APD Pistol Training

Posted: Updated:


ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--Police officers sometimes have to make split-second decisions that can mean life or death. That's why programs like "Lights, Sights and Lasers" teaches them the skills they need to make those decisions. 


The program is a national training session taught to law enforcement officers from across the state here in Alexandria. The high-speed training is conducted under low-light conditions in close quarters to improve reaction time.


"The goal here is to train officers better, to make better decisions under those adverse conditions so they see and understand what's in front of them and how to deal with it better and more effectively," Wes Doss of Khyber Training Group said.

This was the third stop on this year's tour.  they go on to New Jersey from here and will wrap up in Arizona in October.
