Reasonable Force Options Book

Law Enforcement Reasonable Force Options PIDT

The P.I.D.T. Method is built upon the concept of officer safety and control. Of paramount importance in all situations is the safety of the officers involved. I believe that through diligent practice you will develop the skill and ability to apply the knowledge gained in the study of the "System" not only in the gymnasium, but in real life stressful situations on the street.
