"Almost any use of force, however minute, poses some risk of death" (Garrett v. Athens-Clark County, 378 F.3d 1274, 1280, FN12 (11th Cir., 2004). The application of restraints is a use of force, and many times officers have needed to timely and safely restrain individuals who were combative, resistive, and/or in an agitated state. This 8-hour instructor program shows how to apply and also teach two popular restraint devices: The WRAP Restraint System, and the TARP Strap. Two instructor certificates will be issued upon successful completion of the program.
