Important message from the CEO

Measured Response to an Attack!

Everybody has the right to defend themselves and others but how we go about it is very important, defence to the attack must always be a reasonable and proportionate response. its important to note that once you have someone in a restraint position to only use enough force to prevent them from struggling but also be aware if they are struggling is it because they can't breath, if they are not struggling then ease up on the restraint and always talk to the person and make sure that they can breathe to prevent positional asphyxia, need to note that people don't always become aggressive through rage but could be panic, medical condition or Mental Health that's why its important to also take into account the welfare of the attacker and use the correct response with minimal harm but maximum effect. Remember every action you take must be justified.
