This POST-certified course was designed to train law enforcement to conduct vehicle pins to immobilize a suspect in public places, especially when officers perceive a high probability of a pursuit ensuing during a traditional enforcement stop.  For many years, the only two options were to attempt to apprehend a violent suspect at a structure, or to attempt a vehicle stop and hope they didn't run.  The Vehicle Containment Techniques (VCT) Course provides officers with a hybrid option that takes the safety of law enforcement and the public into consideration.  

Who should attend:  Task force officers, gang units, narcotics detectives, fugitive teams, or anyone tasked with locating and arresting felony suspects.  

LOCATION:  Class may be held at various locations around the state.  See course flyer for session locations.
