Cutting Edge Training

America’s Combatives and Liability Trainer Aut viam inveniam aut faciam

("I will either find a way or make one.")


CUTTING EDGE TRAINING has conducted studies for law enforcement and for specific agencies dating back to 1980.  Each study undertaken has shed new light on changes to policy and training. The results are defensible and ultimately functional for our client agencies in their decision-making and forecasting.

These, to date, have taken the form of:

Force Studies and Trends Within an Agency

We provide expert analysis of your officers’ force response, comparing their force employment against national, state, and local norms.  We can provide the police manager the ability to maximize control over policy and training, to better reflect the needs of the agency in the force response.  This is a vital tool—-knowing how and when your officers respond with force allows you, the police manager, to better answer questions at every level of inquiry.

Policy Analysis, Comparison, Critique, and Development

Our staff provides you with competent, up-to-the-minute civil liability protection analyzing, comparing, and critiquing your high-liability policies to ensure you have the strongest, most defensible policies available.  CUTTING EDGE TRAINING has provided this service to literally hundreds of agencies throughout the United States of America.

Peace Officer Murders and Assaulted

In order to understand the physical threat to our officers, it is helpful to understand the actual manner in which officers are feloniously assaulted and murdered.  A comprehensive study of the case helps to reveal these facts.  As a result, a comparative analysis is conducted to determine the commonality between the murders and to make suggestions affecting the training of peace officers in your agency, your region, and the nation. CUTTING EDGE TRAINING stands ready to perform this Officer Murdered and Assaulted study at no charge to any agency, jurisdiction, state, or territory.  This investigation and analysis determines how your officers are at risk, and what can be done through relevant training to prevent and mitigate these deadly assaults.
