Covert Improvised Defensive Techniques
Accelerated UC/CP Officer and Armed Detail/In-Flight Security, Defensive Tactics Platform
U.R.C. Tactical “IDT” System is a covert system of self-protection utilizing the most common of daily implements. This system is extremely low-visual, non-telegraphic in its application and, as such, maintains the low stature of the UC/CP officer and heightens the psychological trauma to the aggressor. As a result, the risk of creating “relationships” with bystanders or the general public is minimized and preserves the integrity of the UC officer and his/her objective, as well as minimizing the level of public impact surrounding the CP principal or In-Flight security personnel.
What are the concerns?
From the personal experiences and field work of its training staff, U.R.C. Tactical found that there was always something missing from the defensive tactics training of field UC/CP personnel: what to use when you are unable to access your U.O.F. option, you were legally/operationally unable to carry a U.O.F option or you have exhausted your available U.O.F. options.
From UC to in-flight security, the amount of public recognition is always a threat to the safety of the team and those surrounding the officers. Too much interest from the general public can lead to early detection of the identity of the UC operator/CP principal, or an unjust amount of stress inside the “tube” when transporting a deportee.All of which leads to an extreme amount of attention when a threat has been registered and use of force has to be accessed. The general public may already have a negative perception of the personnel or team before this point if they have been detected. At this point, current U.O.F options are extremely high visible and may lead to increased liability to the security officer or the company, as the general public has an unrealistic assessment of who the UC/CP officer or in-flight security are and what level of “force to threat” was used. As well as the increased liability of video evidence due to the number of data capturing devices on every cell-phone currently available.
What is the answer?
To develop a DT platform that is low visual, non-telegraphic and can be applied with a common daily use implement. U.R.C. Tactical “IDT” is just such a system. Using a common implement, the UC/CP operator or in-flight security will be able to move freely through and between environments, (including airport security) without having to worry about being detected or creating “relationships” as a result of the U.O.F. option they are carrying. When they are called upon to access the U.O.F. option, the psychological impact is just as strong as the physical impact. Threat compliance will be administered quietly, swiftly and effectively by what will seem like an empty hand by both “bystander” as well as “aggressor”.
Bill C-45: The Westray Bill and Bill 168
In July of 2003, Bill C-45 was put forth as an act to amend the Criminal Code
of Canada as it pertains to the Criminal Liability of Organizations. The act saw changes to legislation putting greater onus on the part of those with responsibility for directing the work of others, requiring such individuals to take reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm arising from related work. Employers directing staff to work in environments which pose a real physical threat to the employee, now face much greater consequences should they fail to provide appropriate training to address such concerns.
Bill 168 has legislation regarding responsibilities for employers to ensure added safety and training for staff against intimidation, bullying and physical aggression in the workplace.
Teaching the “IDT System” as an option for low-visual, non-telegraphic compliance, direction and takedown will have a positive effect on the confidence and skill set of the operator. The “System” can be taught effectively in a short duration and can be accessed under extreme duress. It will also bolster a positive effect on engagement/dis-engagement strategies.
