Congratulations to the graduates of the L.O.C.K.U.P. Arrest and Control Instructor Course hosted by the St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy. Over 30 offices from 18 different agencies from Missouri and Illinois attended and successfully completed the physically demanding sold out program. These qualified officers will be instructing L.O.C.K.U.P. at their academies and agencies. Outstanding job!

This is what the attending students had to say:

  • Extremely practical and exactly what I was looking for.
  • I enjoyed this program the way it relates to reality of work on the street. The takedowns/handcuffing is more on point and real than the last course I had.
  • This program is hands down better than what our department currently uses. We will be adding this to be our primary program for the future.
  • KD (Lt. Dillon) presented information with personality and charisma, he kept me interested ready to learn.
  • Need to add at least one more day or ½ day to this program. The instructors were awesome.
    Far better of a defensive tactics class that I had in the academy. Thanks to all the instructors.
    (Instructors – Lt. Dillon)
  • About the best I have ever seen. A+
  • This program was extremely well planned. K.D. (Lt. Dillon) definitely took the time/study techniques and care for safety. I wish that everyone would take one of K.D’s courses.
  • I’m tired, sore and bruised and can’t stop smiling. Loved every minute. If you teach it, I will come!
  • Excellent class. Everything that was presented could be used on the street. All instructors took time to make sure I could preform the task. I enjoyed every day of the training and will attend again in the future.
  • Maybe consider a level 1 / level 2 to break up . Also follow up or in-service to fine tune. Excellent course!
  • On last day, provide more time to Arm Wrap and less time on rodeo drills. Otherwise excellent course. All instructors were skilled and dedicated to providing instruction for retention of teachings.
  • Lots of martial arts terms which were a bit overwhelming, but everything was chunked and explained which helped me very much.
  • Very happy I was here to take this class. These are skills I can use in the street. Very knowledgeable about teaching and used stories to teach which made it better than your average instructor.
