From 2008 to 2017, more than half a million law enforcement officers were assaulted—most by people using personal weapons. While each incident is unique, this trend points toward the need for safer contact and interview techniques. The key to making such encounters safer: effective conflict communications. This webinar will focus on the importance of proper contact and cover tactics for both street encounters and traffic stops. Join Force Science Institute and Lexipol to learn about the threats officers face during contacts, critical human performance factors that impact these interactions and how these dynamics intersect with the law. You’ll learn: How human performance dynamics, such as attentional load and action vs. reaction, affect officer safety during street encounters and traffic stops Findings from Force Science traffic stop studies that reveal the importance of strategic officer positioning How safe tactics often present the best approach for operating within the limits of the law Click here to sign up for the webinar.
