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.
