Control & Arrest
This courseis the BTS approach to the problems that face every officer who must penetrate the proverbial 'reactionary gap' and take a suspect into custody. Most conventional approaches have officers focusing on complex motor skills and their cuffing ritual before they've actually, tactically confirmed the suspect is a non-combatant. Coach Blauer wrote an article (treatise) called THE THEORY OF PRESUMED COMPLIANCE which explains some of the psychological and attitudinal issues that make sudden resistance at close-quarters such a problem.
This course is designed to teach the essential skills and drills for the application of Control & Arrest Tactics that are compatible with the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM's Counter Ambush Training. Course content includes: Startle/Flinch Conversion Theory, establishing Point of Domination, control positions, solo and tandem takedowns, control to out of control Drills, handcuffing position and vehicle extraction.
This class isn’t just for SWAT operators and tactical teams. It is for any cop who may make entry into a home or building, on a search, warrant service or investigation. It is for anyone who moves through space with their guns in hand and may have to transition to handcuffing or go hands on in moment’s notice. It is for anyone who may find themselves in a “no room to shoot, no time to shoot” situation. While these are skills often trained by special operations teams, in many agencies they are real life scenarios patrol cops and investigators find themselves in every day. It is for any law enforcement and military who do these things daily.
