The Olathe Police Department hosted a summer camp for Public Safety Academy students focused on Law Enforcement and Olathe Police Explorers. The five day camp was held at the Olathe Police Department and the Public Safety Acadmey facility at Olathe West High School.
Campers learned how to safely handle firearms, defensive tactics and how and when to use appropriate levels of force to overcome a resisting subject. Campers applied what they learned in scenarios with role players and the firearms simulator.
Campers had a day at the police range and practiced live fire exercises with police rifles and handguns under the supervision of police instructors.
Campers also practiced with the Olathe Tactical Support Unit and learned how to rescue an injured officer.
