DYNAMIC CONFRONTATIONAL ENGAGEMENT
Law enforcement training programs have become so complicated and protracted that the majority of officers easily forget what they were taught, or fail to practice it.
TTSGI instructors have reviewed hundreds of law enforcement videos of active engagements. In each engagement, when the officer encountered an emergency situation, they reverted back to their most resident training. The immediate response was similar to a schoolyard brawl. This method of defense, in the majority of cases, caused unnecessary injury to the officer. After reviewing the officers’ responses, TTSGI instructors could not find any formalized training which was parallel. This confirmed our belief that convoluted, protracted or ego-driven training does not protect officers, but instead sells products, videos, and trainers self-designed programs.
The majority of officers are not weight lifters, martial artists, or defensive tactics instructors. Most officers don’t apply techniques to co-operative fellow student/officers. TTSGI trainers have developed programs which continually reinforce basics throughout every call for service or interaction. The response will immediately take effect in a confrontational or escalating confrontational event.
TTSGI instructors have developed a program based on proven techniques that reinforce officer safety and appropriate response through a realistic training environment.
“Dynamic Confrontational Engagement” is a course of instruction which encourages the officer to use these techniques in order to manage a low risk contact to a dynamic de-escalating engagement. The system is based on a solid platform from the officer’s “Position of Interview”. The officer can escalate up through the entire continuum of force and de-escalate using industry proven law enforcement defensive techniques and be successful.
The constant application of communication, command presence, and officer safety has proven its place in law enforcement for numerous years. Yet we continue to train officers in complicated, protracted hand, foot positions and weapons deployment (lethal and less lethal) which work positively in a controlled classroom with co-operative student officers and does not have the same success ratio in the field during a confrontational encounter.
Dynamic Confrontational Engagement curriculum includes communication, command presence, appropriate application of chemical agents, impact weapons, lethal/less lethal force. The result is an officer who’s resident memory engages and the officer immediately reacts and wins the confrontation with minimal negative outcome to the officer and the individual who elected to engage the officer. “Paper targets don’t shoot back/compliant students don’t fight”.
TTSGI will adapt the curriculum to fit your departmental policies and procedures. This collaboration of trainer, administrator and officer will have a direct effect on risk management and a positive delivery of police service. Realistic and consistent training is a major offset should “deliberate indifference” issues arise.
