Not Everyone collects F%^**^ TAGS , I'm not angry
At the same time, if anyone wants to claim to be Santa Claus, a postal worker or bipolar on the net, there's not a huge amount anyone else can do about it other than accuse a user-name of BS. If the user-name doesn't want a tag, and you're all that into getting him to prove any claim, you'll just have to pay him a visit and try to force him to show you the relevant dox and such.
As for the claim of Aikido fitting use-of-force policies, that's not an out-there claim, given the H2H training many such departments offer their members.

I'm not making some outrageous claim. I'm a prison guard in California. As far as proof, I evoke a Sean Connery line from The Untouchables, "Who would claim to be that, who was not?" Prison guards, or as some demand to be called, correctional officers, here in California, work for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. We are not 24hr a day LEOs, so I wouldn't use that tag anyway. I don't even know how to get one, or what use it would be.
Our arrest and control training, when I went through the academy, in 97, was created by Robert Koga. Koga based his method on his Aikido experience. Since I already had started training in Aikido, I just stuck with it, and use it mainly for control situations as in handcuffing resisting inmates nowadays. I started my career in psych units, and my Aikido experience paid off. It saved many injuries to staff and inmates alike, I'm sure. I won't argue that there may a better way, or quicker way to learn, or more kick ass system. There was no BJJ in my area till about two years ago. Had BJJ been here when I started Aikido, I probably would have been training in that. I am starting BJJ soon, but I still will train in Aikido, cause I like it.

Meanwhile--didn't you know?--absolutely everything I post is a lie. All of it, without exception. It's not like anyone do a thing about is except point fingers and squeak "fib!"
