EXTRA TRAINING TO DO THE JOB RIGHT
A new security guard was given a firearm for his position but was not properly trained on how or when to use it. One night, a group of people attempted to rob the facility he was guarding and his UDT training allowed him to act under pressure, prevent the robbery, and avoid any gun fire.
A CHP officer joined UDT for supplemental practice handling his firearm. While on duty, he was involved in a shootout. He was able to neutralize the suspect, and he called UDT from the hospital to say that his UDT training saved his life. As a result, the local school district police department enrolled all of its officers in the program.
