Episode-1118- Lou Hayes on 6 Core Tactical Skills
Summary: TweetLou Hayes of theillinoismodel.com Lou Hayes is a full-time municipal police officer (15yrs), SWAT officer (13yrs) and trainer (12yrs). He sits on a large Statewide tactical officers organization. Lou provides instructions on weapons, tactics, law, command, rescue, active shooter response and area searches (K9). He and his partner have developed a fully-integrated system to train these items together, rather than in isolated fragments. Lou and his partner teach these as part of a program around the State to various police trainers and officers. Today we discuss six core tactical team skills. They are: Priority of Fire CrossFire Flanking Cover-Maneuver Back-to-Back Cross-Clearing. These six skills are the root of ALL team movements, formations, or positions. They are combined into applications such as: patrolling, bounding overwatch, room entry, building clearing, searching, perimeter functions, site security. These team skills are being applied to preppers trying to train small communities of shooters who plan to work together on security or post-SHTF living. Today we compare these six skills to “simple machines” (wedge, screw, wheel and lever) that combine into all other machines.
