An intensive 5-day training program to develop instructors in Handcuffing, Oleoresin Spray, and the Police Baton (Fixed and Expandable). This is a law enforcement instructor course developing integration concepts within the less lethal options used by law enforcement and correctional operations. Officers are not restricted to one less lethal option or product and need to integrate, interleave, and transition from one disciple to another. This course brings those options together in an instructor format so agencies can benefit from the investment in the training. All three systems are completely consistent with each other and is fully consistent with the principles and legal guidelines established for police use of force.

Through lectures, demonstrations, role-play, and practical scenario applications this course is designed to develop instructors in the use of Handcuffing, Oleoresin Capsicum – O.C. Spray and Police Baton. Students will be instructed in the legal aspects of use of force and the physical applications as well as teaching g methodologies to deliver the materials effectively.  The students will be instructed in using the amount of force that is necessary, reasonable and proportionate, to control a violent resisting or combative suspect (s). Students will also be instructed in teaching methodologies needed to instruct the legal aspect of the use of force, the physical applications of Handcuffing, O.C. Spray, and Police Baton and test students for competency.  environmental settings.
