Training Testimonials 

   

"PepperBall’s Police Training Tactics training far exceeded my expectations. The techniques taught were effective, realistic for all officers, and simplistic and offer safety while bringing suspects into custody being the key points. The instruction was very well put together and professionally presented. Each instructor has extensive experience and unique perspectives due to each being from a different part of the country. They used real world videos as training aids from encounters they were involved in, which validated their material even more. This wasn’t a product sales class, it was tactics training for real problems we could potentially face on any given day."

John Hall, Walton County Sheriff’s Office

"PepperBall’s Patrol Tactics class was an extremely well put together course. The instructors were very knowledgeable and brought experience from all over the country. The classroom portion of this class covered PepperBall weapon systems Use of Force, De-Escalation and High Risk Vehicle Stops...We were taken to the range and familiarized with the PepperBall systems, and qualified as end users. We were given training aids and exposed to numerous realistic scenarios. After each scenario an instructor conducted a debrief covering the incident and ensured that the students were able to justify their actions. Additionally, the instructors showed various vehicle extraction techniques to remove a noncompliant subject from a vehicle. This course gave me new techniques and principles that could be applied on patrol tomorrow. "

Jeff Taylor, Walton County Sheriff’s Office

"The PepperBall training is second to none and courses have been completed by thousands of officers. In addition, the annual certification cost for PepperBall costs 75% less compared to annual certification for less-lethal options."
