LE Designated Marksman Instructor Course

American law enforcement has recognized the need for the superior accuracy and firepower associated with the tactical long gun. Seen as a tool for SWAT operators in the past, patrol officers are the new “First Responder” to these incidents. The Safariland Training Group Instructor level training supports that mission. This course is designed for the serious shooter who is interested in the precision application of scoped rifles under a variety of circumstances.
