The elderly can present law enforcers with some tough, and often ambiguous, issues. You may encounter an elderly individual with dementia or one who is very seriously infirm. In this PoliceOne TV Reality Training segment hosted by Dave Smith — Senior Street Survival Seminar Instructor and the Director of Video Training for the Calibre Press Training Network — we see some of the things you might encounter during contact with an elderly person who is not only armed, but in a heightened emotional state and surrounded by a hostile crowd of citizens.
Dave Smith sits down with Lt. Dan Marcou to discuss the martial arts philosophy that Dan invented called Kei Satsu Jitsu. Police Officers are modern day knights who must now how to communicate, use their weapons, punch, kick, etc. and they must understand how to master all of these tasks.

More officers on the streets nowadays carry long guns and it is important they know how to operate and hold the weapon to keep it secure.
PoliceOneTV's Dave Smith and Gary Monreal of the New Berlin PD run through a scrimmage-type drill to help you prepare for one of the most important and dangerous situations you might face: an active shooter.

The 1780 Transport Case from Pelican Products fully holds weapons in place. A rubber face protects firearms, a manual purge valve equalizes pressure and there is a humidity indicator for the inside. It holds ten M16s or M4s and also comes in a commercial configuration.
Pelican Products subjected various cases to extreme abuse including: extreme drop test, dunking in water and surviving a 12 gauge shotgun. The cases all survived and the various items inside remained untouched!
