Southwestern Oklahoma State University Parks and Recreation Management Department students recently completed the park law enforcement program's custody and control course on the Weatherford campus.

The intensive course covers techniques involved in gaining control of resistive and non-resistive suspects as well as defense from assailants. 

The SWOSU park law enforcement program offers custody and control defensive tactics, law enforcement handgun, and tactical carbine courses to its students each year.  Program graduates are finding employment with a number of local, state and federal natural resource and conventional law enforcement agencies. 

Primary course instructor Aaron Hunter is an adjunct faculty member in the SWOSU Park Law Enforcement Program. An Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper since 2001, Hunter serves at Troop H in Clinton. As an Oklahoma Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) defensive tactics instructor, Hunter teaches defensive tactics for the OHP Academy and area municipal and county law enforcement agencies. 

A highly trained instructor, Hunter is a graduate of several Strategos International training courses including Physical Conflict Resolution Instructor, Russian Martial Arts, and Officer Survival in Low Light Conditions Instructor. He is also a graduate of the United States Shooting Academy Close Quarter Tactics course and many others.
