program. Less lethals offer a bridge or gap between obviously potentially lethal munitions, and those munitions designed to cause only enough impact to stop a Subject from continuing on. Information passed from MKS AND A.L.S. Technologies, leading manufacturers of less lethals, and providers of our munitions, suggests that there have been over 4000 incidents recorded of the use of Less Lethal munitions. This has resulted in only a few recorded deaths, where the Subjects were struck center mass with multiple shots. The statistics clearly demonstrate the term less lethal is an accurate description. This one day course, is designed to teach Students core ballistic knowledge, coupled with an understanding of the component parts of various munitions, and their performance capabilities. This updated use of force training session, offers hands on application and practical usage of Less Lethal munitions, in live fire scenarios. Although the use of 37mm weapons can be taught, concentration on Field / Patrol Officer ready munitions, such as 12 gauge shotgun shells are mainly featured. These less lethal munitions are immediate available to any Officer that regularly carries a duty shotgun. 40mm training is also available. In conjunction with Field / Patrol Officers, correctional facilities are also able to utilize their existing shotguns, with little or no additional expense. Hind sight is always 20/20. Less lethals may offer an alternative. In many cases we believe that less lethal munitions may offer alternatives in scenarios that have in the past, been labeled as “Police Assisted Suicides.” In circumstances such as these Subjects may indeed be offered a second chance without placing additional risks on Personnel sent to deal with the scenario. 3. On conclusion of this course Officers are fully certified in the operational use, and technical knowledge of the capabilities of the munitions. This should enable an Officer to make a ‘ street decision’ as to the type of munitions required to be discharged. They will be able to determine what circumstances their use, is deemed appropriate, over standard issue ammunition. The course syllabus includes : One day 8 hour training syllabus. Fully bound training manuals are provided. Students should wear duty uniform or B.D.U.’s. Students should bring eye and hearing protection. Duty shotgun. Food and water for days consumption. ◊ Lawful Use of Force applications. ◊ Less lethal munitions - how they work. ◊ Weapon presentation & weapon progression. ◊ Weapon retention, tactical movements. ◊ Loading, re-loading, and crisis malfunction procedures. ◊ Single hand combat and retention techniques. ◊ Confined space conflicts & weapons usage within vehicles. ◊ Low light crisis engagement. ◊ Multiple confrontations. ◊ All less lethal munitions are supplied. 1. TACTICAL COMMAND TRAINING This is a classroom based training session held over a two / three day 16 / 24 hour session. The syllabus has been designed to incorporate a hands on practical exercise if required. The sessions are lecture and student workshop based. The syllabus also allows for a Live Exercise at the end of the course. The Student will learn new techniques for the implementation of the C.R.O.P.s containment system, and how to Plan an effective tactical response, to various critical incidents. These include counter-drug raids. All training aids and manuals are provided. Students are requested to provide additional writing paper, pens, and a dicta-phone recording device, if available. The Rescue Phone is supplied by Sabre TTRR. for training. Critical Incidents have a high demand for an organized response. Time spent on deciding on a course of action, may be vitally important, and time is never on your side. Wasted time may cost lives, and put responders in further danger. Techniques will improve response times during critical incidents. The syllabus specifically covers the below areas : ∗ S.W.A.T. response to a barricaded Suspect, and Hostage scenario. ∗ School evacuations. ∗ Toxic waste spills / Serious road traffic accidents. ∗ Crime scene preservation. ∗ Coordinated Police Sniper responses. ∗ Aircraft crash scenarios. ∗ Drug raid pre-planning. ∗ Lost / missing children rural and urban searches. ∗ Officer down scenarios. 2. cont. The training program has been designed to offer Students a structured system for first responder Supervisors, and Command band training, for Senior rank Officers, in charge of critical incidents. The program includes how to set up a critical incident briefing operational order in under 5 minutes. In order to effectively maintain control of fluid scenarios as they develop. The system is effective, and is proven. How to implement the joint responses of Tactical and Uniformed Officers, in conjunction with C.I.D. elements, and negotiation teams. The setting up of crisis tactical plans for joint Agency responses, including A.T.F. bomb squad technicians, and other agencies, such as the F.A.A. and Military commanded Units. A third day can be included, which covers in more depth pre-planned Operations, and the setting up of a major Law Enforcement response. “The cutting edge in training and research” 1. . DUTY AND TACTICAL SHOTGUN LAW ENFORCEMENT TACTICAL SHOTGUN TRAINING This system is a new and powerful concept in Law Enforcement shotgun training. The C.A.R. system offers increased Stability. This course is recognized by Remington Arms, Arkansas and approved by P.O.S.T. For many years shooters from all fields, Sport, Military, Law Enforcement, and Personal Protection Specialists have been trained on the methodology of modern day firearms techniques. These have become known as : THE COMBAT TRIAD. The Triad elements have been described as : Mind Set, Gun Handling, and Marksmanship. In support of the triad, has been the balance of : Power, Accuracy, and Speed.

