In today’s society, law enforcement, security, corrections, military and protective services agencies realize that handcuffing tactics strategies and techniques are essential for protecting themselves, aggressors, and the public that they serve. These agencies also understand that mitigating liability begins with proper training and education in handcuffing tactics strategies and techniques. The Handcuffing Tactics™ training program is designed for public safety officers to reduce the potential of injury and liability risk when lawfully restraining and controlling an aggressive subject. The tactics and techniques in this training curriculum are for incidents where the public safety officer is lawful and justified in applying a restraining device (handcuffs) to an subject.

It came together pretty quickly. The whole verbalization and getting people’s attention really makes the difference. But I forgot the whole left/left right/right thing….I still got the cuffs on safely and quickly, oh yes the proper fit and placement too. Thanks again for such an awesome training.” Shawn W. Brown, Security Supervisor – Fort Defiance Indian Hospital
