Great instruction! It put science at a level I could understand and remember, and it gave me a better understanding of force encounters.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and motivated. His personal experience added meaning to the lecture.
The most well-researched and factual-based police training I've been to in my entire career.
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.
The best and most relevant training I've received in my career. Dave Blake and Craig Geis are a great team! Thank You.
Force Encounters Analysis is essential training for Managers, Supervisors, and Trainers. I will use this knowledge to audit law enforcement programs, training, awareness, and scheduling.
Every topic was especially relevant for me. I never knew or even came close to beginning to understand the science in OIS. I will disseminate this info to my department and recommend that each officer get educated in Force Encounters Analysis.
I have been a sworn police officer for over 25 years, and have attended numerous courses, including two SWAT academies and Range Master courses. Without a doubt, this is one of the best courses I've ever attended. This should be required for all instructors, investigators, and supervisory personnel.
The Force Encounters Analysis class was helpful for understanding the response of officers in use of force incidents. It answers the question of, "What & why did that officer do that?"
I think this class should be marketed to Internal Affairs Personnel. It can help them formulate questions for interviews.
