One of the most critical elements in law enforcement is an officer’s ability to use his/her weapon safely and effectively. The Range Safety Team consists of detectives and agents from various units within the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office whose primary function is to train and qualify Middlesex County Propsecutor's Office Detectives in the safe handling and operation of their duty weapons. In addition, the Range Safety Team instructors also offer a number of firearms classes designed to enhance firearms proficiency and tactics to local, county, state and federal agencies.
In addition to live fire classes, the Team also offers realistic firearms training on a firearms training simulator. The simulator is designed to train officers in the use of deadly force and the decision-making process that those situations demand. The system places officers in numerous realistic scenarios in which he/she must interact and communicate with characters in real life situations; attempt to diffuse critical incidents and bring them to peaceful resolution; exercise sound tactics; and use designated weapons that record the officers accuracy.
