New Integrated Training Program
With critical input from certified trainers at major law enforcement agencies around the world, Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP), one of the leading manufacturers of law enforcement products, has developed a first of its kind training course that integrates batons, restraints and flashlights.
ASP’s new Integrated Training Program is a three day ASP Instructor Certification course that builds on the company’s well known, world renowned baton and handcuff training by adding lights to the curriculum.
The new program now provides a unified, holistic system of instruction for police officers on how to transition between these three critical pieces of equipment.
ASP provides this course free to law enforcement professionals. Each year ASP donates almost $2 million in free training to the profession. It’s ASP’s longstanding corporate commitment to the men and women of law enforcement.
“A number of programs teach the use of flashlights with firearms,” ASP Founder and President Kevin Parsons, PhD, said. “ASP presents something very different. The techniques are for the other 98% of the time police officers use flashlights.”
Based on the confrontational continuum, ASP’s highly intense Integrated Training Program includes multi-use drills, general tactics and expert support in case of litigation.
There are no complex holds or fine motor skills – just simple, strong, basic techniques and tactics. The Integrated Training Program is competency based instruction; every trainee must prove he or she can perform under pressure in order to earn the coveted ASP Instructor Certification.
“ASP training is for the real police,” said Parsons. “It works on the street; it's court defensible. It's our primary goal - Protecting Those Who Protect.”
