ACADEMY FIREARMS TRAINING

The decision to use lethal force may be one of the toughest decisions a trooper has to make in their career.  For this reason, recruits have to complete 156 hours of firearms training.  The training consists of many elements.  Those elements include weapons identification, familiarization with assault weapons, mental preparation, use of force, learning applicable state statutes, learning department policy and completing the weapons qualifications course.
