Bartlett, Derrick
Tactical Vision - SWAT Edition

Most police officers do not realize they are essentially blind. They believe the myth of being trained observers, when the reality is they see only a small percentage of the world around them at any given time. They also see it slower and with much less accuracy than they would be comfortable knowing. All of this compromises their effectiveness and their safety as SWAT officers.

Tactical Vision is a course like no other. It will systematically explain how the visual systems work, examining and explaining their capabilities and limitations. It will show students how this affects their training and mission readiness. And finally, it will show them how to train the most important component of their physical skills, their eyes. This is a class that literally has to be seen to be believed.
