Roy Bedard
Hi George, I'm taking suggestions!!! I've covered weapon defense, close quarter combatives, legal issues, fitness development, competition techniques, ground defense, and weapon handling in past years. I am happy to repeat some of these topics or explore new ones if the students want to discuss emerging trends.

One of your sessions definitely should be "fitness development and competition techniques." I'm going to be stressing the health issue and importance for training correctly to extend practitioners' training career. Too little is emphasized on correct training in the search for the quickest way to accomplish physical goals. . . with consequences overlooked! What you do with these subjects blends perfectly into the goals of this year's SummerFest!

Police Procedure, Self Defense and Governmental Use of Force

Roy Bedard has over 25 Years experience in law enforcement, private security and corrections use of force training, addressing force transactions in the field, in facilities, state prisons and county jails. As a career field and classroom instructor, Roy Bedard is gifted with the ability to clearly articulate and describe the often confusing and complex science of law enforcement decision making and use of force in easy to understand terms. He has helped legal counselors, administrative personnel and civilian jurors make sense of the contributing factors which justify or invalidate the use of force.

Mr. Bedard has consulted and trained law enforcement officers throughout the US and abroad since 1986 on issues including, empty hand tactics, proper use and application of handcuffs and restraints, use of police impact weapons, deployment of chemical aerosols and sprays and the use of firearms and dart firing stun guns. He has testified in deposition and open court to matters involving use of force decision making, arrest procedures, street interdiction, private security permissions and limitations, jail classification issues, facility security, policy review of operational procedures and cell extraction methods. He is an approved expert in combat stress, and has offered testimony in civilian claims of self defense. He has never been rejected as an expert in any jurisdiction where he has been asked to offer testimony.

Mr. Bedard is available for a preliminary consultation to determine if he may provide expert assistance in both civil and criminal cases in State or Federal court.
