You will be then introduced to the equipment - ballistic helmets with visors, 4 foot shields, batons and a host of other pieces of equipment designed to keep you safe and in control. You and your group will then move through a series of training stands, where you will get to grips with the tactics and formations you will need to employ.

Once lunch has finished you will be broken down into two large groups the rioters and the riot squad. Then, once you have been fully briefed, all hell breaks loose! Stand firm as you come under a barrage of debris and advance forward with smoke swirling around your waist. Brace yourselves as simulated petrol bombs are thrown in your direction and simulated baton rounds fire into the crowd before Snatch Squads sprint out to drag back ringleaders. Youll experience noise, fire, smoke, fear and excitement - the key ingredients of a pitched battle! Once a truce is declared you will swap roles - riot cop becomes rioter and vice versa. You will need a reasonable standard of robustness as you will have to move around with a sense of urgency. You will need to lift and carry and have the stamina to stand firm in a base line with a shield. Be prepared for a few knocks and the odd bruise.
