Use of Force
Training is the key to exercising the right level of force in any incident and imperative in the protection of the officer and the citizen.
The Use of Force training has quickly become a hot button in our public law enforcement training academies, private security agencies and courts as many excessive force cases are coming to light, largely in part because of the cellphone camera and the officer’s own body camera.
In the past several years, dozens of police and security officers have been arrested, found guilty and incarcerated and an even higher number of judgments have been issued in civil courts.
