Agencies must do everything possible to enhance the delivery of subject control training. It is unacceptable to wait until a training deficiency is brought to light due to a high-profile lawsuit or, worse, an officer injury or death. In this edition of P1 Training eNews – a partnership between PoliceOne and PoliceTraining.net – we outline how agencies can improve defensive tactics training while prioritizing officer safety.
Dan Marcou lists 13 steps instructors can follow to deliver training that is both safe and realistic enough to prepare officers for the harsh realities of the street; Tyson Kilbey outlines nine strategies to immediately improve a subject control program; and Jerrod Hardy discusses how to provide balanced use-of-force training that meets the needs of officers, their families and their communities.
Focus on the importance of staying in the fight in your next roll call training. Dave Smith’s video walks viewers through tactical lessons from a brutal attack on a police officer and our training tip lists eight steps officers can take to become physically ready for a fight for their life.
