    Correct Answer
    C. OC and CS
    Explanation
    The correct answer is OC and CS. OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) and CS (Orthochlorobenzalmalononitrile) are the two most common types of agents used in law enforcement ASR (Aerosol Subject Restraint) sprays. OC, also known as pepper spray, is derived from chili peppers and causes severe irritation and temporary blindness. CS is a tear gas that irritates the respiratory system, causing coughing and difficulty breathing. These agents are widely used by law enforcement agencies for self-defense and crowd control purposes.

    What is the difference between OC and CS agents?

    • A.

      CS burns hotter then OC.

    • B.

      OC is a inflammatory and CS is an irritant.

    • C.

    • D.

      CS is not an agent, it stands for controlled substances.

    Correct Answer
    B. OC is a inflammatory and CS is an irritant.
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) is classified as an inflammatory agent, meaning it causes inflammation and swelling when it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. On the other hand, CS (Chlorobenzylidene malononitrile) is classified as an irritant, causing irritation and discomfort without necessarily causing inflammation. Therefore, the key difference between OC and CS agents is that OC is inflammatory and CS is an irritant.

    What is the preferred area of the body to deploy the OC ASR spray?

    • A.

      Eyes, nose, throat, lungs.

    • B.

      Eyes, nose, throat, ears.

    • C.

      Eyes, nose, throat, hands, head.

    • D.

      Spray them anywhere....it will work.

    Correct Answer
    A. Eyes, nose, throat, lungs.
    Explanation
    The preferred area of the body to deploy the OC ASR spray is eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. This is because OC ASR spray, commonly known as pepper spray, is designed to incapacitate an attacker by causing temporary blindness, difficulty breathing, and intense pain in these sensitive areas. Spraying it in other areas such as the ears, hands, or head may not be as effective in subduing the attacker.

    • A.

      Temporary blindness, breathing issues, vomiting, and buring sensation of the skin.

    • B.

      Temporary blindness, breathing issues, speech problems.

    • D.

      Blindness, perminant breathing issues and buring sensation of the skin that never goes away.

    Correct Answer
    C. Temporary blindness, breathing issues and buring sensation of the skin.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "temporary blindness, breathing issues, and burning sensation of the skin." When subjects are sprayed with OC (Oleoresin Capsicum), they may experience temporary blindness due to the irritant effects of the spray on the eyes. Additionally, OC can cause breathing issues as it irritates the respiratory system, leading to coughing, choking, or difficulty breathing. The spray also causes a burning sensation on the skin, which is a common side effect.

    What can be used to nutralize the effects of OC ASR spray?

    • A.

      Water, fresh air, time.

    • B.

      Water, fresh air, clean towels.

    • C.

      Only sudecon wipes.

    • D.

      Nothing.

    Correct Answer
    A. Water, fresh air, time.
    Explanation
    Water, fresh air, and time can be used to neutralize the effects of OC ASR spray. Water helps to wash away the spray from the affected area, fresh air helps to ventilate and reduce the concentration of the spray in the air, and time allows for the body to naturally recover from the effects of the spray. Using clean towels may help to remove the spray from the skin, but it is not mentioned as a necessary step in neutralizing the effects. Sudecon wipes may provide some relief, but they are not the only solution.

    Do I still need to carry OC ASR spray if I have a TASER?

    • A.

      Yes. OC ASR spray can be used against multiple subjects and be deployed numerous times, if necessary.

    • B.

      No, I have a TASER and that's all I need.

    • C.

      Yes. OC ASR spray can be used against multiple subjects and be deployed numerous times at anyone not follwoing orders.

    • D.

      Yes. If I feel like it. No. If I don't feel like it.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes. OC ASR spray can be used against multiple subjects and be deployed numerous times, if necessary.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Yes. OC ASR spray can be used against multiple subjects and be deployed numerous times, if necessary. This is because while a TASER can incapacitate a single target, OC ASR spray can be used against multiple subjects and can be deployed multiple times if needed. It provides an additional non-lethal option for self-defense in situations where multiple individuals need to be controlled or subdued.
