Extremely knowledgeable instructors who were eager to teach.

Great amount of in class and mat time.

Great instructor, good class, knew the material and was able to related to students.
Please assess the instructors in this program.

All instructors were fantastic.  Lieutenant Dillon was awesome, put on a great realistic training and was good at sharing real-world experiences along with a great sense of humor.

Professional, knowledgeable, experienced.

All were very knowledgeable, gave great feedback and worked with you to learn the moves.

Every instructor seemed as comfortable and knowledgeable of all the material as Lieutenant Dillon was.

All the instructors were great and willing to help a new student of this program.

It was an honor to have Lieutenant Dillon instruct the class. All the other instructors were very knowledgeable and presented things in different lights at times to see it another way.

Everyone was top notch.  I would love to help out in the future.

Lieutenant Dillon was outstanding!  He instructed the class in an easy to learn comprehensive and retainable manner.  All other instructors helped along the way and ensured all the material was reinforced

Phenomenal! Lieutenant Dillon has so much knowledge and real life experience to work with the class.

Please explain how this training will enable you to change or improve your present assignment.

Officer safety, use of force reviews and training other officers will all improve.

As a DT instructor and MARC instructor for the all Auburn police department I have many more useful tools in my cabinet.

Report writing, changing use of force reports and to change our current system to LOCKUP. 

We have so many new officers that are just hitting the street with static XXXX training.  They all deserve more.

This training will change my use of force situations. Main reason is because all the moves tie into each other and can be done from several positions with the same result.

This training will help me and other officers protect ourselves and complete our job.

I will incorporate this system into in-service training as well as my students at the college.

I will be bringing this back to my agency with a lot of confidence in the material.

This program will allow our department to have an effective arrest and control program.

Will able me to teach other useful applications strikes and maneuvers to survive on the street.
