“The class (Force Encounters) was great. It gave great insight on how the human body works during stressful situations and how to alter training to attempt to neutralize the physiological effects. Like a lot of training, it is power point heavy. But the instructor did a good job of breaking it up with videos and group activities. The more Probation transforms to a Law Enforcement culture, the more training like this is needed.
One of the highlights for me is that they had two attorneys who specialize in defending police officers after force encounters. (They were attending students). It was beneficial to hear their advice about what is needed to protect law enforcement during criminal/civil charges after an incident.”