In Tactical Combat, and Street Critical Confrontation scenarios, this system will out perform all main stream firearm techniques. It will improve shooting confidence in Personnel that have problems on the range, when utilizing ammunition such as solid slugs. The system combats any functional disability of the Operator due to injuries. The system aids the reduction of Body Stress, and is totally integrated for weapons ranging from hand gun, sub gun, through long guns. The system allows previously unobtainable levels of stability, weapon retention, physical confrontation, and the ability to clear weapon malfunctions during Critical Confrontation. The course syllabus includes : ◊ Lawful Use of Force applications. ◊ Less lethal munitions. ◊ Weapon presentation & weapon progression. ◊ Weapon retention. ◊ Loading, re-loading, and crisis malfunction procedures. ◊ Tactical movement, and room entries. ◊ Single hand combat and retention techniques. ◊ Confined space conflicts & weapons usage within vehicles. ◊ Low light crisis engagement. ◊ Multiple confrontations. ◊ 250 rounds of duty ammunition required. 1. F.I.R.S.T. RESPONSE FIRST INCIDENT RESPONDERS SAFETY TRAINING This syllabus has been designed and constructed to offer a training system that brings together a Multi-Agency emergency response, and improve it. It is true to say that Homeland Defense has never been more important. Separate Agencies have their own expertise, and often at the scene of a serious incident public safety requires a combined response from Law Enforcement, Fire, and Medical Personnel. Teamwork and mutual understanding is vital if maximum effectiveness is to be achieved by L.E. Should a Hostage Situation develop at a Hospital or School involving serious injury, high powered weapons, and a fire itself, all Agencies would be required to combine their expertise to save lives and property. 2. The F.I.R.S.T. Response syllabus offers Personnel the C.R.O.P.s containment system, in conjunction with Tactical Planning for S.W.A.T. and Field Patrol Officers. Teachers are also taught basic S.W.A.T. response tactics. These include coded communications for hostage scenarios. This system has its roots based on situations that have occurred in the European theater, such as Northern Ireland. There all to regularly Terrorist situations, have brought about scenarios where the Fire, Police, and Ambulance Services have had to work together, and in very dangerous or unknown circumstances. Often under continuing additional threats. The aftermath of which has carried the additional burden of evidential requirements, Coroner's Inquests, and public disorder issues. These have to be considered as separate, vital issues. Following on, in many cases has been court litigation. 3. First aid, followed by Crisis interviewing skills, are crucial factors when information collation is vital. Lack of information being available to S.W.A.T. Teams may make a devastating difference. Students are trained in obtaining information from Witnesses who may be injured, as well as in shock. The time spent on information gathering can be limited. Interviews must be effective, and time proficient. Interviewing an injured Witness can be vitally important, when attempting to piece together an accurate picture of events. Often there can be problems when injuries must be treated as a priority, but critical time factors demand a fast interview. The right questions, asked the right way, may save further lives. Mock Witnesses are utilized, displaying wounds similar to those that have been found inflicted to victims after scenarios such as explosive devices. The F.I.R.S.T. system is completely compatible with Joint Agency Responses, and has been designed specifically to deal with the aspects of : First Responder Personnel. Immediate First Aid. Setting up of an Initial Control Point or I.C.P. Tactical first response Negotiations. Information Collation, and immediate tactical planning. Public safety issues, including immediate area evacuation. Criminal investigative requirements. S.W.A.T. containment of armed and dangerous Suspects. Improvised Explosive Devices - Recognition and reaction. Media Access and Control. Recently multi - agency critical incident scenarios have highlighted difficulties with Joint Agency responses, in particular communications, and information collation. This system works in a crisis, and if deployed, will assist greatly with the Safety of all First responders, and the Public at large. 4. COURSE SYLLABUS Monday 0800 hours course commencement.

