This is an intensive five-day training program to develop instructors in Handcuffing, Oleoresin Spray, and Police Baton (Fixed or Expandable). This is a law enforcement instructor course developing integrated concepts within the less-lethal options used by law enforcement. Law enforcement encounters are not restricted to one less-lethal option and are integrated using different disciplines. This course brings those options together in an instructor format.

Through lectures, demonstrations, physical hands-on skill development, and practical scenario applications this course is designed to develop instructors in Handcuffing, OC Spray, and Police Baton. Students will be instructed in legal aspects of the use of force and physical applications pertaining to officer defensive tactics. Students will be instructed in using the amount of force necessary and reasonable to control a violent resisting or combative suspect(s). Students will also be instructed in the teaching methodologies needed to instruct physical applications and test students for competency. Emphasis will focus on developing a strong knowledge of immediate restraint and control tactics that are a direct, proportionate, and measured response to all levels of resistance and aggression in multiple types of environmental settings.
