Great class! Would recommend it to all law enforcement professionals.
Force Encounters for Citizens Review Boards is an excellent course in which science clashes with perception, helping explain through science why things may not always be what they first appear to be.
This course was eye opening! It broke down the science behind the use of force. The methods demonstrated can be used as another investigative tool to give us a better understanding into the use of force. Outstanding course and top notch instruction. I give it 2 thumbs up!
A must for any OIS investigator.
Force Encounters Analysis is a class that should be required for all use of force investigators. Topics that were especially relevant to me were fatigue, memory, and the fact that most departments are far behind the knowledge curve. I plan on addressing this training with admin.
I am a field level officer, and this class touches on a lot of life or death subjects that I may encounter in my career. The course reinforces the need to recognize complacency and mental errors in law enforcement work. Well-versed instructor (Craig E. Geis). All topics were relevant for me.
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.
All attorneys who deal with OIS from criminal or civil perspective should be required to attend this course! It will help tremendously w/ OIS reviews but also with homicide reviews for self-defense issues. Rating: 5 of 5
I will never judge an incident solely on video content and the "that looks bad" theory again.
Craig Geis' knowledge of the subject matter is impressive. His delivery of the information is that of a 'regular guy' as opposed to a strictly scientific delivery, thus making the subject matter easier to follow and more interesting. Rating: 5 of 5 across the board.
