Law Enforcement

All law enforcement officers and jailers in North Carolina receive training in subject control arrest techniques or SCAT during their basic school. There is currently no mandated inservice training requirement for SCAT after BLET. These techniques and skills are perishable if not reviewed on a regular basis. When faced with an assaultive subject it could make all the difference in the outcome of a situation. Advanced subject control techniques is an ongoing course that teaches 23 advanced techniques from Gracie Survival Tactics (GST). These advanced techniques build off of the basic SCAT that officers learned in BLET. Techniques can be practiced until officers become proficient. Recommended attire is uniform trousers, tactical pants or sweat pants, t-shirt or sweat shirt. All classes will be instructed by Pete Herron, Subject Control Arrest Techniques instructor and Gracie Survival Tactics Instructor. Fee is waived for qualified officers.
