Defensive Tactics Instructor
Weaponless Tactics - Batons - Handcuffs
We are proud to introduce Safecity's Course in Employ Batons and Handcuffs recognised by licensing authorities in Tasmania, Western Australia, NSW, Victoria and ACT.
There have been recent and past events involving the deaths and serious injuries sustained by offenders, and many deaths and serious injuries of poorly trained security officers. This clearly demonstrates the urgent need for a nationally recognised, competency based training program in weaponless tactics baton and handcuffs.
The current improvements in the training standards of security guards surprisingly overlooked the fact that officers often need to use defensive skills. Security Officers are often faced with scenarios which call for serious tactical decisions--yet they receive little or no training in these important issues. There is ample evidence to suggest that few Australian security providers and employers of security officers would be able to successfully defend a lawsuit claim from their employees based on lack of duty of care and OH&S issues.
Even more disturbing is the fact that many offenders and their families are able to capitalise on this lack of training. As a result, it is not difficult for blatant offenders to use the court system to obtain large payouts from their victims.
When Safecity began researching the need for such a product in the Australian security industry, we identified four major groups.
1. Employers who did not care about the level of training of their officers in defensive skills or other areas.
2 Employers who relied on their staffs martial arts, boxing, wrestling skills or sheer physical size.
3. Employers who relied on training offered by friends who were experts in martial arts or had police or military background.
4. Employers who took a great deal of trouble to train their staff but used unqualified or poorly qualified trainers, or used courses which were designed for countries where violent crime is out of control.
We found that most security providers and security officers favour professionalism and appropriate training. We were greatly encouraged by the enthusiasm and support we received when we initially announced our decision to produce the two programs.
