The Response to Resistance course (LE RTR) is a truly unique Use of Force escalation and de-escalation training program designed to teach law enforcement and similar professions how to handle subject resistance and aggression in a truly objectively reasonable manner. The seven hours of legal and practical curriculum in this course are grounded in data and refined by decades of experience from leading Use of Force experts Sam Faulkner and Shawn Chitwood.
What sets this course apart is the data-backed approach using information from Sam Faulkner’s extensive and ongoing research project – the Response to Resistance survey. To date, this survey has collected tens of thousands of responses from law enforcement and the community they serve to validate Use of Force techniques that are both legal and universally acceptable. Mr. Faulkner has testified as an expert witness in more than 450 use of force cases and continuously applies lessons learned from these cases to techniques taught to officers.
