Force Science Training
Force Science Institute, Ltd.
Instructor: Dr. John Azar-Dickens
July 12, 2013 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The program is a clear presentation of the most cutting edge research into the dynamics of human behavior during life-threatening encounters. We will explore the scientific principles and processes of suspect provocation and officer response. Apply the concepts revealed in research when investigating, reconstructing, recalling or otherwise analyzing use of force. The Force Science Institute uses sophisticated time-motion measurements to document critical hidden truths about the physical and mental dynamics of life-threatening events, particularly office involved shootings.
- Introduction: The problem with misunderstood police shootings
- Enhance investigations through understanding survival challenges: Action and reaction offender behaviors, reactionary shortcuts, interaction/comparison
- Understanding the limits of human perception under stress: Vision, Attention, “the London Study,” training and investigations
- Controversial case study: Synchronous shots, execution shots, extra shots, unintentional discharges, “unarmed” victims
- Facilitation of emotional recovery, working with an officer following a shooting.
