This five-day in-service class will certify students as instructors in the Vermont Criminal Justice Training Council (VTCJTC) / Monadnock - Safariland Defensive Tactics System (MDTS), the Monadnock - Safariland Expandable Baton (MEB) or Monadnock / Safariland PR-24 Side-Handle Baton, and the Oleoresin Capsicum aerosol projector.
For the baton portion of this training, officers may choose one or the other baton for instructor certification. If already certified as a baton instructor, officers will be re-certified during the training. If an officer is already certified as either an MEB or PR-24 instructor, they will have the opportunity to re-certify in that discipline and become certified as an instructor in the other if they choose to do so.
The VCJTC / Monadnock – Safariland MDTS program is a system of self-defense control and restraint techniques and tactics, which teaches officers to safely control and handcuff suspects in a wide-range of arrest situations. Officers will receive instruction on the legalities of police use-of-force, as well as instruction on how to effectively teach and certify others at the basic user-level.
This comprehensive course consists of both classroom and gym instruction. Students should be prepared for a rigorous and physically demanding week of training and should be free of any conditions that would prohibit them from effectively participating and completing the training. Attire must include a full duty belt, inert training OC, baton and gym shoes.
