Instructors have also implemented specialized firearms training for agency members as well as officers from surrounding agencies.. Firearms training staff members play a key role in departmental shooting reviews to address training issues and offer expertise in police involved shootings.

The agency realizes that the use of firearms can be a perishable skill if officers are not given the opportunity to properly train.  The Doraville Police Department provides each officer with a membership to an indoor firing range to allow officers to maintain a higher level of proficiency.
