The curriculum for this two-day program is based on Force Science’s own research that uses precise time and-motion measurements to document environmental, physiological and psychological dynamics of high-threat events. The internal research is supported by the work of experts and researchers in Motor Learning and Performance, as well as Perception, Cognition and Decision training.

The training course prepares students to recognize and apply the principles they learn in investigations
and training at their own law enforcement agencies. Lessons are delivered via discussions, video
presentations, case studies and lectures.

Real-world instances are cited to facilitate discussion and demonstrate the ways physiological and
technological factors affect the answers to critical use-of-force questions, including the following:

  • How attention, decision-making and response dynamics influence reaction time.
  • How adrenaline, attention and trigger speed affect shooting performance.
