Marines, civilian police officers conduct urban training exercise
Teams were presented with a series of real life scenarios
CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — Training at Camp Lejeune Thursday looked and felt real — and that was the point. Law officers and marines from across the country ended their training with a bang.
Thursday was the final day of exercises for law enforcement and marines who have gone through special reaction team training at Camp Lejeune for the past three weeks. In the final exercise, teams were presented with a series of real life scenarios as well as hands on instruction to handle them correctly.
Brian Dye, Operations Chief of I&I in Lexington, Kentucky says training civilians as a blended force with Marine Corps personnel eases the transition into a real world scenario.
