Here is something you might not know of Olympia Fields Police Department...
We train in our firearms every month of the year. We qualify in our handguns and rifles. Every month our professional Range Officer's, Officer Dan Kickert and Officer Riley Mayer work with the officers qualifying and running them through training courses.
Each month our training is held at different locations. In the summer season we hold our training outside. During the winter we are training in an indoor range. Some months our Range Officers switch it up and hold "Patrol Tactics and Room Entry", with the assistance of our SWAT Officer, Gabe Alvarado, at our police station and "Virtra Simulator" training held in Homewood, IL. Virtra simulator training is technology software and scenarios that provide intense training for de-escalation, judgemental use of force, marksmanship, and related training that mimics real world situations.
Happy Thursday from the Olympia Field Police Officers at the Range!
