Pepper Spray Training
What is Oleoresin Capsicum?
Commonly called O.C. or “Pepper Spray,” Oleoresin Capsicum is a convenient aerosol spray that is used as a non-lethal protection device. When used before hands-on defense in the escalation of force, there is less risk of injuries to all parties, and in most cases, the proper use results in ending the attack or resistance without having to go to the next level of force.
The effects of O.C. temporarily affects the skin, face, eyes, and respiratory system of the attacker for a short period of time.
O.C. is reliable and allows you the opportunity to escape, end an attack, or used to gain compliance as a non-lethal use of force tool for officers. O.C., once used, can last from 10 – 30 minutes on the average person but washes off with cold water.
