TASER and CCW permit training in Florida

SEXTON will hold their highly acclaimed Executive Protection training program in Orlando from 11/7 – 11/13/10.We realize that people will have conflicts with schedules, so we have made special arrangements for anyone wishing to take the TASER and/or Utah Concealed Weapon Permit course.

The TASER familiarization course will give students a thorough understanding of the TASER system and will afford them a hands-on training experience. The Instructor is a Law Enforcement specialist who has been officially certified by the TASER Corporation and has taught both Police personnel and civilians in that capacity.

John Sexton, CEO and Director of Training at the Sexton Executive Security Training Institute, recently remarked in a Press Release that TASER was more rapidly gaining a foot hold in the private sector and more jurisdictions were allowing private security personnel to carry it as a less lethal weapon.

“TASER has excellent applications for Executive Protection”, Sexton advised. “If an E.P. Agent finds him or herself in a situation where they must activate the unit, they only have to throw it down and evacuate the area. TASER guarantees to replace it with a new unit in such circumstances”.

The Utah CCW is the official UT course of instruction as mandated by the Bureau of Criminal Identification. Utah does not require permit holders to be a resident. This permit is highly sought after as it allows holders to carry concealed in more than 30 States. Everyone will receive all of the necessary paperwork to process their CCW permit after completion of the training on Sunday morning, 11/14/10

The price to attend the half day TASER training is $75.00. Attendees will receive a certificate of completion. The cost to attend the half day Utah CCW training is $150.00. Upon completion, all attendees will be given all that is required to receive their CCW permit. Please allow up to 45 days for Utah to process the application.

Aren’t the TSA Trained in I.D. Identification?

If someone told me this story, I’d have a hard time believing it myself.

I was flying out of State recently and in accordance with regulations, I brought a Government issued I.D. card with me to get through the security checkpoint.

The TSA agent looked at my Department of Criminal Justice Services I.D. and asked if I had any other I.D. such as a passport. I replied that I did not and that I did not need a passport to fly to Florida. I assured him that my goverment I.D. was sufficient.

Apparently he was not impressed by the Govt. issued security I.D. stating my credentials. He told me to step back and let the other people through. He was then joined by a female TSA officer. He whispered something to her about my I.D. and they called for a supervisor.

I was about to tell the supervisor that Goverment issued I.D.s were acceptable forms of I.D., but thankfully he already knew that. He told them to let me proceed.

Are you feeling safe yet?
