This book covers Defensive Baton issues for law enforcement officer. The goal is for the officers to understand and demonstrate the tactical fundamentals of the baton, in an operational setting, and its proper use as an intermediate impact weapon. One of the major dilemmas facing law enforcement today is the continually increasing number of assaults on police officers as they perform their duties. How can the officer respond to this critical situation without resorting to deadly force? Modern law enforcement tool has been developed to increase officers' ability to protect themselves, particularly in those cases not justifying the use of deadly force. That tool is the baton. The ability to use force, lawfully, against the public is the primary factor, which distinguishes the police from the rest of society. The police service is unique in society as they are the only civil organization that has been given the authority to use force. As a result of this responsibility, the use of force by the police comes under close scrutiny by both the public and the courts. The baton can be utilized when empty hand techniques are not effective. A trained officer who is proficient in the use of the baton is better able to protect himself and is less likely to resort to the use of his firearm. The main purpose of the baton is to stun or temporarily disable rather than cause permanent injury. The baton is not designed as a lethal weapon and is not an instrument of punishment. It is to be used in a skillful manner to counter or stop an aggressive subject. The techniques shown in this booklet has been universally accepted and are defendable in court. They are designed to work efficiently for all officers, male, female, small, large, fit and the less fit. Topics and techniques presented in this book will be of both great interest and great value to trainers and students of law enforcement.
