Unarmed Officer Courses

Code 4 Concepts; Officer & Public Safety (C4C-OPS)

C4C-OPS is designed primarily for security and police personnel, charged with public or guest safety, who require an instructional mix of Enforcement Tactics and Practical Defense training delivered in one day. Morning material presented includes the core curriculum from C4C Enforcement Tactics, which features contemporary principles and concepts for controlling subjects before, during and after use-of-force encounters. Subject management and control, both verbally and physically, are taught along with a block of instruction on modern use-of-force doctrine. Verbal skills, confrontation management, conflict resolution and de-escalation are emphasized throughout in order to problem-solve at the lowest level and minimize use of physical force. Afternoon material presented includes the core curriculum from C4C Practical Defense, which features groundbreaking methods for defending against common attacks by aggressive subjects, both standing and on the ground. Through practical application and drilling, students will learn street-proven control holds, escorts, takedowns, restraint techniques, handcuffing, personal defensive tools, dynamic movement against an attacker, how to counter strikes, takedown defense, escapes from control holds, ground control & defense measures, and much more. Additionally, students will learn how to work with partners and apply team-based techniques that reduce risk of injury to all parties rather than increase it. This training is ideal for the armed or unarmed professional who must be prepared to responsibly go hands-on with or subdue a resistant, aggressive or violent individual during the course of their official duties.
