IACP to hold firearms enforcement training
The Alexandria, Va.-based International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) will hold two training sessions in May on enforcing gun laws. The training will focus on illegal firearms trafficking and street level enforcement.
The two-day Advanced Session Investigation Track will be held May 8 and 9 in Richmond, Va. Based on the ATF’s Firearms Trafficking Techniques Course with elements from IACP’s Firearms Trafficking Investigation & Interdiction Technical Assistance Program, the course covers characteristics of armed persons, firearms identification, courtroom testimony and suspect debriefing.
The one-day Street Enforcement Track will be held May 9 in Richmond and May 10 in Fredericksburg, Va. Aimed at increasing officer safety, the track will cover street-level enforcement tactics, courtroom testimony, vehicle stops and firearms laws.
To register, contact Yvonne Day at the IACP Research Center at 800-843-4227 ext. 837 or at [email protected]. Registrants must include their rank, name and agency, specify which track they want to attend, and an e-mail address for confirmation with the subject line “Richmond PSN.” An agenda, directions and other information will be sent with the confirmation notice.
