|Our high level, Public Order-Riot Control, is a hybrid of material from Hong Kong, the United States and the United Kingdom offering a best practices model for civil disorder teams. This 4-day (40-hour) course is roughly 20 percent didactic and 80 percent practical. Programs may be customized to an agency's specific needs. This training is highly practical, real-life training. Content covered includes an in-depth introduction into the use of riot equipment; public order formations; tactics, techniques and procedures; close-quarter combatives; riot survival; introduction to less-lethal force within a crowd; less-lethal munitions and the legal aspects of their use; live simulated OC/CS agent training; integration of firearms; canines; mounted law enforcement; artificial lighting; Molotov cocktail (petrol bomb) awareness training; law enforcement action; crowd behavior; crowd management principles; the disorder scale; briefing structure; and, guidelines for civil disorder units.
We have 40 sets of current British HOSDB (Home Office Scientific Department Branch) standard riot control equipment, to not only protect them, but to encourage full force participation and engagement.
Programs may be customized to an agency's specific needs. Please note that this training is not mobile field force training, and has been found to be much more effective in meeting the needs of modern day public order teams.
