The public often focuses its attention on the daily work of criminal justice officers and their methods for controlling subject resistance when there is a question of the officer’s use of force. Whether meeting resistance on the street or in a correctional facility, officers must be prepared to respond appropriately to control a situation where the officer and the safety of the public are in danger. The defensive tactics curriculum offers criminal justice basic recruits effective, tactically sound, and legally defensible training in defensive tactics and control techniques. This course teaches recruits to select and properly execute techniques that are reasonable and necessary given the circumstances and factors of a situation.
