Use of forceThe right to use force is a right of an individual or authority to settle conflicts or preventcertain actions by using force to either: a) dissuade another party from a particularcourse of action, or b) physically intervene to stop them. In nations of the developedworld and the developing world, governments allow police, citizen, corrections, or othersecurity personnel to employ force to actively prevent imminent commission of crime, oreven for deterrence. It may also be exercised by the executive branch (i.e., through thepresident, prime minister, premier, governor, or mayor) of a political jurisdiction,deploying the police or military to maintain public order. The use of force is governed bystatute and is usually authorized in a progressive series of actions, referred to as a "useof force continuum.Use of force continuum:The use of force may be standardized by a use of force continuum, which presentsguidelines as to the degree of force appropriate in a given situation. One sourceidentifies five very generalized steps, increasing from least use of force to greatest. It isonly one side of the model, as it does not give the levels of subject resistance that meritthe corresponding increases in force. Each successive level of force is meant todescribe an escalating series of actions an officer may take to resolve a situation, andthe level of force used rises only when a lower level of force would be ineffective indealing with the situation.1. Presence (using the effect of the presence of an authority figure on a subject)2.Verbalization (commanding a subject)3.Empty hand control (using empty hands to search, relieve weapons, immobilize, orotherwise control a subject)4.Intermediate weapons (using non-lethal chemical, electronic or impact weapons on asubject)5.Deadly Force (using any force likely to cause permanent injury or death to a subject)Use of force continuums can be further broken down.For example:You arrive on a person with a knife- Tell suspect to drop the knife
- You apply OC spray or TASER- You apply the use of Deadly ForceRadio CommunicationsFigure A: NATO Phonetic AlphabetA Alpha K Kilo U Uniform 0 ZeroB Bravo L Lima V Victor 1 Wun (One)C Charlie M Mike W Whiskey 2 TwoD Delta N November X X-ray 3 Tree (Three)E Echo O Oscar Y Yankee 4 Fower (Four)F Foxtrot P Papa Z Zulu 5 Fife (Five)G Golf Q Quebec 6 SixH Hotel R Romeo . decimal (point) 7 SevenI India S Sierra .

Transmission willcontinue with the last word correctly sent. The correct version is…ETA Estimated time of arrival.ETD Estimated time of departure.ETR Estimated time of return or repair.FIGURESFROM The originator of this message.I SPELL I shall spell the next word phonetically.OPS NORMAL Used to say the patrol is normal in all respects, “operations normal”.OUTUsed following the last line of the message transmitted, signifying theend of the transmission and nothing follows.

Roger & wilcoRoger = I have heard and understood your transmission.Wilco = I have heard and understood your instructions, and willcomply with them.Thus: Roger Wilco = I have heard and understood yourtransmission, and I have heard and understood your instructions,and will comply with them.Roger Wilco is poor radio etiquette, and should not be said. In anyunit I served in or with, saying that would have gotten you kickedoff the radio. Instead, you just say, “Wilco.”OutOut doesnt necessarily mean you are shutting down or switchingchannels. It just means you have said and heard all you need tosay and hear, and you are ending that conversation. There are 2schools of thought on “out”. One school says that the originator of aradio conversation always finishes it, and thus is the one whoshould say out. The second school says that you never outhigher (i.e. you never tell someone who outranks you that theconversation is over; they tell you when it is over). In practice(officers being officers), the latter is more commonPHASE ONE COMPLETE
PHASE TWO STARTEmergency vehicle operationSiren tonesWhen responding to a call or a scene you are to have your siren on NO EXCEPTIONSWail the most used tone good for driving down straight roads and non-busyintersectionsYelp used for busy roads and busy intersectionsHyperyelp or phase used for extreme conditions I.E going down the wrong way on astreet or extremely busy roadAirhorn used as an addon to get the attention of bystanders and trafficDriving Courses (I.G)1. Intersections You will drive down the traffic ways on the airport andevery time you come to an intersection you will turn making use of the sirens anda second instructor as civilian traffic until you have completed one stretch of therunway2. Close quarter driving Using the parking garage at the airport the studentwill drive into the garage proceeding up to the top floor than driving back down gradingthe damage to the students car if the car is smoking or heavily damaged the studentMUST repeat this segment3. Wet Road Using the dirt track at the airport the student will drive down the entireroad from one end to the other until student reaches the pavement the student has 3chances if his unit completely leaves the road he will stop the instructor will take noteand he will continue if all 3 chances have been used this student must repeat thesegment
Traffic Stops2 instructors will be needed 1 as the civilian 1 as another 321. 10-11s The student will park with their front bumper angled out from behindthe suspects’ car ( the students bumper should be 3-4 feet away from thesuspects’ car)
2. 10-11 with another 32 (non felony) the instructor will than teachhow to park with another unit on standby this is with the other 32 6-7 feet behindthe initial pull over unit
3. 10-11 with 32 felony stop the second arriving unit will disable lcpdfrand park beside the first 32 with their nose of the car pointing towards thesuspects’ car creating a V shape
Intermediate weaponsFollowing the use of force guide the next step after you trying to grab the subject and heis noncompliant this is the next step. Intermediate weapons is a term used for less thanlethal weapons this includes beanbag rounds, peperball, Tasers, OC spray, CS gas andother less than lethal weapons. One of the best weapons to start with is your batonwitch every officer is issued. If the subject is still noncompliant or has weapons thisincludes but not limited to a knife or a fire arm not in play (fire arm is down but still insuspects hands) in this case the next step would be the TASER. A Taser is anelectroshock weapon sold by Taser International. It uses electrical current to disrupt voluntarycontrol of muscles causing "neuromuscular incapacitation". Someone struck by a Taserexperiences stimulation of his or her sensory nerves and motor nerves, resulting in stronginvoluntary muscle contractions. Tasers do not rely only on pain compliance, except when usedin Drive Stun mode, and are thus preferred by some law enforcement over non-Taser stun gunsand other electronic control weapons. You can activate this in LCPDFR by ALT+T you willneed to keep the suspect tased by re engaging the subject until another officer arrives.FirearmsFire arms is the officers last resort in the use of force continuum this means all otherattempts or resources have failed and the subject is getting more violent and may causesevere bodily harm or death. When engaging a subject you will fire two (2) rounds intomid mass (torso) of the subject this should take down most people. If not you will go towhat is known as the failure drill this is where you fire a double tap (2 rounds) into thesubjects torso and one in the head. Head shots are NOT recommended for the initialengagement due to harder to hit and the risk of ricochet.Tactical MovementRemember life before limb! Use cover there are two types of cover. Concealment coverand hard cover. Concealment cover and hard cover are best used together for examplehiding behind a cruiser or a car or building. Concealment cover is something that willhide your body and will be hard to spot from a distance but may not be bullet proof.Hard cover is cover that offers bullet resistant material for example a median or a wallthat may stop bullets but may be seen from a distance and be obvious for the subject.Your best cover will be your car if you can stay near your engine block this provides themost cover as bullets have trouble piercing through its doors are not recommended dueto the lack of armour in the doors.
