The motto “Protecting Those Who Protect” says it all. For more than forty years, ASP has had a single-minded focus on providing law enforcement officers with the finest tools for the safe performance of their duties, and industry-leading training in the use of those tools. Every day, professionals in over 100 countries trust our products and training with their lives – so they can’t afford less than the very best. Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP) is the largest manufacturer and the industry’s foremost supplier of Tactical Batons®, Tactical Handcuffs™, and Performance Lighting to over 4 million state and federal law enforcement, and military professionals in the world – those who demand the absolute best. The ASP Tactical Baton is the dominant intermediate force impact weapon in the law enforcement community. ASP training is the most widely utilized baton program in the profession. The techniques are universal. The curriculum is constant. The instruction is dynamic. Each officer completing ASP training will endure the most rigorous curriculum of its type in the world. This is a program for the street officer. Easy to learn. Effective when used. Defensible in court. ASP techniques are designed to work for all officers, not just those with a high level of physical skill. These are honest techniques with over a decade of experience and has been proven that they work on the street, not just in the ideal environment of a classroom or gymnasium. Simple to learn and easy to remember. ASP techniques will be used long after training has ended. While no training program can assure that an agency or officer will not be sued. However, field evaluations have demonstrated that ASP training reduces the number of injuries sustained by both officers and assailants, and reduces the number of lawsuits filed for excessive force. The ASP program is based upon extensive input from the nation’s most senior police trial attorneys. The techniques are court defensible and are backed by the nation’s most experienced use-of-force consultants.

Security Licensing / DOPL
Certification in this training program does not automatically authorize an individual to carry or use batons. It is the responsibility of the individual student to obtain permission from their agency or company to carry any less-lethal device and follow all laws.
The information contained within this training program may only be used by security officers while in the performance of official duties. Any unauthorized, illegal, or unethical use of the information in this training program is prohibited.
Although every effort has been made for this training course, manual, and related materials to be complete and accurate, it is impossible to predict, discuss or plan for every circumstance or situation which might arise in the course of training, or when encountering a resistive or aggressive individual. Each trainee assumes the risk of loss, injury, and damages associated with this training and the use of the information obtained through this program.
Therefore, the trainee must always take into consideration the trainee’s experience, physical abilities, professional responsibilities, agency procedures, legal requirements and the recommendations and techniques contained in this training course, manual, and related materials, before deciding which techniques should be used and under what circumstances.
Currently there is no state certificate or permit required for a security officer to carry a baton or handcuffs in Utah. However, most contract security companies as well as their clients have policies which require a security officer to obtain proper training and certification in the use of all less lethal devices and restraints such as Baton, Taser, OC Spray and Handcuffs before they can be carried or used by a security officer.
If a licensed security officer abuses and/or fails to use these items correctly, the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) could file criminal charges against the security officer and revoke his/her license. You may also be terminated by your employer and open yourself, your employer and client to Civil lawsuits. You must be aware of the following:
