I plan on providing my officers with the information I learned in this course.

In this 8 hour workshop the training will examine the most recent and up to date issues that specifically impact Command, Mid-level Managers and Supervisors concerning police use of force incidents. This overview concentrates on multiple issues ranging from daily officer citizen complaints to investigative issues involving deadly force  encounters. Instruction uses lecture and case review. This is essential training for anyone who reviews or oversees police use of force incidents, investigations or training.

We need to assess our use of force incidents with a complete and thorough 360 degree review to determine the facts, causes, techniques and outcome. Without properly and completely evaluating use of force improvement is impossible.     Lt. Kevin Dillon (Ret)