P.O.L.S.E.R. SEARCH TECHNIQUES SEARCH TECHNIQUES FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT This training course has been developed to assist Law Enforcement Personnel, and specialized Security Officers, conduct High and Low Risk search operations. These Searches are conducted for a variety of purposes. This intense course offers options for Searching in connection with : High Risk Search Low Risk Search Evidential Search Contraband Search Unknown Search Defensive Search Weapons of Mass Destruction The physical searching of a Human Being and their Home, Residence, or Conveyance, is a serious matter. It has often been a focus point for Civil Litigation, and or Law Suits in connection with a range of complaints. Often the legality of the search itself has caused the loss of a criminal case brought before a Court. In addition to many instances of injuries being caused to both Searcher and Searched Person. Any such search must be Legally Justified, or Consensual, and must follow any Laid Down guidelines issued in accordance with lawful Codes of Practice. The subsequent seizure of evidence has to be properly recorded and exhibited, in order to preserve the chain of evidence. Persons who conduct or order Searches must be aware of the appropriate codes of practice, and legislation issued in accordance with the Law. The options offered in this training manual, must only be considered if Appropriate and Lawful in the various circumstances that may be present. 2. This manual offers options based on the premise that the search is Lawful and or Consensual in its application. The course is designed to enable the Student to develop command band skills, in order to mount search operations of a tactical nature, ie. lost / missing children, as well as evidential searches. Included in the training syllabus are counter improvised explosive device, recognition, and counter anti-handling device training. These include so called ‘Dirty Bombs’ such as NBC scenario’s. Mistakes in the Classroom can be learned from. On the street, we can die from them. Recently Law Enforcement Personnel have been targeted by home made explosive booby trap devices, hidden in flashlight casings. Students are trained in recognition of such devices, their individual construction, and effects. Example of a Home Made shotgun Man-trap - a devastating implement and fortunately seized by Police before it could kill or maim. This simply made device could create havoc, death, and severe damage. Officers are taught what not to touch. More and more incidents of I.E.D.'s are being reported. Officers need the knowledge being offered through this syllabus. A home made time bomb - for anyone with a grievance and a point to make. 3. This type of device filled with simple match heads, is enough to cause death and damage. This is a very common device, and often treated very lightly. This type of device can be made in under 20 minutes. The Classic Pipe Bomb - easily recognizable But how about this! This is a complicated device, that once set in place, is hard to detect. Often the circumstances can dictate the tactics. Officers are taught to observe with a new outlook on so called, everyday items. P.O.L.S.E.R. TRAINING CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE 4. Unique to the P.O.L.S.E.R. Course syllabus is training for Non-Sterile environments. Students undergo training for searches of contaminated or non-sterile waste. Section elements are taught utilizing the A.S.P. Baton. Experience has shown that excellent intelligence can be obtained from such searches. Often vital information is simply discarded and thrown away by Criminals without a thought for security. Originally designed for Anti- Terrorist applications, P.O.L.S.E.R. is another weapon in the war on crime. Although a sometimes smelly experience, the training can bring about amazing intelligence. Often information is thrown out in the trash, that could prove vital to ongoing investigations. Masks and gloves are required items of equipment. Conducted utilizing actual trash these searches are as realistic as possible. Information is placed within each trash sack building into a comprehensive set of intelligence details. The information obtained is utilized at the end of a course, within a Role Play scenario, for Detectives and S.W.A.T. Personnel. 