Police snipers perform an integral role in tactical operations. However, many people in the industry, team leaders, trainers, and even the snipers themselves often don't know what those roles actually are. They believe the legends, and fall for the "sniper voodoo" that permeates the community. The American Sniper Association has made an important part of its mission the education of the sniper community, using science, history and research to teach the real world of police sniping. This presentation will utilize collected data and numerous case studies to dispel the mythology, and to give snipers the information they will need to train for their future missions.
