Protecting Those Who Protect.® It is a corporate goal. A statement of mission. An approach to doing business.
ASP Training is a service that we provide, not a profit center from which we benefit. Conducted on seven continents, the techniques are universal. The curriculum is constant. The instruction is dynamic. Each officer completing ASP training will endure the most rigorous curriculum of its type in the world. This is a program for the street officer. Easy to learn. Effective when used. Defensible in court. ASP techniques are designed to work for all officers, not just those with a high level of physical skill. These are honest techniques. Over a decade of experience has proven that they work on the street, not just in the ideal environment of a classroom or gymnasium. Simple to learn and easy to remember. ASP techniques will be used long after training has ended.

Armament Systems and Procedures has three levels of certification:
ASP Basic Certification (ABC) for field personnel
ASP Instructor Certification (AIC) for agency Instructors
ASP Trainer Certification (ATC) for Instructor Trainers.

The Trainers

ASP training is the most widely utilized baton program in the profession. All ASP Trainers are experienced law enforcement personnel, not civilian martial artists. Each Trainer is selected based upon their operational experience and training competence. Each has completed a rigorous competency based certification process in both operational use of the ASP Baton and ASP instructional techniques.

The Corporation

Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP) is the largest manufacturer of Tactical Batons® and Tactical Handcuffs™ in the world. The company supplies impact weapons and restraints to major police agencies in over 80 countries. The ASP Tactical Baton is the dominant intermediate force impact weapon in the law enforcement community. ASP products are divided into six major categories: Batons, Restraints, Training, Pepper Spray, and Lighting.

FACTS

ADVANTAGE:

This premium quality striking bag is the original “light bag” for law enforcement defensive measures and impact weapon instruction. Its introduction pioneered the use of dynamic simulations in police training. It made possible the safe use of full contact strikes in a law enforcement training environment.

SPECIFICATION:

· Concave design
· Rounded edges
· Black impact weapon covering
· Poured finish
· Nylon mesh reinforcement
· Open cell foam core
· Offset handle for elbow protection
· Support strap
· Leather reinforced stress points
· Pressure release holes
· Perimeter pressure neutralization

PERFORMANCE:

Training Bags facilitate safe, dynamic countermeasures and baton instruction. They allow full impact strikes while training body mechanics, balance and stability.



Training Batons

FACTS

ADVANTAGE:

The Training Baton and Carrier were designed for use with the ASP Training Bag. They allow the dynamic simulation of street confrontations. A safe training environment may be maintained while allowing full contact strikes in a controlled setting. The Carrier allows the Training Baton to be worn, drawn and secured during training drills.

SPECIFICATION:

· Wide, cushioned striking surface
· Foamed vinyl grip
· Hard rubber retention grommet
· Offset aluminum locking collar
· Flexible inner frame rod
· Protective tip disk
· Washable cover
· Replaceable foam core
· Cable tie cover retention
· Velcro
· Variable width belt carrier
· Available in 21" and 26" lengths

PERFORMANCE:

Training Batons allow safe, dynamic impact weapon instruction. Carriers insure a safe, efficient training environment by allowing officers to retain batons during all phases of instruction.

Training Handcuffs

FACTS


ADVANTAGE:

Handcuff Training requires repetition to master basic skills. The design of ASP Training Cuffs permits field quality restraints to be applied exactly as on the street. However, the Lock Set of these handcuffs allows the student to rapidly remove the cuffs for re-application. The restraint dramatically increases the number of possible training sequences. When the cuffs are double locked, removal procedures can be trained. To assure identification as Training Handcuffs, both the restraints and the Lock Set are color coded red.

SPECIFICATION:

· Stainless steel frame
· Polymer overmold
· Chain or Hinge
· Standard or Airweight
· Rotary release
· Functional double lock
· Red overmold
· Red Lock Set

PERFORMANCE:

Training Handcuffs are applied using standard Rock & Lock techniques. The cuffs can be immediately released as “subjects” rotate their wrists. Once double locked, standard uncuffing techniques can be trained. Training Handcuffs are identified by their red overmold and red Lock Set.



Redguns

FACTS

ADVANTAGE:

All too frequently, law enforcement officers have been killed in a training environment with “unloaded” firearms. Red handled weapons become indistinguishable from live firearms when held in the hand. Aluminum castings are heavy and cannot be distinguished from stainless weapons at a distance. The Red Gun Series is lightweight and readily distinguishable as a training weapon. In addition, the extreme detail and precision manufacture of these training devices allows their use in weapon retention and holster security drills.

SPECIFICATION:

· Identical to duty firearms in:
- Dimension
- Feel
- Control placement
- Handling
· Easily distinguished as “safe”
· Lightweight
· Forgiving surface
· No sharp edges
· Corrosion resistant
· Rugged
· Precise detail
· Fits duty holsters
· Patent 5,451,162

PERFORMANCE:

The Red Gun Series is ideal for all types of scenario training. The precision fit allows their use with duty holsters. Red Radios and Flashlights are valuable additions to sudden assault training on the firing line. The flexible Red Knife allows officers to rehearse responses to edged weapon attacks. The Red Gun Series can also be specially produced to the exact weight of a loaded duty firearm.
