PROVO, Utah – Sept. 17, 2014 – Action Target concluded its 22nd Law Enforcement Training Camp (LETC) on Friday. More than 120 law enforcement firearms instructors from locations all over the US as well as Canada, Australia and Brazil attended this year’s training held at the company’s headquarters in Provo, Utah.

LETC attendees received training on reflexive firearms techniques, how to shoot on the move, effective combat communication and training practices for more efficient learning.

The training camp, which first began in 1991, is taught by world-renowned trainers from organizations like Safariland Shooting School and Team Spartan Tactical Training and focuses on teaching advanced skills for law enforcement firearms instructors. Those instructors can then take those skills back to their individual departments and teach others.

“For more than 20 years, LETC has been a staple of the Action Target culture,” company co-founder Addison Sovine said. “Our mission has always been to provide the tools and training necessary to help law enforcement officers perform their duties to the best of their abilities and to get home safely every night. This training camp is the epitome of that mission.”
