ARDMORE -- Staged police raids provided some hands-on training for Ardmore officers on Wednesday.
The Ardmore Police Department's Special Response Team staged the raids at two local apartment complexes.
The raids train officers going through the steps of executing a search warrant.
Detective Ryan Hunnicutt of the Ardmore Police Department says the team does this twice a month to identify and reduce the risks of real situations.
"The closer we can keep things to a real incident, the sharper we're able to retain. We will plan activities and go back and critique ourselves."
It was the first time the police department conducted the training mission in an apartment complex.
