The Basics  

When officers do well it's inevitably because they have kept true to the training they were given.

Just Take a Deep Breath  

In time, and with practice, you can apply your breathing practice as a response to stress and to help with emotional regulation even when responding to high-priority radio calls and after critical incidents.

Maintaining Focus  

Focus is all about concentrating on what's important, being in the present, and not letting anything distract you. Of course, that's a lot easier said than done.

VIMA to Present SHOT Show 2017 Session on How to Enhance Tactical Performance with Improved Vision

According to VIMA, Rev training enhances the user's sensory skills by removing milliseconds of visual information. "Think of it like resistance training for your brain," the company says. "As the Rev lenses strobe, your brain is forced to work with less, making decisions and reacting in a hyper-efficient way. You react faster and more accurately because you’re anticipating the movement instead of witnessing it."

Action Target&#39;s Track Runner heavy-duty track-mounted moving target system is designed for more permanent range installations. Unlike portable systems where the target is suspended from a steel cable, targets used with the Track Runner are mounted to a trolley that runs on a special track mounted close to the ground. This approach is ideal for realistic tactical applications because the target can move to different locations, change speed and direction, and dart in and out of cover. Action Target is now officially ISO 9001:2008 certified.</p>
