Handcuffing – O.C. Spray & Expandable & Straight Police Baton

An intensive 5-day program to train instructors in Handcuffing, Oleoresin Spray and the Police Baton (Fixed or Expandable). This is a law enforcement instructor course developing integration concepts within the less lethal options used by law enforcement and civilian security operations. Law enforcement encounters are not restricted to one less lethal option over another and are integrated using different disciplines. This course brings those options together in an instructor format so agencies can benefit from investing in the training.

This Triple Certification course is the CT and Rhode Island POST certified curriculum.
