V.I.P.A Police Defence Tactics
V.I.P.A Police Defence Tactics is not intended and should never be seen as a substitute for official police defence procedures.
The Defensive Tactics Course is designed to give law enforcement personnel (Police Officers, Special Constables, Community Support Officers) the chance to train with fellow professionals in defensive techniques inbetween official training courses.
With ever increasing levels of violence against the police in the UK (see UK stats below) these courses help maintain individual skills to a standard required for frontline policing.
500 police officers seriously injured in 2007
One attack on a police officer every hour
There were 11,392 reported assaults on police officers in 2007.
These courses are only open to law enforcement personnel.

1 day Weapon Retention and Disarming £75.00
With weapons know being carried and used at an alarming rate by criminals, disarming an armed aggressor is a requirement for every police officer. Edged weapons, blunt trauma weapons and firearms all pose individual problems which require effective responses to ensure an officers survival.
Retaining your own weapons, be they batons, sprays or firearms are essential skills all officers need to know. The last thing you want is for your own weapon to be used against you.
