Congratulations to the NEW L.O.C.K.U.P.® Instructors of  Connecticut who recently successfully completed the mentally and physically challenging 9 day Arrest and Control Instructor training program.

These trained officers will teach the L.O.C.K.U.P.® Arrest and Control in police academies and local agencies throughout the state. The L.O.C.K.U.P.® program has been taught in CT since 2000 and is the only arrest and control system mandated and recognized by the CT Police Officer Standards and Training Council. They truly EARNED their Instructor Certification.
