Special THANK YOU to Ofc. Mike Brown for his efforts to organize the training.

What the students had to say:

“Best class I’ve attended as a police officer.”
“The first class I have ever attended that is 100% applicable to police work.”
“Exceeded my expectations form the description.”
“Best Arrest and control tactics class I have ever been to.”
“Lt. Dillon was very professional and did a great job of keeping the complete attention of the class. He taught in a manner that made it easy to see how the techniques will be used on the job.”
“The quality was excellent throughout.”
“Great techniques that are easy to learn and imprint.”
“Lt. Dillon – Simply one of the best instructors I have been taught by. He allows feedback and is not quick to defend every technique. He listens and discusses any questions.”
“This course provided more than I expected.”
“All good techniques which can be utilized within my career.”
“The instructors were amazing and knowledgeable in all the material.”
“If there were any questions they helped out 1 on 1 till the material was understood and applied correctly.”
“It will drastically change how things are done at my PD.”
“Every law enforcement officer should attend this program.”
“Great instruction with visual. Everything broken down to chunks make it easy to learn.”
“The material far exceeded my expectations by proving that what we are currently using is in effective.”
“This program can definitely be used for our street units, corrections dept. and court services unit.”
“All the additional instructors (Nick, Mike and Dustin)were exceptional with assisting Lt. Dillon. I’ve been in law enforcement for 19 years and Lt. Dillon is the best instructor that I’ve ever had the opportunity to learn from.”
“I believe more freeze frame of the most complex techniques would be a good video tool to speed up student mastery.”
New training is a hard sell. Intensive physical combative training is extremely difficulty to implement in this geographical area at this time.”
“This was the most realistic course both physical and mental I have ever taken.”
“The instructors never stated that this was the best system. Though each level of instruction allowed the student an opportunity to evaluate the techniques themselves.”
“Yes, I think all of my instructors in the training academy should attend this class.”
“The best presentation I have been to.”
“I never meet and instructor who really cares for the people he teaches Very passionate about how he teaches and he demonstrates great knowledge in all the material presented. 100% know he has been in real situations and brings that experience to the class.”
Help change the thought process of how to deal with a combative detainees. Also to know that verbal skills is a very important tool.”
