Get an insider's look at the training of Texas Parks and Wildlife Special Operations.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Special Operations were formed to deal with an increasingly sophisticated and well-armed type of bad guy. Here you can get a snapshot of some of their training and why they do what they do.
It is no secret that the border areas are becoming an increasingly complex place for law enforcement to operate in. In many cases they are miles from any backup and new skillsets have had to be cultivated to counter an ever-increasing violent threat from drug cartels and others that operate in more rural areas.
Training and techniques that were once the realm of military Special Forces have had to be adopted by many LEAs in the United States. From discreet observation and reconnaissance, to special weapons training to protect officers from well-armed criminal elements, what probably was fairly straightforward enforcement two decades ago is a whole new ballgame and environment.
