Force

Watching the many videos on the Internet of police activity, I find several disturbing things in common.  Police fail to take control of the situation.  It is the job of the police to restore order when order has broken down.  Give firm, clear instructions. 

If the instructions are not followed, then give them a second time more forcefully.  If they are still not followed, then implement your plan to bring the subject into submission.  Use enough force to win the fight right away, in the least amount of time. 

Hitting the suspect one time, very hard, is much better than hitting them softly five times.  Too many officers don't have a plan of action.  They don't command, they ask, over and over again.  They use force, but not enough to solve the problem; that's what the SGT Says.
