Sgt. Perry Bartels will present analyzing a questionable force incident with logic and reason will often result in inaccurate and unrealistic conclusions regarding an officers judgment and actions. This uniquely designed class applies science to force analysis to provide the most accurate assessment of an officers performance in a force situation. We will study the physiological changes that occur under critical, life-threatening stress and examine how vision, memory, perception, cognition and performance are altered. You will learn the science of why action is faster than reaction and examine how the timing of many other common officer/suspect movements can affect the dynamics of a confrontation. We will evaluate force related training to ensure that training techniques are not going against the grain of human programming. Real life incidents are also closely examined to demonstrate and explain discrepancies between statements, physical evidence and videos, and also between training and actual performance. If a force action is questionable this information must be considered if the facts are to be determined. Only then can laws and policies be applied fairly. This class is a must for trainers who design force training, detectives, who investigate officer related force incidents, agency administrators who decide on the appropriateness of officers force decisions and attorney who are involve with criminal/civil matters relating to police use of force. Our goals are to maximize training effectiveness and to ensure the most accurate and factual investigation in order to protect agencies and officers from liability.

  • Brain Basics

  • Sensory Processing
