Close Quarters Battle Institute (CQB-I) provides services for the sole purpose of advancing officer safety and reducing workplace injuries.  While technological advances such as soft body armor have had a significant impact in reducing deaths and injuries, there still is much to be done to protect the officer on the beat.


Everyday in America, law enforcement agencies and police officers are subjected to litigation resulting from inadequate training.  The aftermath of a critical incident can pose many questions for agencies and individuals alike.  In many cases, officers did not possess the skill set requisite to ensure public and personal safety.  Agencies may not have the staff or resources available to ensure that personnel receive vital skills training.  We offer a full array of services to assist you and your agency in reducing the risk of deaths, injuries and liability.  


Our Remedial Firearms Training Program (RFTP) is specifically designed for those officers who need extra help to develop firearms and tactical skills.  Our system of learning will improve officer safety, reduce liability and reduce costs.


Whether it is an officer-involved shooting or a complaint of excessive force, we can provide trained professionals with real world experience to help you through these difficult and often traumatic situations. Our trained professionals can analyze, reconstruct, and provide objective feedback to improve your organization’s risk management. Whether you need an expert witness, management analyst, grant writer or guest lecturer, we can provide you with the services of highly skilled professionals who can meet your needs.


We provide a complete test and evaluation (T&E) program staffed by professional engineers, scientists, physicians and subject matter experts utilizing Six Sigma and Total Quality Management (TQM) processes to ensure quality and tactical viability of officer safety equipment.
