This two day course is designed for female officers 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 same L.O.C.K.U.P.® Police Combat orientation provides the core of the instruction. The days are hands-on and mentally challenging. Officers train and drill wearing vest and gun belt because anything else makes no sense.
