Future law enforcement officers were on the range this morning honing the skills needed to keep them safe when they’re on the streets. Cadets from the Mercyhurst Municipal Police Training Academy were at Gem City Gun Club going through different scenarios they might encounter on the streets.

The cadets were put through a stress test moving several heavy items then thaey would advance on a target. This trains them in the event of a foot chase and then exchange of gunfire.

Cadets were also trained on targets, an exercise used for eye coordination in a rapid fire scenario. Mercyhurst trains the majority of police officers in the region.