5. Forming part of the core curriculum is training for evidence retrieval. Within a role play scenario, unloaded firearms and simulated illegal narcotics, are thrown from a moving vehicle, along a route of up to three miles. This scenario has been designed to simulate the high speed pursuit of Criminals in a vehicle, who subsequently discard property. Students are tasked with the planning, and then the implementation of a route search, in order to retrieve any evidence subsequently found. Specific areas covered are Team Safety, and preserving Chains of evidence at the scene of the “Find.” SEARCH TECHNIQUES FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT 6. Course Requirements : This is a five day 40 hour school. Students are required to have with them suitable clothing for the time of year of the school. They will need to be self sufficient with regard to food and water for up to 12 hours. Students are required to have in their possession a search kit which should include the following items ( this list is not exhaustive.) Items required are to be utilized in order to examine a vehicle and contents, a dwelling, and to make a dig into surface soil. ∗ Set of screwdrivers ( cross and straight ) ∗ Small socket set ∗ Hammer ∗ Set of pliers ∗ Plastic evidence bags ∗ Paper evidence bags ∗ Sticky tape ∗ Flash light ∗ Coat hangers ( three made of metal ) ∗ A.S.P. Mirror or similar / A.S.P. Baton or similar ∗ Coveralls ∗ Plastic dust sheet (2) ∗ Heavy duty rubber gloves ∗ Disposable plastic gloves ∗ First aid kit ∗ Disinfectant spray ∗ Note book and pen ∗ Long stick, hoe, and shovel 1. S.C.O.P.E. URBAN SNIPER TACTICAL SNIPING FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT The S.C.O.P.E. Course has been designed and written to update current Police / Law Enforcement Snipers. It has also been designed to train S.W.A.T. Operators in Cross / Sniper tactics. This school is either run as a Basic school, or an Advanced format. The advanced format includes explosive window breaching charges, and advanced hostile target scenario’s. Often S.W.A.T. Teams train their Snipers in room entry / C.Q.B. techniques, but rarely are S.W.A.T. Members cross trained in Long Weapons usage. The basic course offers training for essentially non - snipers in the art of long weapons usage. The course also offers specialized knowledge for both Sniper / S.W.A.T Operators in covert applications. Established Snipers will learn covert insertion / camouflage techniques and sniper / co-ordination / anti sniper techniques. This course will enable Essential Personnel to operate under difficult and unexpected conditions. The S.C.O.P.E. course instructs in the covert application of long / short term observations, and the deployment of tactical incident control points. These are combined in the C.R.O.P.s syllabus. Working closely with S.W.A.T., and Negotiation units the Sniper is the ultimate tactical response. 2. This is a five or ten day school, of 60 or 120 hours duration. Due to the circumstances of this course personal creature comforts, meal times, and rest periods are not factored as fixed. Courses are catered to your requirements. All Students should be in possession of clothing, equipment, and M.R.E.s to sustain them for each 24 hour period. This is a no-nonsense school. Students will be expected to cover evening work, and additional project work. Equipment requirements : ∗ Rifle & Scope, Harris bipod an advantage, rifle should be pre-zeroed @ 200 yards ∗ 100 Rounds duty ammunition ∗ Rural and Urban Camo. ( Ghillie Suit ) ∗ Food and Water ( CamelBak an advantage ) ∗ Foul weather clothing ∗ Three black bed sheets ( kingSize ) ∗ Two pairs of black panty-hose ∗ Roll of black masking tape ∗ Roll of black para-cord ∗ Binoculars or scope ∗ Range finder ( would be an advantage ) ∗ Dark Blue note paper ∗ Sleeping bag or other type such as solar sheeting ∗ Entrenching tool / Personal knife ∗ Personal First aid kit ∗ Flashlight with red filter ∗ Waterproof ground sheet ∗ Plastic bags suitable for human waste disposal and anti-septic wipes The above list is not exhaustive but should indicate the contents of this School. 3. It is anticipated that the school will commence at 1400 hours on the Sunday before the weekdays. This is in order to ensure all weapons are pre-sighted for 100 yards ( 1 M.O.A.) ** Subject to requirements. Students will be briefed on equipment requirements, and their work schedules for the remainder of the course. It is suggested that Depts send two man teams, so that each team can rotate responsibilities. Students do not have to have previous sniper experience for this school, and rifles and ammunition can be supplied. Full written support manuals are supplied to each Student. Video film is also permitted. Students should supply two blank video cassettes. Students will be required to develop training equipment aids, with materials provided by Instructors. Students should have with them the suggested support items, however, equipment can be provided to Students, if they are unable to furnish their own.

