PPCT Defensive Tactics Instructor

The PPCT Defensive Tactics System is the first subject control system developed through tactical, legal medical research.  Tactically, the system addresses the most common type of resistance that officers may encounter, allowing the instructor to maximize training on related techniques.  Legally, the PPCT System teaches a simple use of force continuum that clarifies the appropriate force level for every level of resistance.  Medical research was conducted on every PPCT technique to refine technique efficiency and to ensure the medical implications were proportional to the level of resistance.

Traffic Incident Management - TIMS

The impact of traffic incidents on highway operations, reliability, and safety is well known and alarming.  About 25 percent of all delays are caused by traffic incidents.  Congestion costs are counted in hundreds of billions of dollars and wasted fuel is measured in billions of gallons.  More importantly, traffic incidents pose a significant safety risk to both responders and travelers.  The likelihood of a secondary crash increases with each minute that an incident remains unresolved.  Clearing incident scenes quickly with a well-coordinated, multi-disciplinary team of first responders and transportation personnel is an important means of reducing the risk of secondary crashes and congestion delays.
