Emotionally Disturbed Persons and MotoShot

Emotionally Disturbed Persons and Motoshot

Article written by Glen Hartman September 30, 2019

Crisis Intervention Training (CIT), using instructors and actors, is fanning out across the country. Officers are introduced to strategies meant to give them the verbal tools necessary to end incidents without injury or death. Having human interaction is fantastic unfortunately, when it comes to training for the next level of force, you cannot use an Electronic Control Device (ECD) or OC Spray on an actor.

How would you move the training to the next use of force level?

MotoShot can offer officers the opportunity to engage a simulated Emotionally Disturbed Person (EDP) and resolve the situation without shooting the subject if that is what is intended by the instructor. Once the officer has spoken the magic words, the conflict is over; if not, the officers can escalate to the next level of force to de-escalate the situation.

MotoShot can be exposed to chemical irritants or an ECD and be unaffected.

Also, if the instructor wants, he/she can remotely drop the weapon on the MotoShot to end the scenario. Officers can be confronted with the MotoShot in a variety of settings, for instance, in a hallway of a residence, outdoors moving into a crowd of bystanders, or on a sandy or rocky firing range. Only the imagination of the instructor can limit MotoShot’s effectiveness.
