How we work

This is how we do our job
The team at POMA have had many years of experience training
students, not only across the UK and the Netherlands but also in Africa,
the Middle East, Eastern Europe and across North America. We have
been involved in the development of equipment standards and role
specific Risk Assessments, so understand that Public Order Public
Safety training is not a one size fits all package.


We have provided training in a great variety of different
locations, many of which were not ideal! We understand that the choice of venue may have many competing factors, not the least cost.
However, in a perfect world, what would we want;
A classroom or similar so officers can sit to listen and make notes. The days of standing on a line and speaking to no-one should be long behind us. The classroom sessions allow officers to understand the “why” when
we are teaching the tactics and skills.

An outside training area, ideally this would be a venue which has a variety of road and building configurations, this could be an academy
venue, a military training location or any manner of other sites. A X intersection and a T intersection are both requirements to deliver the
training, whilst this can be marked out on a car park using traffic cones, this tends to take away from some of the aspects of the training where
we ask the officers to identify points of danger and limits the ability to give realistic scenario training.


Over recent years, instances of people entering public, abandoned or not (Universities), derelict buildings to demonstrate, use as a base or hold unlicensed music events have become an issue around the world. Part of the training
will cover how to enter and remove such people, this will be linked to
information and intelligence and a thorough risk assessment. As such a
suitable building will be required.

Petrol Bomb/ Molotov training. With the correct training and equipment
dealing with such items becomes safer. To carry out this training a concrete pad is ideal as tarmac and similar can be damaged.

We provide Stadium Security Training

“We specialize in providing stadium security training, crucial for the upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup hosted in America, ensuring a safe and secure environment for all attendees.”


We are happy to see the days of wearing what is often referred to as the “Turtle suit” of hard plastic over foam padding can be behind us. Looking at equipment like: RAMPART USA Defilade ppe.

One of the main reasons you need to be careful going out in the hard Tac ppe  old style “Turtle Suit” is that it might provoke aggression where a softer approach might de-escalate the situation.  Not only can it be seen by the public as aggressive, it is also more uncomfortable for the officers,
restricts their movement and affects how long they can be deployed. This can adversely impact on the use of weapons systems. It can also
significantly change their mindset negatively to how they should react because they are wearing the old type ppe is hot and very uncomfortable. 

The welfare of staff and being less controversial in the eyes of the public and
media aid us in performing this daunting task.

The same can be said of much of the other equipment, boots,
with the new manufacturing techniques available. Boots don’t have to be
big and heavy same as overalls, there are lightweight materials now available
which will give great protection without the officers becoming overheated
in a short time period. 

We can work with you to identify what would be the best option for you
and your staff.

Stadium safety training.

Stadiums present unique challenges when dealing with both public safety and public disorder due to
their design and capacity. With the upcoming World Championship soccer and growing challenges
before during and after games POMA is offering specific training to deal with this trend.

The dynamics and behavior of a large group of people in a tiered and confined setting can quickly
alter due to a varying set of circumstances, therefore it is essential that early intervention can be
quickly implemented when circumstances dictate.
This includes directly outside of the stadium at the point of entry, inside the stadium in the concourses
and walkways and also in the spectator areas. This includes both seated and non-seated events.

The training provided includes.

  • Event management team training for both event commanders and ground level supervisors.
  • Spectator liaison.
  • Spectator safety.
  • Crowd dynamics and recognizing the shift for when intervention is appropriate.
  • Crowd management tactics.
  • Evacuation drills.
  • Dealing with disorder.
  • Ejection tactics.
  • Arrest team tactics.
  • Officer safety at sporting events


The above training elements can be delivered as an entire package or as individual elements.
All training is individually tailored to the location to achieve the appropriate knowledge base for the students.
