Reality Based Training

The Delhi Police Training Division held a one day Reality Based Training (RBT) practical class on Thursday, October 7, at the Charles D. Cook Fire Training Center in Hamden.

 

The purpose of this class is to place responding officers in realistic situations that they encounter on a regular basis while on duty. 

Live role players act as victims, suspects and innocent bystanders. Only non-lethal training ammunition firearms are used and safety is the number one priority. All individuals involved wear heavy clothing and protective helmets/face masks.

 

Instructors stress oral communication skills and verbal de-escalation techniques to respond to all the scenarios, with physical force and/or deadly physical force as a last resort.

 

Agencies from all over NYS attended. Lead instructors were Sgt. Brian Davis, Off. Logan Wood, Off. Zach Finch and Off. Justin Mohr. Thanks is given to the American Medical Rescue (AMR) ambulance for taking part in this training.

NYS-DCJS Firearms Instructor Course

Sgt. Chris Erwin, a deputy with the Delaware Co. Sheriff’s office, is seen going through a specialized course of fire during the recent NYS-DCJS Firearms Instructor Course held at the James Small Firing Range in Delhi. This course was a multi-faceted dynamic moving drill, with shoot-no shoot decision making situations, lateral moving targets, up-down threats and shooting from unconventional positions. It was a timed course with magazine exchanges required, and working through malfunctions caused by dummy rounds.
 

Overall scoring was based on time, number of hits per shots fired, not hitting any “good guys”, proper use of cover and sound, fundamental tactics.

Sgt. Erwin took top gun honors during this exercise.
