Personal weapons may include hands, forearms, elbows, knees, feet, head, and even teeth. Batons constitute intermediate weapons. Firearms or other improvised weapons utilized in a manner to cause death or serious physical harm, are the last force options available and constitute deadly weapons. Regardless of the type of weapons (personal, intermediate, or deadly) employed, and regardless of the particular tactics or techniques utilized, NOTHING works 100% of the time. As a personal protection officer, the responsibility for contingency planning to safeguard the protectee also rests upon the officer.
