Tactical Baton and Handcuff Certification Course

Handcuffs are among the most often used tool by security, yet training is severely lacking. Studies show that over 67% of resistance by subjects occurs after the first handcuff has been applied. All too often the result is injury and/or death to either the security officer or subject. Additionally, the improper use of handcuffs is the focus of many civil suits. Proper training in the use of handcuffs is vital to security.
