The charter of the group: Contextualizing and teaching the use of force to equip end-users with proportional responses to high risk threats.

Informing this work is a large catalogue of courses via I.C.E. Training Company, Shivworks, and Safer Faster Defense, organizations through which members of the group frequently develop themselves as students and instructors. These internationally recognized companies also provide curriculum vetting to the group.

The team serves western Wisconsin first, but covers a roughly one-day driving radius.
