Use of Force for Field Supervisors

How to manage a use of force scene and conduct a use of force investigation

The way law enforcement officers use force is under scrutiny like never before. But for years, we’ve heard complaints from law enforcement supervisors that they weren’t receiving the up-to-date and practical training they need to mitigate risk for their officers and their agency. That’s why we created the Use of Force for Field Supervisors course.

This course contains everything you need to manage the types of use of force incidents you respond to most often. Instead of vague concepts or an outdated instructor, you’ll get the specific tools you need and learn from a current practitioner in the field.

This course provides current and aspiring supervisors with the specific skills they can use to reduce liability and the risk of injury by managing the most common use of force incidents both before, during and after an incident, including:

 

  • The best ways supervisors can “set the tone” ahead of time during briefing trainings
  • How to manage the scene of a use of force incident
  • How to manage use of force incidents on your shift and conduct in-field use of force investigations
  • Use of force laws that every supervisor needs to know
This course is focused on arming current and aspiring supervisors with practical tools they can begin using immediately. Through the use of case analysis and scenarios, students will leave this course confident in conducting use of force reviews.
