COURSE OVERALL LEARNING GOAL:

 

As law enforcement officers we rarely respond to a dangerous incident without the aid of backup. So why do we so frequently operate as individuals when controlling an aggressive suspect?

This course will teach specific, easy to learn methods for two or more officers to safely control fully assaultive suspects. These are time tested and proven techniques for keeping officers safe. This  system is also effective at mitigating the use of higher levels of force which can lead to unnecessary injury, emotional stress and civil liability.

This course can easily be integrated with other tactics or systems. These physical skills are grounded in basic human kinetics with a focus on effective subject control. The secret of the success of our methods come through universal application. This allows officers to learn a minimal number of techniques, but have an ability to apply them under a wide array of circumstances. Officers attending this course can expect to develop improved ability to control dangerous suspects regardless of their existing skill set.

     Course objectives include but are not limited to:

·        Enhance subject compliance with the use of verbal de-escalation and soft-empty hand techniques

·        Appropriately react to an assaultive subject at close quarters

·        Develop skills in handcuffing and controlling resistant subjects

·        Perform multiple-officer and single-officer takedowns on resistant subjects

The foundation of this course is built on empty-hand control techniques while integrating a holistic approach to the use of all force options. The principles taught in this course are not only easy to learn and effective, but also compliment tactics officers may already be using. 

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT

·        BDU style pants

·        Tennis/athletic type shoe or duty boots

·        Duty belt 

·        Training weapon (i.e. "blue/red/orange" gun) - We will have Glock 17 and Smith M&P 9mm training guns are available for use during this course.

COURSE OVERALL LEARNING GOAL:

The foundation of an effective defensive tactics program is solid curriculum and competent instructors. Our comprehensive system utilizes modern training methodologies and fundamental, easy to learn techniques. Officers attending this course will learn the most proven, essential, and innovative procedures for arrest and control.

Regardless of existing skill level, officers will become proficient in the application of effective force and enhance their abilities to react to all levels of subject resistance. This training will provide considerations for all typical force option tools to include Taser, ASP baton, and less lethal force platforms. The core elements taught in this course such as leverage, body position, and timing are compatible with all other defensive tactics and use of force related systems. But, learning to efficiently gain control of resistant and assaultive suspects is only part of the process.

Integral to this course will be a focus on building and mentoring effective communicators and trainers of law enforcement professionals. Conventional methods of instruction have been shown to produce a 20% rate of retention. Our innovative, student focused training methods, result in a retention rate of up to 80%. This program maximizes information transfer from the classroom to real world application for trainers and the professionals they teach. Finally, this course will provide a robust curriculum that can be tailored to individual and organizational needs and fielded in virtually any law enforcement, security, or similar organization.

Course objectives include but are not limited to:

  • Enhance subject compliance with the use of verbal de-escalation and soft-empty hand techniques

  • Appropriately react to an assaultive subject at close quarters

  • Develop skills in handcuffing and controlling resistant subjects

  • Perform multiple-officer and single-officer takedowns on resistant subjects

  • Incorporate force tools and how to transition to the most effective force options

  • Enhance your organization’s existing training through the utilization of student centered, adult learning principles

The foundation of this course is built on empty-hand control techniques while integrating a holistic approach to the use of all force options. The principles taught in this course are not only easy to learn and effective, but also compliment tactics officers may already be using. 

An attack cannot always be avoided, so don’t rely solely on situational awareness or unrealistic technique to stay safe on the streets.
