Law Enforcement Training

Basic law-enforcement training includes a variety of intense instruction, exams and skill tests for the purpose of an individual becoming a certified law-enforcement official, like a member of a police force. Police officers undergo self-defense training to develop effective skills in close-quarters combat. This expertise offers valuable alternatives to less-lethal options, such as executing arm locks on aggressors or learning how to talk someone down. Law-enforcement training also encompasses training regiments for bureaus like the FBI, Secret Service and DEA.

Law-enforcement training deals with how the escalation of urban warfare has made it more necessary for police officers to develop street-survival skills. These skills include creating a proper mindset to stay safe on the street, removing job complacency that occurs when a police officer settles into a routine, undergoing extensive crisis-scenario training, preparing for unexpected off-duty encounters, and learning how to quickly process stress in order to prevent the onset of post-traumatic stress disorder. Because of the scrutiny that officers face from the public, this idea of remaining calm under duress is crucial to law-enforcement training.
