The Pennsylvania State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police Presents:

  Two Day Force Science Basic  Program from the Force Science Institute.

Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square,

300 W. Station Square Dr., Pittsburgh, PA. 15219  

Monday and Tuesday, May 21st – 22nd, 2018

Time: 8:30am – 4:30pm

Course Description

This program, created and instructed exclusively by the Force Science Institute, is designed to clearly present, in a practical and understandable fashion, the results of the most cutting edge research into the dynamics of human behavior during life- threatening encounters.

The goal of the program is to encourage law enforcement professionals to apply the important concepts revealed in this research when investigating, reconstructing, recalling, or otherwise analyzing a use of force.

The Force Science Institute uses sophisticated time-and-motion measurements to document—often for the first time—critical hidden truths about the physical and mental dynamics of life-threatening events, particularly officer-involved shootings. Its startling findings profoundly impact officer training and safety, and the public’s naive perceptions. In fact, the Institute’s findings have been directly credited with saving officer lives on the street and with preventing some officers from going to prison after being wrongly accused of criminally using deadly force.

Force Science researchers have destroyed myths and discovered cold facts about some of the most controversial force issues, including:

  • How threatening suspects end up shot in the back by well-trained officers making valid, lawful shooting decisions.

  • Why officers continue to fire “extra” rounds in high-adrenalin confrontations after the threat has ended.
  • What popular tactics used by some officers trying to reduce lag time actually put the officers at greater risk.
  • How perceptual alterations and stress-induced memory gaps can impact an officer’s ability to accurately recall incident details.
  • How quickly suspects can launch an attack and why officers and trainers must take Force Science speed studies into account when preparing for a confrontation.
  • How investigators can best “mine” officers’ memories and avoid interviewing mistakes that can put the officer, the investigator and the entire department in jeopardy.
  • What the most recent Force Science studies have to say about traffic stop assault response and officer movement, threats posed by prone subjects, the impact of exhaustion on officer memory and performance and more.
