Get the word out that this class SHOULD BE REQUIRED for the majority of police positions, especially investigations, supervisors, IA, admin. I will use all of the areas of instruction in my job as an investigator. Very valuable training.
Five out of Five! I found all of the topic to be relevant to me. I teach firearms and DTs, so the information is helpful in further understanding use of force incidents. There is a lot of information to retain in three days. This class is great and should be longer.
Great class. (Force Encounters) Extremely relevant training for today's law enforcement environment. Asst. Chief Schnabl was extremely professional and knowledgeable and delivered the material in an effective and articulate manner. One of the better facilitators I've seen in quite some time.
On Force Encounters Analysis training: Well done! I did not realize how much I didn't know. I won't be so quick to judge in the future.
Force Encounters Analysis is one of the best courses that I have ever taken in regards to contemporary issues surrounding use of force. Five Stars.
Excellent training for OIS investigators. I highly recommend.
The topics covered will give personnel who defend officers a wider understanding of how the constant stressors that are daily events, affect officers' behavior and cause physiological changes. This field of study presented by a qualified expert will help jurors decipher and understand the officer's decisions and actions in their defense.
Deputy Chief Schnabl is a true believer in the course content (Human Factors). His passion for the material is reflected in his teaching style. The class covered a much broader range of topics than I had anticipated. I believe I will now be able to address cultural issues within our agency and discuss sleep issues and how they relate to TCs. Very well-rounded instructor, difficult topics. Score: 5 out of 5.
Great course! I left with a much better understanding of Force Encounters, and human performance limitations. Good presentation of why we do what we do under stress/fear.
Craig Geis and David Blake are extremely knowledgeable in course materials. Good visuals, both kept class engaged and provided real life stories relative to the course. Both were also available and engaging during breaks for one-on-one questions and conversation.
