The speakers were true professionals, again year after year. It makes me proud and humble at the same time to interact with the caliber of people who are willing to be so open and honest. Thank you again.

Captain John Geary
Middlesex, Massachusetts Sheriff's Office

 

 

Once again you provided top notch instruction: A+. It never ceases to amaze me the caliber and class of instructors that are on hand for these Symposiums. No where else will you find this much knowledge in the same seminar.

Sergeant Gordon Adams
Lorain Co., Ohio Sheriff's Office

 

 

I liked the critical incident/shooting debriefs. All [instructors] were excellent, very qualified, and credible. The Symposium was excellent and very well organized. Thank you.

Investigator Michael Denning
Henderson, Nevada Police Dept.

 

 

I liked EVERYTHING about the Symposium. The instructors were knowledgeable, well-prepared, and very candid. I'll be back next year!!!

Officer Daniel Buckley
Middletown TWP, Pennsylvania Police Dept.

 

 

I just wanted to thank you again for setting up such an informative and comprehensive symposium regarding Police SWAT/Sniper issues. I thought that the entire three days were well hosted and run. The experience and quality individuals that you brought together as instructors and presenters made the event. I paid for my attendance on my own, but I feel that the knowledge and experience was well worth it. Thanks Again.

Police Constable Brad Dunlop
Durham, Canada Regional Police

 

 

I must say out of the last three years of coming to the Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper Symposium, this year ranks among the top. The information that was presented was more than expected and the operational debriefs were outstanding! We are already at work changing response policies and planning for the future. Again, thanks for another great event in Gaithersburg and looking forward to the future.

Deputy Rich Ferguson
Howard County, Indiana Sheriff's Dept.

 

 

I have always admired how you do NOT do what everyone else does, and how you truly gear your training to the police professional. The Symposium was invaluable and well worth the out of pocket expenses. I came back with about 15 pages of notes and at least three or four solid changes to my SOP that will be made as a result of the information you provided. I would love to see your training more often in the West. Thanks Again.

Sergeant Dave Bahde
South Salt Lake, Utah Police Dept.

 

 

As the SWAT Commander of a 27 member part-time team, I implemented a number of procedural and operational changes as a direct result of the information provided at the Operational Tactics National Sniper/SWAT Symposium. Three weeks later, our team was activated for a barricaded suicidal individual with a 30/30 rifle. The suspect exited his house and began shooting in multiple directions, creating an immediate life-threatening danger to perimeter SWAT members and citizens. The suspect was shot and killed by one of our snipers, who also attended the previous year's Symposium. My team performed in an exemplary manner. I am convinced that the information learned from the SWAT/Sniper Symposium had a direct effect on the operational success of this activation and helped prevent injury to citizens in the area and to my SWAT team members.

I highly recommend the Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper Symposium to all SWAT members and especially team Commanders. There is no doubt that members from our agency will attend every year. Thank you for your commitment to exceptional training for members of the SWAT community.

Lieutenant Steven Scott
SWAT Commander
Monroe Co., New York Sheriff's Office

 

 

The information presented at the Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper was very beneficial. I took notes on every speaker; each had a valuable lesson about life, as well as SWAT and all gave a piece of themselves. The amount of professionalism and openness of your speakers and your staff make me truly feel a part of a family that takes care of its own. Thank you for sharing your professionalism and passion. It will fuel my efforts when the road gets tough.

Captain John Geary
Middlesex, Massachusetts Sheriff's Office

 

 

The Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper Symposium brings together the largest number of snipers and the most authoritative speakers on sniper related topics. Stuart [Meyers], you continue to be a catalyst for education and innovation in the sniping world. From topics at previous Symposiums, I have changed our qualification course, types of targets, how we set up our rifles, in addition to instituting a tactical waterborne operations program. Your influence expands with each Symposium. My partner and I had a great time and will be back next year with a few more guys. Excellent seminar!

Officer Mark Lundin
San Francisco, California Police Dept.

 

 

As always, a very well presented Symposium. The instructors were knowledgeable and professional: true experts in their field. I found the operational debriefs of particular interest. I returned to my department after attending the Symposium with new focus, energy, and direction. I enjoy being part of what I consider to be the premier training event in the special operations environment.

Corporal Peter Mainzer, Jr.
Albermarle Co., Virginia Police Dept.

 

 

Excellent speakers and a wide range of topics. This was my first time attending and well worth the trip. I’ll certainly pass it along and recommend you throughout my military contacts. All teams, including the military would greatly benefit. Thanks.

