Oc Pepper Spray
To use OC Pepper Spray responsibly, an officer must know how to deploy it in a safe and ethical manner. Northwest Enforcement personally teaches this course to ensure officers know how to use and deploy pepper spray in a way that is safe and controlled for everyone involved.
Training Description: Participants will learn what OC is and how the spray is made, when and how to appropriately deploy it, how to decontaminate and how to document and report when OC is used. Instructors review company policy, use of force protocols, and how to care for a suspect. Participants learn about defensive techniques for carrying and deploying pepper spray, what the physiological impacts are, impacts of spraying at different distances, how to transition to handcuffing and other defensive tools when necessary. Participants will also learn about legal restrictions and implications.
