Monadnock PR-24® Baton Instructor Course
Your best less lethal close quarters option
This 2-day, highly dynamic instructor-level course provides the student with useful defensive skills in all 3 zones of defense, especially for close quarter battles (CQB). It relies heavily on practical hands-on applications and is intended for first responders who want instruction in the proper uses of Control Device/PR-24 baton (expandable or rigid) batons used for self-defense and subject-control for escort and handcuffing.
Using a comprehensive learning and dynamic hands-on curriculum, first-responders will learn how to utilize a PR-24® (or the generic term “side-handle”) baton, which is one of the most useful and field-tested less lethal technologies on the duty belt, in direct and/or transitional ways for overcoming subject resistance through strikes, jabs, chops or blocks and establish practical anatomical subject-control over them for the purposes of escort and/or handcuffing. Baton strikes are taught but not emphasized.
The effectiveness you have overcoming a subject using a Control Device/PR-24 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.
This program is taught by leading experts who have real-world experience in both psychomotor skill programs and field applications for those skills. The class will provide the student with necessary information 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 Control Device/PR-24 baton tactics for sworn personnel.
