Philippines and US Conduct Law Enforcement Training

Members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police are being taken through a Taser training course by Marines from 3rd Law Enforcement Battalion, III Marine Headquarters Group at Fort Bonifacio, Philippines on Aug. 04, 2014 during the Non-Lethal Weapons Executive Seminar 2014.

The effective use of non-lethal weapons can be extremely valuable during rescue missions, for force protection in civil disturbances, while controlling rioting and prisoners of war, for checkpoint of convoy operations, HA/DR operations, or in situations in which civilians are used to mask a military attack.
