Tactical Week


The State Preparedness Training center in Oriskany held the third annual Tactical Week were several SWAT teams and police departments from across the state came to hone their skills. The scenarios were based off of real life situations, meant to put these officers into dangerous and challenging scenarios with no real imminent threat. New York City Police Departments Emergency Services Unit was also on hand in order to help give advice to those running the scenarios.
Although the week was intended to be a training week, the teams also competed against each other to have the best scores by the end of the week.
