Through lectures, demonstrations, role play, and practical scenario applications this course will instruct students to use the force reasonable to control a violent resisting or combative suspect within a beachfront environment. The focus is on developing a strong knowledge of immediate physical control tactics and techniques that address unstable sandy environments, hot weather, with crowded populated areas. The techniques are direct, proportionate, and measured responses to all levels of resistance and aggression in arrest and control engagements
