We founded Safe-Sight Consulting in 2017 as a result of observing what we perceived as a lack of appropriate training in private and professional settings. These shortcomings, along with the expanding mentality of fear and loss of control in our society, spotlighted the need for a new path toward safey and security for all individuals.
We believe that combining our knowledge, mindset, and communication skills will serve the purposes of bringing individualized training to professionals and private citizens while taking into consideration the duties, abilities and ages of the people we train.
We provide professional personnel and private individuals a realistic, individualized safety and security training program as it pertains to their current duties and abilities.
Security /Law Enforcement Training
Security and law enforcement personnel are critical to saving lives in workplace violence and a multitude of various other situations. We provide superior and unique training to these professions.
Our intensive physical tactics program has been refined from over three decades of professional experience of implementing and observing what has worked, and as importantly, what has not worked. With this information in mind, we are able to supplement traditional trainings in order to more quickly adapt to the reality of the officer's challenges on the street.
The real world de-escalation skills we provide in conjunction with the physical tactics are designed to improve the officer's ability to successfully complete their duties while at the same time prevent and limit the severity of physical interactions officers encounter.
One natural result of this philosophy is directed toward limiting liability for the officer's respective agency.
We provide private citizens, including youth, with verbal and physical techniques and tactics so that they can "own" their personal security. Pistol and rifle classes are also available pursuant to the wishes and needs of the student.
In addition, we provide self-defense guidance and knowledge on Indiana's Use of Force law. The ability to locate relevant, current regulations and case law is the first step in understanding your ability to use force against another individual.
While we do not provide legal advice, our real-world experience does allow us to provide our students with insight into the mentality and process of post-incident investigations and prosecutions. This insight is paramount to training (pre-incident) for use of force because it defines our boundaries and reinforces the mentality that avoidance is the most secure path to follow when the ultimate goal is survival.
Barry The Badger Youth Safety Program
YOU'VE TAUGHT YOUR CHILDREN NOT TO TALK TO STRANGERS; HAVE YOU EVER TAUGHT THEM NOT TO LISTEN TO STRANGERS!?
Our unique Barry the Badger Youth Safety Program is tailored in an age specific fashion that enables children of all ages to see and keep distance from possible dangerous situations by focusing on the time prior to the situation. By incorporating concrete symbolism to the idea of child safety, this innovative Program exemplifies that regardless of your age or ability, everyone can reach their full potential with the correct instruction and mindset.
However, we believe child safety is a team effort. Our program promotes the interactive relationship between the child and the caregiver and we achieve that idea in the class by exhibiting activities that the child and caregiver can carry outside of the classroom. Practicing these activities on a regular basis can enable effective communication between the child and the caregiver and can develop a security minded lifestyle that the child can carry with them throughout their life.
We provide realistic, individualized security plans for business personnel basing the training on the psychology of de-escalation with an emphasis on safe evasion. Our experience shows us that security training is not a "one size fits all" philosophy.
Most safety training is focused on security and law enforcement as being the first responders. Thus, we have seen a lack of importance provided to the front-line staff.
A focus of our training is based on the idea that the most critical point of contact in a workplace violence situation is at the inception of the incident.
