reluctant to contact violent offenders because they are afraid of prosecution for difficult split-second decisions. How do we balance public service and officer safety? We will be taking a look at old methodologies and training programs that have caused "scars" on the psyche of public safety personnel. Discussions will involve the "Use of Force" continuum model, techniques for physical force, and testing your program to the ethos of "Are you range or real?" Chris Dunn & Kevin Lewis Sponsored by: 10:45–11:45 AM Using Reflex Sights on LE Handguns Marcello 4505–4506 | LE04 This presentation will address the concept of using reflex sights on law enforcement handguns to include tactical and officer safety advantages, costs and training/policy considerations attendant to an agency making this transition for its Special Teams/Patrol Officers. Frank J. Martello Sponsored by: 1:30–2:30 PM Optics to Increase Survivability for Law Enforcement Officers in Unpredictable Environments LE12 Much like the battlefields that troops fight in across the globe, the terrain in which our law enforcement officers will engage targets is often unpredictable. A typical engagement can take place in open, wooded or urban terrain. Sometimes, officers can find themselves in all of these types of terrain in a single day. There are optics available that can meet the marksmanship needs for all scenarios and will better protect the lives of law enforcement officers across the country. Daniel Pettry Sponsored by: ® ® WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23 8:15–9:15 AM Using Reflex Sights on LE Handguns Marcello 4404–4405 | LE06 This presentation will address the concept of using reflex sights on law enforcement handguns to include tactical and officer safety advantages, costs and training/policy considerations attendant to an agency making this transition for its Special Teams/Patrol Officers. Frank J. Martello Sponsored by: 8:15–10:15 AM Counter Ambush: Care Under Fire (Super Session) Marcello 4505–4506 | LE10 This is a demonstration-heavy seminar that will highlight the fusion of drone technology with tactical field operations. Critical information is vital for every part of an agency's active shooter prevention and response program. We will demonstrate how drones can not only provide real- time intelligence so that officers can take decisive actions, but can also be used as a critical care delivery device. Mike Briant Sponsored by: 9:30–10:30 AM Top Tactical Concepts for Law Enforcement Operations Marcello 4404–4405 | LE07 This course will present many of the top 20 tactical concepts that are important for every officer, team member, team leader and team commander. These concepts are applicable to patrol critical incidents and SWAT operations. The concepts will be delivered through the use of lecture, class discussion, incident debriefs and videos. Students will come away with a better appreciation of concepts such as safety priorities, officer jeopardy, opportunity, the 4 Cs, space and time, tactical pause, tactical aim points, soft skills (de-escalation), and scenario-based/integrated training. Dave Pearson Sponsored by: IN PARTNERSHIP WITH: 2019 LEEP SESSIONS PRODUCED BY: Troy Acoustics ® ® 10:45 AM–12:15 PM Law Enforcement Precision Marksmanship Marcello 4404–4405 | LE08 In this session, a panel of experts will discuss the importance of the law enforcement precision marksman/sniper. Topics will include case studies, considerations for selecting a specific rifle and optic, ammunition/trajectories/ballistics, and signature reduction. The material covered in this session is relevant to all law enforcement agencies that serve in urban, suburban and rural communities. Scott Javins, Jon Skubis, Justin Walker Sponsored by: 10:45 AM–12:15 PM Projectile Selection Based on Active Threat Marcello 4505–4506 | LE11 We will be deep diving into the method and process that goes into determining what projectile to use based on specific scenarios. Planning, tactics, environmental factors and ballistics knowledge are key in selecting the right projectile for the mission. Mark will discuss new projectile technologies vs. traditional projectiles to include designs, materials and performance, including barrier blind and AP. Mark will also discuss the advantages of the 300 Blackout cartridge compared to the widely used .223 Remington. He will briefly touch on the advantages of lightweight, polymer cased ammunition as well. Mark Taylor Sponsored by: 1:30–2:30 PM Shooting Range Acoustics Marcello 4404–4405 | LE09 Bill Bergiadis Sponsored by: Troy Acoustics
