dc.description.abstractLaw enforcement officers are routinely put into situations that require them to make decisions, some of which could be life altering, and they often have only a fraction of a second to determine the best course of action to take. Of all the decisions a law enforcement officer is tasked with making, perhaps none is more scrutinized than when that law enforcement officer has to resort to using force to subdue a person in order to effectively gain control and take custody of that person. Without sufficient and continued training, poor decisions can be made, which can forever change a person’s life. Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark once said, “To be truly professional, police must have high standards of education and personal competence in a wide range of subjects with continuous development and training” (Munro, 1974, p. 151). Greater emphasis should be placed on defensive tactics training as a lack of training often leads to misapplication of proper techniques. Therefore, continued training in defensive tactics should be required of all law enforcement officers.
