MORE THAN A RIDE TO THE FIGHT | PART 1
THE NEED FOR ONGOING DRIVER TRAINING AND SKILL MAINTENANCE
By Anthony J. Shepard, CPP – PFC Training
Advanced skill development and maintenance are integral components of the training process at many if not all the most highly regarded agencies, departments and/or specialized units within the law enforcement community. The same can be said for certain private sector entities, ranging from proprietary corporate security departments to contract security firms, particularly those that protect critical infrastructure, where the inherent risk requires a high level of proficiency in detecting and responding to a myriad of threats. Within these very same agencies, departments or units are those individuals that are driven, seemingly to the point of obsession, with improving their tactical and technical proficiency in any number of relevant areas or disciplines. Despite the ribbing these “gym monsters”, “range junkies” and “dojo dragons” are known to draw, there is certainly ample evidence to prove that they are the enlightened ones not vice versa. Over the years numerous research studies have proven that the most effective solution to maintaining proficiency with regard to perishable skills is periodic refresher training. More importantly, anecdotal evidence borne out of numerous violent or potentially deadly encounters has proven that the higher the proficiency level of the officer or agent the more likely they are to prevail at the moment when it means the most – when lives are on the line and time is of the essence.
