RI L.O.C.K.U.P. ® 5 Day Arrest and Control Instructor Training

33 Rhode Island L.O.C.K.U.P.® Instructors complete intensive training at Central Falls RI. Officers from the East Providence, Middletown, Charlestown, Narragansett, South Kingston, Cranston, Portsmouth, Lincoln Rhode Police Departments Wyatt Detention and the Rhode Island State Police successfully completed 5 days of L.O.C.K.U.P.® Instructor training or 3 days of re-certification training. These trained officers will continue to teach the L.O.C.K.U.P.® Arrest and Control to members of the Rhode Island Police Departments. The L.O.C.K.U.P.® skills instructed  will keep them and the officers they train safe!

This is what the officers had to say:

Over 16 years of law enforcement training and this was by far the most realistic and useful I have ever attended!
Great combination of case law, scenarios, skill learning, report writing, liability, etc…gets all the important areas of the job.
I believe this course helped refresh the techniques taught in the Rhode Island Municipal Police Academy it was nice to learn new techniques. 
Course exceeded all expectations with hands on, simulation was super effective!
Above and beyond all expectations!
Refresher from the academy combat training with new simple techniques are more effective and should be very helpful.
Excellent course!
This was one of the best training I have been too.
The instructors knowledge base exceeded my expectations.
I was extremely pleased with the amount of knowledge learned in five days.
It was challenging but definitely locked in all of the movements in training.
Exceeded expectations I am confident I could pass on the knowledge I learned.
Lieutenant Dillon knows his stuff, starts extremely basic and work two although it up to perfection.  Best training I have ever attended.
As a patrol lieutenant I will be able to discuss these topics with officers on a daily basis. The additional information regarding report writing and law suits was very valuable as well.
All the instructors were great. They are open to helping and teaching techniques.

Congratulations to all of you!
