New videos have been released over the "riot control teams" for the last few weeks. National Guard along with police and US military forces undertake training exercises across the United States. Training is based under riot control and martial-law scenarios.
According to the officials, the 134th Air Refueling Wing of the Tennessee Air National Guard and the Knoxville Police Department trainings take place once in a month. The troops take turns of being rioters, who throw objects and powder at each other.
"We use this training because we know that if we have to use it in the outside world or within a base then we're ready," National Guard official said.
The troops are to deal with civil unrest and domestic disorder.
The police officers are training the Guard troops, "in case they ever come in contact with a riot control situation," according to the official.
People are concerned with the trainings given the approach to Jade Helm 15, under which the troops will be operating undercover amongst local population.
New videos captured military and law enforcement practicing in Richmond and Ontario, California and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
