Urban Shield is NOT about Training Officers

Video from Berkeley Police Review Commission meeting 6/13/18.

Check out the response to the questions of where officers get the training they need to go to the Urban Shield competition. It appears that officers get trained BEFORE they go to the competition. Urban Shield "training" is really the opportunity to DEMONSTRATE their training.

“So we have SWAT schools, POST (Peace Officer Standards and Training), standardized SWAT schools that people go to. Standardized California training classes. It’s an accumulation of skills.” – Lt. Angela Hawk at PRC Mtg June 13 in response to the question of where officers get their training in preparation for the games. (Check approx. 48 minutes into the video.)