C.U.F.F.S CORRECTIONAL UNIT & FEDERAL FACILITY SECURITY C.U.F.F.S. The C.U.F.F.S. syllabus has been selectively combined as a direct result of the needs of the Correctional Officer, and their Colleagues serving warrants and summonses at Unknown or High Risk premises. The system also concentrates on Officers working within Correctional Facilities. This training includes C.E.R.T. / S.O.R.T. Teams combating mass disturbances. This unique syllabus has been designed from the “Active Defense” system devised by Paul CASTLE. This system incorporates over 45 separate specialist Schools for Military and Law Enforcement scenarios. The “Active Defense” system devised by Paul CASTLE, has been adopted Nationwide across the U.S.A, and in Europecby Specialist Personnel. This system has been designed to work in harmony with each of the separate elements, combining to form a complete framework for the Correctional & Law Enforcement Specialist. Cell Extraction Team training forms a core section of “C.U.F.F.S” 2. Each individual element, is or has been P.O.S.T. certified, and approved by either the States of TN., TX., FL, S.C., or AR. and may be re-submitted in any form required by individual Agencies. C.E.R.T. Officers about to ‘ flashbang’ their entry into a barricaded cell This system builds confidence, and real world skills, that Personnel must have at their disposal in the ever unsure Correctional Facility environment. The attached portfolio gives details of each section, that may be featured within a selected school. Each School has been designed to offer 40 hours P.O.S.T. certified training, but can be shaped to fit individual Departmental requirements. The below programs form the basic core curriculum. ◊ LESS LETHAL MUNITIONS ◊ C.C.T. ◊ F.A.S.T. ◊ A.S.P. BATON Instructor #3159 ◊ EDGED WEAPONS DEFENSE ◊ P.O.L.S.E.R. ◊ S.T.E.P.

H&K TACTICAL SUB-MACHINE GUN This is a Pro-Active course, designed for Law Enforcement Personnel and Tactical Units that wish to utilize, what is arguably, one of the world's finest sub-machine guns. The new range of HK UMP weaponry is also included. The course is offered at Three levels 1. MP5 Operators Course 2. MP5 Progression Course 3. C.A.R. System MP5 Instructor The course syllabus and unique training concepts, are based on the C.A.R. system and have been taught to Special Forces units in Germany, and Belgium. In addition to Law Enforcement Tactical Units in the U.S.A. Techniques, and technical information developed and incorporated within this program have originated in part from liaison with Heckler & Koch in Germany, training with, and the study of the use of the weapon's systems by specialized German units such as G.S.G.9. and S.E.K. All these elements have been bought together to produce, a practical and effective training program, surpassing in many ways courses previously available to Law Enforcement. 2. The course instructs Students in the following skill areas : ◊ Technical specifications & Nomenclature. ◊ Cleaning, field stripping and maintenance. ◊ Close quarters confrontation. ◊ Team progression. ◊ Target acquisition & Multiple confrontation. ◊ Low light level usage. ◊ Malfunction and secondary weapon transition. The weapons featured include The H&K MP5 family of semi / full auto submachine guns. These well established weapons, have become the mainstay of many Law Enforcement Depts.

Sabre TTRR. is able to advise and give support, with regard to equipment purchases, and Team selection criterion. Utilizing what we consider to be the best support weaponry available. This includes less lethal munitions, and breaching tools. In support of our existing programs Sabre TTRR offers Three levels of S.W.A.T. training. Each level supports the previous course syllabus. In some cases level two courses can be utilized by existing Teams to build upon previous S.W.A.T. experience. 1. Initial team work building, weapons skills, and curriculum core fundamentals. (see below list.) 2. Team progression and continuous flow, building on the established training concepts from level one core curriculum. Extending Students abilities to high levels of expertise. 3. Tactical development of Team members to 'Team Commander' level. Progressing skills, and establishing Command Band experience Level three courses combine the training concepts from levels one and two. Students train to the highest levels of understanding. This course instructs in the planning of high risk operations. In the collation of evidence, and intelligence gathering. Culminating in the tactical implementation of the S.W.A.T. operational task itself. 3.

