Description: ISTP is a two-day training event that will focus on Emergency Vehicle Operations (EVO), Defensive Tactics (DT), Officer Safety (OS) and Firearms Training Exercises (FTX).  Each class will be offered twice to help agencies in balancing class requirements, yet still provide adequate staffing to meet other scheduling needs.  FTX will be a six-hour course.  EVO will be taught in three-hour blocks in conjunction with DT and OS..


Emergency Vehicle Operations:  This is a three-hour course.  Officers will attend either the morning or afternoon session and attend the DT course during the opposite period of instruction.  This course is required before attending NMLETG Advance Driving courses.  Instruction will include emergency vehicle operation, precision driving, and vehicular pursuit techniques.  Officers will be briefed on the Below 100 Program to enhance safety and reduce line-of-duty deaths.

Defensive Tactics (DT) Level One:  DT Level One is a three-hour course.  In this session officers will be instructed on DT training consisting of verbal and physical instruction of the techniques vital to today’s law enforcement officer’s safety.  Instruction will include verbal, static, and dynamic instruction that allows officers to build confidence through a proactive hands-on approach to handcuffing, searching, weapons retention/takeaways, physical escapes, takedowns, and strikes and counter-strikes.  This is a dynamic learning environment with emphasis placed strongly on each officer’s safety.
