TCLEOSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Unit Goal: 18.1. The student will demonstrate and know when to use appropriate strategies of defense (Use of Force is a prerequisite for this section).
A baton is classified as a weapon capable of inflicting serious bodily injury or death;however, impact weapons may be used in lawful situations requiring a degree of force greater than the use of weaponless strategies but less than the use of deadly weapons/force. [(Penal Code, 46.01(1), 46.15.]
When an officer is a member of a tactical squad in a crowd or riot control formation, the baton may be used to move, separate, disperse or deny a person access to a structure or through an area.
When an officer is attacked by a suspect armed with a non-firearm type weapon, the officer may use the baton or disarm, distract, or disable the suspect, or to hold the suspect at bay until additional assistance arrives.
When the officer is confronted by several suspects who are threatening the officer, when the suspects are capable of carrying out the threats, and when they make an overt act to carry out the threats, the officer may use the baton to fend off an attack or assault and make an arrest.
When the officer is confronted by a suspect(s) who the officer has reasonable cause to believe committed a crime, and the suspect(s) refuses or fails to comply with the verbal commands prior to searching or handcuffing, the baton may be used to obtain compliance.
Provide each student with a set of handcuffs and the opportunity to apply handcuffs on other students. Stress safety throughout the lessons.
