Crowd Management/Mobile Field Force
Enhanced Mobile Field Force Training
Featuring a proliferation of small- to large-scale riots, the Safariland Training Group’s Crowd Management/Mobile Field Force program meets the needs of agencies that are tasked with crowd control. With classroom and practical application, this four-day course is for everyone from the patrolman to the supervisor, covering all aspects of dealing with situations from an orderly protest to a large-scale riot.
The course includes some hands-on applications, but is mainly classroom-based. The course covers planning, preparedness, staging and deployment of a crowd management force, with an emphasis on modern mobile field force and chemical agent deployment tactics, including some drills with inert less-lethal munitions. Throughout the course, real-world incidents will be reviewed and students will determine what went well and what didn’t.

- History of riotous behavior
- Demonstrator tactics
