On Tuesday night the Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constables Office Citizens Academy was involved in a shoot don’t shoot class at the East Montgomery County Annex. Precinct 4 puts on two 10-week classes a year and there is usually a waiting list to get in. The one night a week class takes students through every aspect of law enforcement. The weekly classes host judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, detectives and training officers to take them through the steps almost as a law enforcement officer but on a much smaller scale. It is not a certification class but more of a educational class to help citizens better understand officers jobs and what they are up against. Tuesday night a “Shoot Don’t Shoot” class was held. Each student is put through two scenarios and must make split second decisions on how to react. They do not have Tasers but only a blank gun. The first scenario is a traffic stop in which the student must handle the situation before it goes bad. The second is a disturbance call, one of the most dangerous responses to law enforcement and one of the top calls on the list in which officers are killed. Watch the video as the students are put through the paces.
