Edward Villareal

Edward Villarreal is currently serving as a Police Officer with 20 years of experience. I have been a certified firearms instructor through NMDPS since 2006. Recently certified as an NRA Basic Pistol Instructor.

Certified Low light Instructor

I have been a certified Low Light instructor through the Surefire Institute since 2006. I have also been a certified Force on Force instructor through Simmunition and ATK since 2007. For the past 15 years, I have helped train several police officers, police academies, biannual law enforcement classes, and the SWAT team in the above-mentioned areas.


I served on the department SWAT team for several years. This did allow me the opportunity to not only attend a basic Swat course but the FBI SWAT course as well. I currently have 32 years of Firearms experience.

Basic Firearms Training – Las Cruces

This includes basic firearms, tactical firearms, few years of competition shooting, advanced handgun, and rifle instruction, as well. Most of my Police experience has been at the patrol level. I also served several years as a K9 Officer and a few years as a Detective. This experience, plus having served 12 years in the US Army, in an infantry combat unit, has allowed me to gain an exceptional range of Real-World Experience.

Sharing my experiences

I want to share this experience and knowledge with the Law-Abiding citizen in order to help you protect yourself and your loved ones. I want to share this experience and knowledge with Law Enforcement Officers in order to help you stay safe, to provide up-to-date/current training, to help you win that violent encounter, and to better help you protect the community.
