Defensive Tactics Instructor
Wylie PD has several officers trained in the various aspects of defensive tactics. Officers are expected to use the least amount of force necessary to affect an arrest or detention. Officers need numerous options to ensure they can perform their duties while providing the safest possible outcome for both the officer and the suspect/offender.
Instructors train Wylie PD officers in the following areas:
Verbal Judo, pepper / oleoresin capsicum (OC) spray, ASP baton, handcuffing techniques, Taser deployment, pressure point control tactics (PPCT) and less-lethal shotgun training.
Officers are required to take an initial training course and then refresher classes at specified times to ensure they are proficient in all areas.
