In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses:
- Handling hyper aggressive or hyper passive suspects on high risk deployments.
- Taking role play seriously in training to properly prepare for high risk scenarios.
- Component training for good scenario training.
- Backup neutrality and realistic role playing.
- There must be clear communication between the canine handler and the SWAT team with highly aggressive suspects.
- Your dog must be a well conditioned athlete to endure a long and powerful fight.
- Passive engagement requires training your basic bite work so the dog understands it brings the prey alive, or the threat is neutralized by its actions.
- Passivity is a threat in police work and must be trained.
“Training must create the habit of engagement using a variety of methods of awakening confidence, civil aggression, heightened prey aggression, a variety of equipment including hidden equipment, sleeves and suits, including muzzle and good solid targeting.” — Jerry Bradshaw
