Course Description: 

The Special Reaction Team (SRT) Course is designed to provide DoD Law Enforcement Service Members and Civilians a tactical response capability to resolve critical situations that otherwise exceed the capabilities of traditional Military Police Law Enforcement.

The SRT Course focuses on close combat marksmanship, breaching methods, vehicle interdictions, room entry, and building clearing tactics techniques and procedures (TTP).

Instructed in both classroom and decisive action training environment the SRT Course uses extensive live fire and force on force practical exercises to reinforce training and instill critical thinking in the employment SRT TTP’s.

Upon successful completion of the SRT Course the student will be trained to evaluate and employ the ideal tactical response to resolve high-risk incidents (such as active threats, barricaded subjects, high-risk warrants, hostage situations, and law enforcement searches and raids) requiring increased capabilities and specialized tactics.


Units requiring Special Reaction Team training at their location may request a Mobile Training Team (MTT). This request should be routed through the MACOM to Headquarters, Department of the Army, ATTN: G3 DAMO-ODO Provost Marshal Desk, 400 Army Pentagon, Washington, DC 20310. Every attempt to fill vacant seats should be made prior to requesting an MTT. Units requesting to host an MTT must make available all training assets required (Ranges, Shoot Houses, CACTIF/MOUT, Explosive Breaching facilities) to insure successful completion of all TTP’s required for graduation.
