FL – L.O.C.K.U.P. ® Overcoming Size Differences Tactics for Female Enforcers

Criminal Justice Academy of Osceola
® Overcoming Size Differences Tactics for Female Enforcers
April 14 – 16, 2021, 8-5 pm


This three-day course is designed to address violent encounters dealing with suspects of larger stature. When attempting to 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 a vest, gun belt, and long pants because anything else makes no sense.
