Confrontations and altercations occur as a matter of course in the line of duty.  Whenever lesser use of force options do not succeed, safe and proper use of OC in a way that provides the quickest de-escalation response fron the suspect with the least risk of injury to either the suspect or the officer, may be the best option.  At Stoneridge Tactical Academy, you will learn proper spray delivery techniques using the finest and safest products on the market that will insure officer safety as the number one priority.
