Congratulations to the attending officers who actively participated and achieved their L.O.C.K.U.P.® Intermediate Instructors Qualification.

This is what the students had to say;

The hands-on training and scenarios were perfect to retain most of each maneuvers.
The instructors knowledge and application was excellent.
Excellent PowerPoint lecture and hands-on.
Very well taught classes! Lieutenant Dillon in other instructors made for a positive learning experience.
Always clear, concise and well explained.
I am a Use of Force Instructor and that things I learned will be able to be brought back to my police department and taught to the officers.
With this training I will be able to train all of our officers fully on L.O.C.K.U.P.®.
Just enough PowerPoint to provide background knowledge and fundamentals. A lot of hands-on demonstration that helped learn easier.
All instructors were knowledgeable of the material. They all had a good friendly demeanor and good sense of humor.
