The word "Procedures" in our company name signifies our dedication to not only providing superior products, but also comprehensive training in their use. ASP training focuses on clear, simple, repeatable and legally-defensible techniques and tactics, fine-tuned over decades of experience and real-world results. We feel so strongly about the importance of proper training that we provide roughly $2 million worth of training each year to law enforcement at no cost. ASP training is so effective, and so respected, that it has been adopted by agencies in over 100 countries.
In addition to the direct company training that we provide, we support and endorse a number of independent training organizations and individuals who provide private instruction – typically fee-based – in the use of ASP products and tactics.
ASP Integrated Training (Tactical Baton, Restraint and Performance Flashlight) puts no principle above simplicity. Techniques are simple to learn, easy to understand, effortless to remember, and designed to work for all officers, not just those highly skilled in psychomotor performance. ASP techniques work on the street, not just in the ideal environment of a classroom or gym. Thanks to their simplicity, ASP techniques are remembered and used on the street long after training ends.
