Law Enforcement Academy Conducts Advanced Firearms Training
Ogeechee Technical College

The Ogeechee Technical College Law Enforcement Academy (LEA) recently concluded its Advanced Firearms class at the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office Range Complex in Savannah, GA. 

The intense four day course seeks to improve the shooting skills of police officers who are faced with deadly force scenarios. The training included numerous skill drills and reality based shooting scenarios designed to challenge the student officers. Officers were required to obtain a score of 90% or higher on the Georgia Standardized Qualification Course in order to pass the course.

According to Jim Mitchell, Ogeechee Technical College LEA Director, “Our goal is to take officers who already shoot well and make them better. Sometimes we get folks who need a little more work than others, but everyone leaves having vastly improved their skills.“

Chatham County Sheriff’s Deputy, Tim Capps, said, “I’ve taken this course before elsewhere, and this one is hands down the better version. “

The class is a required course for the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council’s Advanced Peace Officer Certification.
