LAW ENFORCEMENT DEFENSIVE TACTICS SYSTEM

 

The RTI Guardian Defensive Tactics System is a comprehensive Defensive Tactics Program offering officers a functional foundation in a variety of related defensive skills. The program has been developed by a certified Defensive Tactics Instructor who has trained officers at the local, state, and federal level. Modules of the course have bee P.O.S.T. Certified in several states and have also been adopted by various agencies, such as the Pentagon Force Protection Agency. All Modules are available in either Basic User Certification or Instructor Certification Format.

The program came about after The staff at RTI Staff identified a large void that needed to be filled in DT training. Defensive tactics Training is often ignored or when addressed it is often dangerously lacking. Some programs are based on antiquated methods, others appear on the surface to be adequate programs but upon deeper evaluation they come up short. Some other programs offer viable material but require inordinate amounts of time to become and maintain proficiency. Most importantly, few programs truly address the limitations or special considerations required of training Law enforcement Officers.

We at RTI want officers to be safe. We feel confident that we are offering one of the most practical and easiest to learn and implement programs in the field. The program has been pressure tested in heavy scenario training and gone through several revisions based on the material’s effectiveness under stressful, live scenario testing.
