CQRT training set

The City Quick Response Team in Dumaguete  City will receive more advanced training on marksmanship to enhance their shooting skills and confidence  in responding to high-risk situations like bank robberies at Camp Francisco Fernandez in Agan-an Sibulan.

City  PNP chief, Supt. Crisaleo Tolentino, said the tactical carbine, M-16, and pistol class training  for CQRT members  aims to  at expose them to different scenarios. They will be trained how to fight with their weapons, how to deal with malfunctions, and   introduced to tactical environment scenarios such as encounters with bank robbers armed with high-powered firearms.

Tolentino said he  has plans to  expand the training to all members of the city police as part of his aims to make  every policeman a marksman.

He added that he  has accepted the challenge for the Dumaguete police force to become the first PNP station where every member is a marksman.

As a start, he is doing this for  CQRT members, and the expansion will depend on the availability of funds for the ammunition, among others, he said.

The next to be trained further are the beat patrols and mobile patrols of the city police, he said.*JG
