Tactical units from across the state converged on Lancaster, PA to take part in the Pennsylvania Tactical Officers Association (PATOA) Conference’s vendor show and training course earlier this week. Patriot3’s MARS RDD Elevated Tactics System was used in the Advanced SWAT Tactics course, in which officers from various agencies were able to conduct multiple 2nd & 3rd floor entries into windows and over balconies safer and faster than traditional methods. MPO Mescan and Det. Nicholas with Pittsburgh Police SWAT taught officers the benefits of elevated dynamic entries and different perspectives/tactics during hostage rescues and barricaded suspect situations. We would like to thank the PATOA board members and staff as well as Lancaster County SERT (this years host agency) for another great conference. Already looking forward to 2017!
