Tactical Response Training Academy (TRTA)
Tactical Response Training Academy (TRTA) provides law enforcement and armed and unarmed security personnel with state of the art, real-world training including modern techniques in handcuffing, pepper spray, baton, and the management of aggressive behavior. Our programs are utilized by Federal, State, and Local government agencies as well as the private sector throughout the United States.
PATH – Practical and Tactical Handcuffing
Handcuffs are among the most often used tool by law enforcement and security officers, yet training in the usage of handcuffs 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 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 law enforcement and security officers.
PPBT – Personal Protection Baton Tactics
The PPBT® “Personal Protection Baton Tactics” program is a straight and expandable baton training program drawing information from a variety of baton and training resources. The concept of controlling individuals with police batons is not new. Police batons of all varieties have been used for decades to control violent or resistive individuals. Proper training in their use is essential to reduce injuries to law enforcement and security officers and suspects and to protect the officer and agency from frivolous litigation.
OCAT – Oleoresin Capsicum Aerosol Training
Aerosol chemical agents have been around for many years. The impact of the use of these chemical agents wasn’t significant until 1976 when Mr. Gardner Whitcomb introduced an Oleoresin Capsicum (pepper spray) formulation. At the request of Mr. Whitcomb, the first official OC training manual was co-written by Roland Ouellette and Ed Nowicki. OC has proven to be more effective than CS or CN, and as a result, numerous companies now manufacture OC aerosol sprays.
MOAB – Management of Aggressive Behavior
MOAB® training presents principles, techniques, and skills for recognizing, reducing, and managing violent and aggressive behavior. The program also provides humane and compassionate methods of dealing with aggressive people both in and out of the workplace.
