Goal : To provide the knowledge, skills and attitudes to respond to youth and special needs safety incidents. This is a defensive tactics program for security officers and service professionals- such as school staff.

Course Summary:  In our communities there are the  young and special needs individuals.  Special needs individuals can include those with medical conditions or permanent disabilities.  These conditions can be obvious or more difficult to determine. Organizations charged with a service function must have consideration towards youth and special needs individuals. When incidents occur where physical control of these individuals is needed, special  knowledge, attitudes and skills are needed.
