Agencies rarely provide any concealment work to educate on the off duty or Detective / Undercover techniques and safe techniques to present or return the handgun to the holster, not to mention fighting from concealment.
This class is going to cover the dynamics of carrying and deploying a concealed handgun as a daily responsibility. This will focus on the concealment, deployment and use of a handgun as a primary weapon while conducting Police Operations in a plain clothes assignment as well as off duty carry.

All handgun presentations will come from a concealed holster. All methods of concealment (open or closed / button down or polo/t-shirt, off the body carry) will be addressed.

All handgun presentations will come from a concealed holster, (open or closed / button down or polo/t-shirt,) all will be addressed.
