Course Overview

The effectiveness you have overcoming a subject using a straight baton (or explaining why it was necessary to use that use of force tool) is based in large measure on the practical knowledge and skills you are taught by a highly experienced instructor who uses well-documented courseware like those in this Safariland Training Group course. If you agree with this statement, you need to register now.

Using a comprehensive learning and dynamic hands-on curriculum, first-responders will learn how to utilize a straight baton, which is one of the most useful less lethal technologies on the duty belt, in direct and/or transitional ways for overcoming subject resistance through strikes, jabs or blocks and establish practical anatomical control over a subject for the purposes of escort and/or handcuffing.

This program is taught by leading experts who have real-world experience in both psychomotor skill programs and field applications of those skills. The class will provide the student with the instructor-level training needed to return to his/her agency and, as that agency’s instructor, develop and conduct a specialized program designed around the agency’s exact operational needs in the area of straight baton tactics for sworn personnel.

Monadnock® is a widely respected and internationally known name in law-enforcement education. Through the former Monadnock® Police Training Council, standards and procedures are structured to meet contemporary legal challenges. The Monadnock Expandable Baton techniques can be quickly mastered and performed under stress, including the baton-aided; subject-control holds called armlocks. The curricula for this class is fully researched in terms of tactical, medical and legal consequences and supported by the Safariland Training Group.
