Assaults against on-duty law enforcement officers have steadily increased, and every officer is faced with the prospect of being seriously assaulted. Because of this ever-present threat, all law enforcement officers need a valid, defensible system for controlling hostile subjects and, at the same time, protecting themselves against assault.

Topics will include:

  • Analyzing use of force
  • Control concepts

  • Impact weapon systems
  • Active countermeasures
  • Other defensive tactics disciplines
