Cook County Emergency Management and Regional Security in cooperation with the Illinois Tactical Officers Association, the Cicero Police Department and Cicero School District 99, is pleased to offer this dynamic training opportunity for Cook County Police Departments:


Cicero, IL: November 27 – December 1, 2023

This five day, 40-hour Instructor course has been designed to train officers as instructors to teach Rapid Deployment – Active Threat Response Tactics & Techniques. The focus of this program will be to provide officers with the knowledge, specialized tactical skills, and associated printed materials they will need to develop, implement, and teach Rapid Deployment to their officers.

Rapid Deployment – Active Threat Response is the swift and immediate deployment of law enforcement resources to an ongoing, life-threatening “Active Threat” type of situation. These situations require immediate action and the rapid deployment of patrol officers. Failure to act could have catastrophic consequences resulting in death and/or great bodily harm to innocent people. These incidents may also necessitate the immediate and rapid deployment of patrol personnel to contain and prevent the escape of an armed and dangerous offender or rescue a downed officer and/or civilian. Topics to be addressed include:

  • 5/4/3/2 Officer Team Movement Techniques and Tactics
  • Solo Officer Movement Techniques and Tactics
  • Pistol & Patrol Rifle Deployment and Handling Skills
  • Room Clearing and Building Security
  • Integrated Tactics
  • Contact & Rescue Team Techniques and Tactics
  • Use of Force and Safety Priorities
  • Equipment and Identification Requirements
  • Team Leader Responsibilities
  • First Responder Supervisor Responsibilities
  • Tactical Emergency Medical Care – Self Aid / Buddy Aid

COSTFree – Grant Funded Through Cook County Emergency Management and Regional Security

After completing a registration form you will receive a confirmation email. Detailed course information will be provided once you are registered and confirmed as a course attendee.


    This is an opportunity for tactical officers to gather together to compare ideas and experiences. Through education and networking, it was hoped that high-risk operations requiring the use of a tactical team would be made safer.
