As troopers are encountering more and more resistance from offenders while performing their daily duties, it is extremely important that the trooper stays current in the most useful techniques available to insure their safety when dealing with an offender.

Officer Safety should be at the forefront in everything a trooper does and staying current with new techniques and proficient in all aspects of training will reduce the chances of troopers being injured in their day to day duties.
