STOPS Instructor

December 9 @ 8:00 am - December 11 @ 5:00 pm


There are nearly 4500 STOPS Instructors throughout the United States.  Officers completing this course will be certified to INSTRUCT officers in the STOPS officer survival program.  Upon completion of the STOPS program, your officers will be able to execute vehicle stops SAFELY, 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 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 assaults.

The STOPS program is based on research from officers injured or killed in the line of duty.  We then developed strategies and tactics that countered the assaults, significantly increasing the officer’s survival probability.  The STOPS program is nationally and internationally recognized as the leading program in tactical/officer survival training available.

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.  The officer’s goal during the course is to always think about the safest way to deal with every situation while recognizing danger cues.  STOPS students will dominate through superior training and a warrior mindset when an assault is attempted.

STOPS training is realistic with both classroom and dynamic field exercises.  These classes will also include our bonus force-on-force training.  Upon obtaining instructor-level certification, instructors will be certified to teach the “STOPS Tactical” Officers Survival System for 36 months.
