CT – Overcoming Size Differences for Female Enforcers

Connecticut Probation Division Training Academy
® Overcoming Size Differences for Female Enforcers
May 2 – 3, 2016

What the officers had to say;

“This will help me as I am an FTO and am constantly showing officers how to improve officer safety.”
“The training will allow me to use skill when I go hands on rather than being a scrappy fighter.”
“I feel more confident with my physical / arrest skills if needed.”
“Beyond my expectations, the things we learned are something that I can use.”
“I feel more confident that I could protect myself if I ever have to go hands on.”
“I expected to be sore and I loved it.”
“it will give me the tools to protect myself.”
“I like the practical application and 80% of the course was practical!”
“This course was great, prepares you for hands on encounters in any situation.”
“”Every female should have this course.”

This two day course is designed to address violent encounters dealing with suspects of larger stature. When attempting control larger suspects, size and strength differentials necessitate combat strategies less reliant on pure upper body strength. The concepts and techniques can be utilized by any officer addressing a larger suspect. The days are hands-on and mentally challenging. Officers train and drill wearing vest, gun belt and gear because anything else makes no sense.
