Battle of the Blue Sizzle Reel
Watch, as two veteran law enforcement trainers bring eight law enforcement officers together at an exclusive location for multiple weeks of training and competition. Hear the officers tell compelling stories about their own line-of-duty experiences as they better prepare themselves for the battles they face both on and off duty.
Discover the “Battles” they face; keeping our streets safe; dealing with negative image portrayals in the media; keeping their personal lives together and dealing with what they’ve seen and been forced to do in the line of duty.
All training and competitions will be conducted as “Team” events with each team representing their own state. Each team will consist of two officers from four various states – eight competitors. The competitors will receive training from the Professional Trainers of “SSGT” (Strategic Self Defense & Gunfighting Tactics) prior to each “Competition Day.”
“Training Days” will last multiple days while a “Competitions” are completed in one day. The competition events will include pistol, carbine, precision rifle, defensive tactics, and wild card competitions. “Wild Card Competitions” will include Aerial Platform Gunnery, Motorcycle Operations, Pursuit Driving, and Boat Operations.
