Over the last 18 months, the law enforcement community has faced tremendous criticism for excessive use of force. The Chicago report, released in January 2017 by the Department of Justice, cited that the Chicago Police department is guilty of using excessive force and is in need of reform.

Train to Win


"TRAIN TO WIN"
Author: Sergeant William Luther, Indian River County Sheriff’s Office

As officers we all know the rising risk we take on a daily basis with our chosen profession. We can never prepare enough, train enough or be vigilant enough in our endeavor to keep the communities and citizens we serve safe. It is truly hard to replicate the emotional and psychological responses we’re going to face in the event it happens to us. The closest we can come to mimic this environment is scenario-based training provided by a certified instructor within our agency or jurisdiction. It is not about the quantity of training but the quality as I’m sure most would agree. Oftentimes it’s difficult to find the nexus that connects the philosophies of soft control tactics up to lethal force decisions into one training program that facilitates a realistic training environment to reflect the day to day events we commonly face. ..

RedMan Warriors: Airman Kristine Glenn is the only female Phoenix Raven Instructor


Senior Airman Kristine Glenn attacks life with the same attitude she shows in RedMan qualification fights; when she sees an obstacle in her way she confronts it. Her fighter mindset and determination have gotten her to where she is today. After four years and more than 200 missions as a Raven, Glenn is now a Raven instructor. The intensive three-week, 12-hour-a-day course she instructs exposes students to more than 70 use-of-force scenarios where stress is simulated using role players and incorporates RedMan’s Defensive Tactics Training Suit for protection. Training includes instruction and realistic practical exercises in antiterrorism/force protection, weapon system security, verbal judo, combatives, tactical baton employment and advanced firearms proficiency.

Are We Training Figure Skaters or Hockey Players?


Teaching officers how to win, when their opponents want to knock ‘em down. In defensive tactics training, every level of a simulation is broken down into steps. The instructor must choreograph the training drill or scenario and repeat the technique with each student until the students demonstrates proficiency. The instructor watches the stance, the body position and the overall accuracy of the drill or strike. Creating step by step isolation drills is a core component of the building block approach in training. In order to properly prepare officers for real life encounters, instructors must complete the scenarios by introducing dynamic interaction, forcing the student to make in the moment decisions on which move or level of force is necessary. ..
