Security Officer Use of Force Level I concentrates on verbal tactics and education about appropriate use of force. During Level II, Security Officers will learn physical techniques and tactics designed to reduce the likelihood of causing injury to both resistant individuals and themselves.
The course is hands on, addressing both individual and team tactics. The Security Officers will learn how to safely escort resistant patrons, safely breach the reactionary gap and apply safe control techniques. Security members will learn safe application of restraint devices on violent and resistant individuals.
The tactics are designed to fit with both the Voluntary Compliance Interview and the Security Officer Confrontation Management Model.

Principle Based Joint Locks:
A component of the Principle Based Subject Control System, principle based joint locks are the most flexible and applicable method of controlling a struggling subject. Security Officers will learn the principle of how to lock the wrist joint, elbow joint and shoulder joint. They are taught how to recognize when the joint is at the “point of immobilization” prior to causing hyper flexion, hyper extension or hyper rotation. This dramatically lowers the likelihood of causing injury to a resistant patron.
Security members will learn the simplest way to physically escort a physically resistant patron that must be removed from the premises. One, two and three member application will be shown and discussed.
Mechanical Restraint Application:
In rare instances Security Officers may be forced to arrest an individual for a criminal offence or other serious reasons. If the individual is extremely violent, use of some form of mechanical restraints such as handcuffs, Velcro straps, etc. may be needed to protect the patron or others. Safe application through the use of less injurious techniques are taught and discussed. A review of positional asphyxia is given.
