POLICE CAREER: 23 year Law Enforcement Veteran having specialties on the Mobile Field Force, Instructor certifications include: Center Axis Relock 360 CQ, Firearms, Defensive Tactics, Pepperball, Long Gun and Ballistic Shield. Fully dedicated in training and tactics led Daniel to create the moving, shootback target system, the patented Perpetrator Target System. A police agency first training development resulting in excellent reviews by officers.

True technique, timing and training methods lead to success and this is offered in all aspects of our training.
In the spirit of combat martial arts fused with solid police tactics and experience, the Perpetrator Shootback Target idea was created by Daniel who devoted many years to it's implementation for realistic and safe shoot back range training. The system offers trainees the opportunity to have resistive, live fire, firearms training. The Perpetrator was deemed, a "Sparring Partner for the Range."
Establishing a functional, tactically effective and reliable robot system was the first step. Generating safe range procedures for a moving target that shoots back was another goal attained by Daniel. Having offered many years of shoot back training to civilian firearms owners having excellent outcomes.
Daniel transitioned from conventional manufacturing processes including milling machines and lathes to Solidworks CAD Design creations made by 3D Printers of a wide variety of engineering grade composite materials. This has led Officer Under Fire to have offerings of tactical products including gun accessories and ballistic shield components. This includes the Weapon Reloading System, US Patent #7707P0011US.
Over the past two years, Daniel has focused Officer Under Fire priorities towards ballistic shields and accessories with the technology of 3D printing.
