Armor Research Company, Inc., RDI Training & Consulting Group, and Uvalde PD Collaborate and Launch Tactical Shield Solo Operator Course in Uvalde, TX

UVALDE, TX — January, 2024


Armor Research Company, a leading innovator in tactical solutions, has joined forces with RDI Training & Consulting Group and the Uvalde Police Department to introduce an unprecedented training initiative aimed at enhancing the capabilities of law enforcement officers in responding to active shooter incidents. The Tactical Shield Solo Operator Course, which commenced in Uvalde, TX in January 2024, represents a groundbreaking collaboration focused on elevating officer knowledge, skills, confidence, and the overall effectiveness of solo responses to critical situations. 

Training Objectives: 

The primary goal of the Tactical Shield Solo Operator Course is to equip officers with specialized skills and knowledge required for effective and decisive action when facing active shooter scenarios. Recognizing the increasing frequency of such incidents, this collaborative effort aims to ensure that officers in Uvalde, TX, are well-prepared and possess the confidence to handle these high-stress situations with precision and skill. 

Key Features of the Course: 

Comprehensive Tactical Shield Training: Participants will undergo rigorous training in the proper handling, deployment, and maneuvering of tactical shields. This includes both ballistic and non-ballistic shield techniques to create a well-rounded and adaptable skill set. 

Scenario-based Simulations: The course includes realistic, scenario-based simulations to immerse officers in simulated active shooter situations. This hands-on approach allows officers to apply their training in a controlled environment, fostering better decision-making skills under pressure. Solo Response Strategies: Unlike traditional group responses, this course is specifically designed for solo officers. It focuses on strategies that enable a single officer to effectively neutralize threats and protect themselves and others until additional support arrives.
