Tactical training classes still available

There is still time to sign up for two Advanced Female Tactical Training sessions on Oct. 22-26 at several locations in Orange Beach.

These workshops, sponsored by CSU and the Orange Beach (Ala.) Police Department, will offer females in law enforcement unarmed and armed training. Defensive tactics instructor Amy Foster, a 20-year veteran of law enforcement, and Dorcia Meador, a retired police officer, will be the instructors. This pair was very popular with students in the first tactical training classes conducted in April.

The first workshop, set for Oct. 22-24, will address defense tactics needed in an armed situation and focus on firearms skills. Cost is $300 for CSU students, alumni and members of learning partners.


A second workshop on Oct. 25-26 features close-quarters combat training for women in law enforcement. Attendees will learn about escort and control holds, controlled take-downs, knife defense and other methods of dealing with controlling subjects in possibly aggressive situations. This unarmed course costs $225 for CSU students, alumni and members of learning partners to attend.
