  • Sniper/Observer Course for Illinois Officers

    An officer on my squad has developed a sniper course and is instructing it through the IL. LE Training and Standards Board MTU 9. His name is Curtis Werries and he has been a guest instructor at the FBI sniper school at the FBI regional training facility in North Chicago.

    The course runs from October 8-12, 2007 at the PASA Park Range, Barry, IL. (PASA hosts many national firearms events and has a 600 yard rifle range) For more information about the course, contact your training officer, MTU Director, or you can contact our Training and Accreditation Manager, Bob Mehl at the Quincy Police Department 217-228-4487 or [email protected]

    The course is designed to teach basic and advanced sniper tactics to police officers. Expect to spend 12 hours or more per day training in whatever weather conditions the day presents. Portions will be physically demanding. Only accurate and reliable rifle systems should be brought.

    Course Topics include Role of the sniper, nomenclature, sights, minutes of angle, marksmanship fundamentals, moving targets, shooting through glass, camouflage and concealment, route planning and movement, positions, observation, diagramming, approaches, range estimation, urban and vehicle hides, use of force, ballistics, data books, sniper/counter sniper operations, and much more.
