Tactical Training

The Advanced/In-Service training division of the Macomb Criminal Justice Training Center offers Tactical Training to prepare selected sworn police personnel with additional skills and training necessary to handle high-risk situations best left to the specialists.

From search warrant execution to high-risk entry teams, Tactical Training emphasizes teamwork among department members. Training is provided in all aspects of tactical operations: command, containment, deployment, negotiations, sniper and entry techniques.
