Book Your Handcuffing Tactics™ On-Site Training Course Today!

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.

Handcuffing Tactics™ provides training and education that is designed to empower officers, increase awareness, knowledge and skills in handcuffing techniques, control & restraint, and defensive tactics strategies.

Handcuffing Tactics™ Topics Include:

  • Standing handcuffing
  • Kneeling handcuffing
  • Prone handcuffing
  • Handcuff take-down technique
  • Placement and fitting procedures
  • …and much, much more

We offer two types of Handcuffing Tactics™ courses:

We offer a 4-hr basic course provided to your staff with on-site training. Training fee covers up to 20 participants.
Our 8-hr Instructor Course provides a “teach-the-trainer” approach, allowing your instructors to provide ongoing training to the rest of your staff at your convenience. Upon successful completion of the testing criteria, certified Instructors will be able to train, certify and re-certify others in the basic training course.

“Can you believe that only a few days after the course was over, I had to utilize what I had learned at the class. 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.”
