This course is a 2 day train the trainer that covers handcuffing, baton, weapon retention, and pepper spray. The art of handcuffing is one of the most used tools in law enforcement, and being able to handcuff in a safe tactical manner is important to the safety of your officers. There are many different styles of handcuffing that are taught, but we believe we’ve taken the best of what is offered and placed it into one course. We also focus on use of force concepts as well as positions of advantage that allow you to have an increased chance of coming out on top.
The baton is seldom utilized in law enforcement, because officers are not familiar with when and where they should or should not use the tool. We not only focus on sound techniques and simple concepts with the baton, but we also teach you as an instructor how to legally articulate when a baton can be reasonably used within an encounter. This course emphasizes instructor interaction and concepts to make you a better instructor for your agency, which is one of the most important aspects of your job. The use of pepper spray is still a valid tool in law enforcement, since the taser does not meet every situation, which is why we’ve included this in our program. You’re not required to be exposed to pepper spray during this training if you’ve been previously exposed. We guarantee this course will fill up fast! The certification is valid for three years.
