This class (Force Encounters Analysis) should be taught to every officer before going out to the field. Every topic, including response time, reaction time and how your brain operates were relevant for me.
Craig,Thanks again for sharing your knowledge, it was the cornerstone of our first training fly-in. I received numerous compliments on your course and the fact the fly-in was more than just an excuse to get a meal. We were hoping for 30-40 people when we started planning the event and ended up with 104 and 25 aircraft from over 20 different agencies.In this age of oversight and scrutiny, we are proud of the fact that our fly-in will now be associated with quality training and content. I’ve attached a couple pictures.Best Regards,
The Force Encounters Analysis course from CTI was amazing! It really gets to the root of the issues facing modern law enforcement agencies in America. I feel much more prepared to defend myself and my officers/colleagues with rational information. With all of the tech being developed for law enforcement liability mitigation and monitoring, it is refreshing to have hard scientific facts to argue reality vs. perception and why officers are shot.
Thanks for the great education and inspiring class. I know you hear it all the time, but in my 20 years of NPS employment, that was the highest quality training I've received.
Best class I ever attended. It made behavior we've all seen for years make sense.
Force Encounters Analysis is excellent training, regardless of your position in law enforcement. I gave it five stars across the board.
All of the topics were relevant to what we do. I liked the arousal and attention section - especially discussing the chemical reaction in suspects who start out compliant, and an officer may use force that surprises the suspect and causes a reaction. I thought the class was a great mixture of text, videos and class participation.
I work in homicide. I investigate OIS cases. The class was specific to my assignment. Awesome explanation on how an officer's shots may land in a suspect's back.
Great course and good use of PowerPoint, videos, and verbal instruction. This will assist me when I'm interviewing victims and reviewing police officer's reports. This information applies to assault victims and how they recall critical events, and the sometimes lack of detail, due to how they process the associated stress.
Would you want an umpire that knows nothing about the game of baseball to judge the game? Then why would you want a command staff/IA team that knows nothing about human performance science to judge a shotting or UOF? I have this course five stars out of five. Modules on fatigue, reaction times and stress & performance were of utmost interest to me.
