Large venues with thousands of people have always been a potentially big target. From concerts to sports games, where theres people in mass the threat of terrorist attacks or unrest exists. We’ve seen it in the movies, at political events or wherever VIPs are present there’s a sniper on the roof keeping watch, that’s not fiction. Law enforcement precision shooters keep watch at many large events across the country. Those law enforcement snipers get their training at the “Police Sniper Response to a Public Venue” course from the Texas Tactical Police Officer Association, A.K.A TTPOA.
Only the cream of the crop from police agencies from around the country attend, check out the videos below of the four-day course.
