NGU hosts GLOCK training for Law Enforcement
North Greenville University's Department of Campus Security hosted GLOCK training on Tuesday, April 29 for its campus security officers as well as law enforcement officers from across the southeast.
GLOCK provides professional training to law enforcement, military, licensed security and other personnel who desire to utilize the GLOCK "Safe Action" system to its maximum potential. Armorer, Advanced Armorer, Instructor Workshop and G18 Select-Fire classes are available to provide information and recommendations for the safe, responsible and effective use of GLOCK handguns and other products.
GLOCK pistols are used by many law enforcement agencies around the world and these classes are held throughout the United States and Canada. Courses include both classroom and live-fire range training.
"We hosted the Certified Armorer's Course this week," said Rick Morris, NGU Chief of Campus Security. "The course is designed to train as Certified Glock Armorers which teaches how to trouble shoot and repair Glock firearms, as well as how to perform annual inspections and maintenance on the firearms."
The course at NGU was attended by law enforcement officers from around the southeast and Class Three Federal Firearms license holders.Alan Ramsey, a thirty year law enforcement veteran and Director of Training for Glock Professional and the Glock Shooting Sports Foundation, instructed the course.
Of the eight NGU uniformed officers, one attended the training. Two others are already certified armorers.
"This training is just another piece in the overall training program we have implemented here at NGU Campus Security. Our officers train approximately eight to fifteen hours a month on all facets of law enforcement skills, techniques and procedures. It mirrors the curriculum of the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy," said Morris. "We cover everything from search and seizure, firearms training and qualifying monthly, criminal domestic violence, traffic stops, drug and alcohol enforcement, active shooter response and intervention, officer survival, physical protection tactics, warrants, court room procedures, and investigations."
NGU's Campus Security officers train along with Greenville County Sheriff's Office and Travelers Rest Police Department, and have had instructors from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and other law enforcement agencies.
"Our department strives to be proactive and as current as possible with regard to training and seeks to be seen as a leader in campus security procedures and protocol among our peers around the state and region," said Morris.
