At my old MMA school there is a LEO that does BJJ and teaches it to other officers.

Two of my old pals from high school are cops now, and they have never trained in anything except what they learned at the academy. They are both tough bastards though, they grew up on the streets.
I hear alot of cops train in Aikido and pressure point crap as well." If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

Most cops dont give a ****. They have a badge, a gun, and authoritIIII!
I have cop friends who think a month of stick work makes them really good with a baton. Idiots.

The officers I work with....
Generall study judo or a jujitsu dirivitive. There are also speical systems like KOGA PPCT and latly Krav. It is a general idea that the average dumb ass isnt an issue it is people like bullies and sociopaths.

The Carlsbad Police train selected BJJ techniques from an officer who is a purple belt from my school. Punching is not much use... there are clubs, guns and tasers and mace for striking ranges.
Cuffing somebody is all about taking someone down, taking their back and applying a hammerlock.

KC Police Academy teaches BJJ/MMA and we have a few state troopers that train with us too.

The Cops I have met or in family either trained in nothing (most) TKD 2, Muay Thai 2. Otherwise almost all either did weightlifting or bodybuilding, and a couple who were of SWAT team variety were avid runners as well."Its not important to be strong, its just important not to be weak."

I had 6 cops in my BJJ class when I trained. All blue belts or higher, too, so it's not a fad for them.

Cops here just don't care, we used to help teach a grappling class at the police station- closed due to lack of officer interest.
Seriously, they sucked.
Cops have guns and sticks and cuffs and dogs and friends with more guns and sticks and- wel you ge tthe idea.
They should do MA, but a good deal of American cops are naked without their utility belts.
