Train As If Your Life Depends On It.
Because It Does!
Was the training that you received at Mandate School and/or the Police Academy enough? Are you confident enough in your skills that you would trust them with your life?
In a day when the job of the Peace Officer is becoming ever more dangerous, the training offered in Mandate School and the Police Academies is dramatically deficient in many of the areas that officers need the most. The private sector has long surpassed the training that is provided to officers in the areas of defensive tactics, handcuffing techniques, firearms tactics, weapons deployment, weapons retention, interrogation, and more.
It's because of the deficiencies in the standard training of officers that thousands of agencies have been reaching to the private sector to provide specialized training on specific content. Sheriffs and Chiefs alike know that if their officers are undertrained, they will overreact. Because their officers have learned sub-standard methods of controlling a suspect, they experience an increase in excessive force allegations because the officers are left with no other option of controlling a situation than by escalating the level of violence.
That's where Law Enforcement Tactics comes in. We specialize in that critical transition from "presence of authority" to "presence of violence." We work with officers on how to recognize, control, and determine the outcome of that transition in a safe and efficient manner. Whether that be in regards to retaining their firearm against an attacker who is attempting to forcefully take it, or whether it is a routine arrest with little resistance- Law Enforcement Tactics works with officers to make sure that they determine the outcome of potentially violent encounters.
