Event Description

Field Force Operations (FFO) (PER-200)

The three-day Field Force Operations (FFO) course provides law enforcement and security officers with instruction in protest types and actions, legal considerations, responsibilities of mobile field force teams, and crowd-control methods. The course culminates with a series of hands-on activities that allow responders to practice all of the learned skills (baton-holding positions, mass-arrest procedures, and riot-control formations) in a realistic context.

Below are some, but not all, of the critical skill sets learned during this training program:

  • Identify considerations of a protest situation.
  • Use equipment to control crowds.
  • Execute positions in crowd-control squad formations.
  • Position yourself within a mass-arrest team to apprehend, search, and detain a subject.
