ELEVATE YOUR ENFORCEMENT WITH A TRAINING COURSE
The course will be specific to the needs of your police or security department, and will consist of several sections to provide your officers with all the information they need to know. Our courses feature an introduction section with a briefing and pre-test, and a training section of all the necessary bike patrol techniques and safety procedures. They conclude with evaluations and a final test, which will result in a certification upon completion.
