N.C. SWAT Team Trains with Marines Special Unit

October 10, 2012  | 

All 15 members of the Lincoln County (N.C.) Sheriff's SWAT team, including 14 deputies and one tactical officer with Emergency Medical Services, recently joined with three other state law enforcement agencies in enduring an intense, five-day tactical training session alongside the Marine’s Special Response Team (SRT) at Camp Lejeune.

"It was the best free training we could receive anywhere," said Sheriff David Carpenter. "They trained from the best."

Each day, the agencies underwent between eight and 12 hours of training including dodging simunition – nonlethal training ammunition rounds — inside the military base's "million-dollar city," an area filled with houses, banks, condominiums, schools and other facilities typically found within a community.

Agencies should seek out more training like this. The military has loads of money for training and always enjoy training with local law enforcement.
