Defense & Control Tactics
Thank you to Independence National Historic Park and Ranger McLeod for hosting our monthly activity this past December. Ranger McLeod taught us how to properly handcuff an individual and the necessary steps we must take to maintain control of the situation. We were also introduced to defense tactics, which is pertinent to officer safety. We ran through a physical drill to get our adrenaline pumping, then had to defend ourselves from a potential threat and handcuff an individual. It was a great experience to simulate how adrenaline will effect me in the field. I am appreciative to be exposed to this material prior to the academy.
