The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives trained at Ft. Indiantown Gap Thursday.

The training included everything from a mock canine chase to briefings with the media to learn what they call the "command and control" theory.

"What you're doing is you're training them to handle a critical incident, and handle it so that the least amount of deaths or lrreast amount of injuries occur," said Mike Campbell of the ATF.

A total of about 45 agents worked to sharpen their skills.

"Our goal is - we know we're dealing with bad people. We know we're dealing with career criminals. Our goal is to make sure the agents go in and come out alive, and even the bad guys come out alive," Campbell said.

The training lasted for about six hours, but the agents said they never fully stop learning.

"They're constantly training. Public safety is number one. And getting these criminals off the street is a primary goal of ATF," Campbell said.
