Specialized Training

Tactical Training

Currently we have 2 Officers assigned to the Multi-Agency Emergency Response Team. Officers assigned to this unit undergo numerous trainings, certifications, and renewals. Tactical Officers must attend a 56 hour Basic SWAT school just to become a team member. Once assigned to the team, Officers become proficient with precision rifles, patrol rifles, and tactical handgun applications. Officers also learn to utilize chemical munitions, impact munitions, and distraction devices.

Officers assigned to ERT train at least 4 hours a month as a team working on tactics, negotiations, and woodland tactics to name a few. Officers assigned to the ERT also seek specific skills that enhance the team's effort, such as rappel master, man tracking, or water-borne operations.
Dive Training
Fremont PD has one Officer assigned to the Newaygo County Dive / Rescue team.  The Dive team trains monthly at many different locations in the County. Our Officer has completed certification in the following topics.
  • Dive Rescue 1: scene evaluation, search patterns, victim retrieval
  • Current Diving: swift water equipment, protocols, and search patterns
  • Ice Diving Operations: thermal protection, ice protocols, and special diving methods
  • Underwater Investigations: fingerprint development, collection of hairs, fibers, blood and trace evidence, underwater photography, drowning investigations, firearms recovery, recoveries of vehicle and skeletal remains
