Upon completion of the STOPS program your officers will be able to SAFELY execute vehicle stops, pedestrian contacts, commercial vehicle stops, vehicle extractions, drug interdiction stops, and high risk (felony) stops. Officers will be trained in risk assessments, and proven methods to counter both felonious and accidental assaults. Vehicle stops will be broken into 12 ambush zones for the officer to be aware of, and escape techniques to counter and defeat any type of assault. The STOPS program is based upon research from officers that have been injured or killed in the line of duty. We then developed strategies and tactics that countered the assaults, which will greatly increase the officers survival probability. The STOPS program is nationally recognized as the leading program in tactical/officer survival training. Vehicle stops will be divided into low risk, unknown risk, and high risk. Each category has pre-planned options to minimize the chances of being assaulted by both accidental and felonious means. One of the goals is for the officers to always be thinking about the safest way to deal with every situation, and for the officer to recognize the danger cues. If an assault occurs our students will dominate through superior training and a warrior mindset.

The STOPS program is currently instructed at police academies nationwide as THE safest way to conduct traffic stops. If an officer is expected to conduct traffic stops, he/she should at least be trained how to conduct them safely. Our motto says it all "STOPS SAVES COPS"! STOPS training is realistic and extremely dynamic with both classroom and dynamic field exercises. These classes will also include our bonus simunitions force on force training, and our tactical live fire course. The cost of this Instructor level certification course is only $525. Instructors will then be certified to teach the STOPS Officers Survival System for 36 months. We will also be re- certifying STOPS Instructors during day 2 and 3. The cost of re cert is only $350.
