Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Although every Soldier goes to Basic and AIT, not every Soldier’s training includes exposure to TASER and pepper spray. This month, Soldiers from Fort Campbell’s 716th Military Police Battalion, 16th Military Police Brigade did just that as part of their Law Enforcement Training Seminar, commonly referred to as LETS.

LETS is a month long training covering Military Police skills such as traffic stops, writing citations, emergency vehicle operation, gate operations, radar/LIDAR use, standardized field sobriety tests, and the use of non-lethal weapons.

This training familiarizes new MPs on Fort Campbell with the laws and regulations specific to the installation.

PV2 Johnathon Ward and PV2 Adaydin Becher, Military Police Soldiers with the 194th Military Police Company, 716th Military Police Battalion take a shot from an X26 TASER as part of the non-lethal weapons portion of their LETS training. Although unpleasant, experiencing the effectiveness of the X26 first hand gives these MPs the confidence they need to carry the non-lethal weapon system in the real world. (Sgt. 1st Class Ashley Savage, 16th Military Police Brigade)
