Rescuing hostages and entering homes of barricaded suspects safely were techniques exercised by 12 law enforcement officers and paramedics in a basic SWAT school last week at the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office.

The intensive 50-hour class allowed the officers and paramedics to learn basic combat tactics, said sheriff’s Sgt. Chris Kauffman, one of the school’s instructors.

“They learned hostage rescues while dealing with a vehicle, dynamic entry techniques and tactical shooting,” Kauffman said. “It was physically strenuous and challenging, mentally and physically.”

Officers and paramedics learned the skills to handle special situations and high response service. The class serves as the foundation of tactical training for the next few years.
