This thread is inspired by the military H2H thread I am just wondering do the police and law enforcement community receive hand to hand defensive training. And I am including restraining techniques. I imagine it is more important for them than military as their primary function is not to kill their enemies, especially someone like a corrections officers. Many police officers I see carry a retractable baton even. I know they carry guns also, but are they just allowed to shoot a suspect in the legs if they run away or do they have to try and tackle them first?