Dynamic entry training forms a core curriculum of the “Active - Defense” S.W.A.T. training syllabus. Students are trained in real world room entry scenarios, utilizing the latest distraction & door breaching devices available. This training school prepares Teams for the A.C.E. Accelerated Explosive Entry school which deploys the full range of entry charges. Specific attention is paid to live ammunition shooting, as this is believed to be the only method of developing close quarters combat skills. Failure is not an option available at Sabre TTRR Maximum safeguards are implemented. Full use of ballistic shields are incorporated into the syllabus. The shield is an absolute must for S.W.A.T. Teams, when entering unknown threat scenarios. 5. Ballistic Shield training incorporating the C.A.R. stance is proving to be the new force in tactical entry for S.W.A.T. Teams. Combined with the Remington Arms new 1187p tactical assault shotgun the Shield Team is a valued asset. Sabre TTRR can provide all shotguns required. The C.A.R. system develops a large S.W.A.T. team’s tactical capabilities for working in very confined spaces. Utilizing the Tactical Shield, a Team can increase its protection up to, and during preparation for, a building or vehicle assault. Sabre Inc. offers training that increases Team confidence. Utilizing any form of explosive entry will increase the risk factor. Officers are taught how to deploy devices, and to their best effect. 1. C.A.R. Center Axis Re-Lock LAW ENFORCEMENT C.B.E.S. FIREARMS TRAINING This system is a new and powerful concept in Law Enforcement firearms training. Although a small word, its significance is Stability. For many years 'Shooters' from all fields, Sport, Military, Law Enforcement, and Personal Protection Specialists have been trained on the methodology of modern day firearms techniques. These have become known as : THE COMBAT TRIAD. The Triad elements have been described as : Mind Set, Gun Handling, and Marksmanship. In support of the triad, has been the balance of : Power, Accuracy, and Speed. In a Law Enforcement application all these elements need to come together, when dealing with a task, or a critical confrontation. The C.A.R. concepts bring together these elements in a new and unique manner. Now Operators may have to wear full N.B.C. Hazmat environment suits in live combat scenarios. The C.A.R. system has been developed over a long period of time by CASTLE. Born from a true understanding of how our bodies work during combat crisis. The system was developed for true close quarter combat, and not a rehash of old techniques that the C.A.R. system is now replacing. This system simply "works." The system offers the Operator a higher level of Weapon Retention, than existing techniques to date. These new concepts allow the Operator to achieve high degrees of movement, speed, and an enhanced Shooting Platform, giving additional speed and accuracy on demand during a Crisis. These actions are performed while wearing in excess of 100 lbs of equipment. 2. The techniques utilized through this concept, are equally effective when using small arms, through to long guns. This is achieved by building on the Operator's Harmonious Muscle placement and Natural Body stance. Pictures are shown with SWAT Operator wearing Closed Air System only. Note the shooting position does not interfere with full tactical vests, and breathing equipment. These techniques are adaptable, in that the Operator may adopt either Small Arms or Long Guns as the primary weapon. Opting for a transition to a secondary weapon, if the situation requires it. From a side stance, note that the Operator’s weapon does not extend out past his body silhouette. This allows integration from one mode of weapon to another, without changing body stance, or shooting positioning. Once learned these concepts will be a usable asset at all times & for all weapons. This unique system was developed in Europe by the course Instructor Paul CASTLE. The system enhances weapon readiness, holster release, speed and accuracy, as never before. The system simply works better than any other system previously available for Law Enforcement and Military Personnel. Radical in appearance, once trained in the system it’s sheer effectiveness is outstanding. 3. The C.A.R. . 1995 ( Center Axis Relock ) introduces a Fundamental Change to firearms training. This new and revolutionary system surpasses in many ways, both the Isosceles & Weaver stances that have been taught over the last two decades. In Tactical Combat, and Hazardous Environment Critical Confrontation scenarios, this system will out perform all main stream firearm techniques. It will improve shooting confidence in Personnel that have problems on the range, and has been proven to increase Officer shooting proficiency in combat. The system combats any functional disability of the Operator due to CQB injuries. The system aids the reduction of Body Stress, and is totally integrated for weapons ranging from hand gun, sub gun, shotgun, through long guns. The system allows previously unobtainable levels of stability, weapon retention, physical confrontation. In addition to the ability to clear weapon malfunctions during Critical Confrontation. All while wearing full BIO - HAZMAT suits. No other training technique available can achieve these results The course syllabus includes : ◊ Lawful Use of Force applications. ◊ Weapon presentation. ◊ Weapon progression. ◊ Drawn weapon retention. ◊ Loading, re-loading, and crisis malfunction procedures. ◊ Tactical movement, and room entries. ◊ Single hand combat and retention techniques. ◊ Confined space conflicts. ◊ Weapons usage within hazardous environments. ◊ Low light crisis engagement. ◊ Multiple confrontations. ◊ BDU clothing may be worn with body armor under the Hazmat Suit. ◊ 500 rounds of duty ammunition is required for the course.
