Abstract

There is a lack of research into the police's physical defense and control tactics training. Approximately 600 officers in the USA form the research population and their opinions are sought about the defense and control tactics training they receive, their experiences in using these tactics and their interest in alternative techniques and training methods. Results support the idea that in-service training might be improved. There are high levels of dissatisfaction with the training and there are hints as to how training can be improved.
