Marines and Sailors with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit conduct a non-lethal tactics course aboard USS Iwo Jima, July 2-4, 2012, to hone their skills in handling situations that would require the use of alternative methods of controlling crowds and individuals where lethal means are not required or authorized. The course included classroom instruction followed by practical application for riot control techniques, proper handling of unruly individuals, and concluded with a qualification course for oleoresin capsicum spray, commonly called O.C. or pepper spray. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a theater reserve force for U.S. Central Command. The group is providing support for maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet area of responsibility. Produced by Lance Cpl. Tucker Wolf.