Master Sergeant Marty Bower
United States Air Force

 

 

Thanks for a great time. As expected, the Symposium provided both knowledge and camaraderie, which also lead to new friendships and networking. For the second year, I have been quite impressed with your choice of speakers. As a sniper as well as an entry team member, I went away with a wealth of knowledge and ideas to bring to my team and my students.

Officer Scott Orton
South Kingstown, Police Emergency Services Team

 

 

The Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper Symposium was nothing short of outstanding! The instructors were all well versed and knew their subject areas. The opportunity to mix with the quality of cadre and participants alike, was a great avenue to "collect & report" information. All aspects of Operational Tactics, Inc. were professional and beyond reproach! Keep up the good work!

Master Sergeant Neil Morris
Chief Sniper Instructor
United States Marine Corps Camp Lejeune, North Carolina

 

 

A symposium of such nature is beneficial for the professional development regarding all sniper-related operations. The experience derived from the interaction with fellow specialists will immensely contribute to the professionalism of education and knowledge, which all snipers should receive.

The Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper Symposium brings together the very best in the field of sniping, of which is extraordinary and rare. Having attended two Symposiums and the recent World Sniper Championship, organized by Operational Tactics, it has truly broadened my knowledge and imagination in the designing of developmental training and utilization for future sniper-related operations. Itās The Place To Be!

Robin Chan
Sniper Commander
Singapore Special Forces

 

 

The Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper Symposium is excellent. I base this not only on my views, but comments I heard as I walked about and listened to conversations. Drawing that many dedicated professionals into a symposium is a compliment to your efforts. Operational Tacticsā overall program merits praise and I want to emphasize that I regard what you are doing as invaluable to the law enforcement and military community.

Hays Parks
Special Assistant
Office of the Judge Advocate General of the Army Washington, D.C.

 

 

I have been fortunate enough to attend a number of sniper/SWAT related schools both in the Marine Corps and in the civilian law enforcement realm. I feel that your symposium, paid for out of my own pocket, was one of the most worthwhile investments I have ever made. I especially enjoyed the lessons learned, as well as being able to meet and have a beer with guys I'd only heard or read about up until then. The classes were all top-notch. Equally meaningful was the ability to get together with old friends, as well as making new ones. The level of experience in that room was unbelievable, as was the brotherhood and the sense of camaraderie.

Officer Mike Georgoulis
Danbury, Connecticut SWAT Team

 

 

The Sniper Symposium...WOW... What an honor...I was amongst some of the world class snipers. With speakers of great capabilities & highly motivated & enthusiastic...Man what an absolutely incredible event...With just over 400 attendees, this Symposium was absolutely phenomenal. My hat is off to Stuart Meyers... He ran a class act & I saw a number of Officers & SpecOps personnel I know from around the community...

Chief Steven Bronson
U.S. Navy (Ret.)

Congratulations on an excellent Symposium. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am already looking forward to next year's! Keep up the excellent work, you're making my mission a lot easier.

James Dowle
Chief Firearms Instructor
Hertfordshire, England Constabulary

 

 

Thank you for the outstanding training this past weekend. I am currently assigned to entry, but the knowledge that I gain from the Symposium helps me tremendously in understanding the overall mission as well as the capabilities of our snipers.

Officer Travis Pugh
Chambersburg, PA, Police Dept.

 

 

Excellent Symposium! It was my first time attending. I will try to get more team members to attend next year. Keep up the good work. You keep me motivated and constantly thinking.

Officer Steve Rief
Connecticut State Police

 

 

Thanks for another GREAT symposium. The instructors as always were top shelf. It was without any doubt the best yet. You run a truly class operation.

Sergeant John Phillippy
Chambersburg, PA, Police Dept.

 

 

I liked the diversity in subject matter and wide range of material, instructors, and attendees. I took in a large amount of useful information in a short period of time. I felt the three days I spent here were very productive. You [Stuart Meyers] were professional, courteous, and dedicated to the betterment of all involved.

Officer Dennis Leonard
Albany, New York SWAT Team

 

 

This Symposium was outstanding and well worth the trip from Texas.

Lieutenant Kevin Hamrah
Irving, Texas SWAT Team

 

 

The Operational Tactics National SWAT/Sniper Symposium was very well organized. The classes and instructors were well planned and interesting. The information on Officer-Involved Shootings was the best I have seen.

Corporal Brian Lepley
Cumberland, Maryland SWAT Team

 

 

The debriefing on Columbine High School was very interesting and well done. John Hallās [presentation on legal issues] was by far and away worth the trip. Keep up the good work.
