Understanding Human Behavior and Stress

9/8/2017
How do high-stress situations affect subjects and law enforcement?
 
In October, OPOTA Richfield will host two courses designed to help law enforcement officers understand the dynamics behind human behavior in high-stress situations. 
 
The courses are a program of the Force Science Institute, which studies human behavior in use-of-force situations. The Force Science Basics course will be held over two days and showcase research related to the dynamics of human behavior during high-stress, rapidly unfolding encounters. The course could be helpful to those in law enforcement who investigate, train, and/or make split-second decisions during high-stress events.
 
Oct. 4 – 5, 2017 ǀ 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
