Force Encounters Analysis contains information on some of the most misunderstood realities of law enforcement.
There are always three parts to an incident/OIS: The officer, the perp, and the truth/science.
Know the science of Force Encounters BEFORE you are on the stand.
A law should be passed that requires agencies to incorporate science into written policies. Knowledge of these scientific concepts should be required for supervisory promotion boards.
I have been a sworn police officer for over 25 years, and have attended numerous courses, including two SWAT academies and Range Master courses. Without a doubt, this is one of the best courses I've ever attended. This should be required for all instructors, investigators, and supervisory personnel.
Force Encounters Analysis is a course every member of a LE command staff should take before making presumptions about officer's actions during OIS incidents.
Not only does the science covered in Force Encounters Analysis go a long way to explaining officer actions to administrators and the public, but it also is essential in creating effective, safe training regimens.
Force Encounters Analysis training helped me to understand the scientific study of human biology and physiology as it relates to internal processes that a human being in law enforcement goes through in a critical stress incident. The class also honed in on the language necessary to communicate and educate others about arousal levels, stress conditions in the body, and performance limiting factors.
Every U.S. citizen should take this course. It would give the police naysayers and anti-police special interest groups a look at why we do what we do, and just how much stress we encounter everyday.
