As new as he is, all he needs is to keep lifting consistently.

How long were you on before retirement? Hope the retirement is going good for you, I still have some time to go(38 y/o currently).

The in house DT instructors are nice, but if you're talking devoted departmental training hours they are so few and far between in my experience at my agency and most every other one I know of. Maybe a couple 2-4 hours sessions per year. This was part of the reason I gave up my DT Instructor certification, because of wanting to add to our limited training time and having new fangled ideas of getting people more interested and eager to participate.

JTM, I was on the department for about 25.5 years. Enough for me. When I came on, we didn't have any electronic gadgets to get people to comply. You asked them, then told them, then made them. Physical confrontations were the norm back then.

I had to take 10 kg off my squat today because I wasn't going deep enough so hopefully I progress well from this point. I can currently bench more than I can squat how strange is that ?

I've been a LEO for almost 15yrs. My first 5-6yrs there was a lot of physical confrontations, but I was in my early 20's. I'm now a Correctional Officer and I am always out numbered by a min. of 50-100 to 1... The last 9yrs or so. I've learned that just the way you speak and carry yourself, can make your job a lot easier. At the end of the day. You are the one who has to go home.

The biggest part is just trusting your training.. Be confident, don't hesitant or 2nd guess yourself.

you basically have to run through a few cones within 20 seconds, the power clean should help with this

I'm not a big fan of tazers, or the over-reliance officers have gone to utilizing them instead of going hands on. I was certified, but didn't carry it on my duty belt when I came back to the street and kept it in my bag in the car. Apparently a Captain didn't like that and basically said that I had to wear it, I said no and said they could keep the thing and handed it back since its not required to have one.

Didn't understand the argument of having to wear it, I had one if I needed it going into a call plus 90% of the other officers carried a tazer, but didn't want it on my belt due to comfort etc for being big and tall in a small car for 10 hour days. I told the Capt it was like my patrol rifle, shotgun, or riot gear they were there when I needed them to take with, but by no means did I need to carry them every time I got out of the car. Oh well....

Absolutely 100% correct Ramrod! Knowing how to verbally defuse a situation without it becoming physical is the way to go. More often than not it'll save you from getting hurt(most important) and the suspect also(who could claim police brutality and that can of worms). Be firm and fair with a commanding presence, but not arrogant, cocky, or unapproachable, be human and not an automaton.

They actually only started using Tasers in the Victoria police 2 years ago and currently only used in a few regions were weapons are used against police. I personally would like to have a Taser with me because I see it as an additional option to resolve a serious incident. But obviously they cant be overused.
