Lethal and Nonlethal Uses of Force

Hear about the critical issues, practical techniques, and solutions to managing the complications surrounding use of force.

Agencies and their officers are constantly exposed to risk - not only personal risk, but risk from civil litigation and the loss of public confidence when officers act inappropriately and excessively. Significantly reduce the agency and personal liability associated with high-risk confrontations with resistant subjects, while enhancing the public's perception of professionalism associated with your department. This ondemand webinar, led by one of the nation's most listened to and read police practices experts, will clarify use of force guidelines, provide simple and memorable considerations for force deployment for all force options and will assist the audience with building a proactive risk mitigation program model that can be immediately implemented by agencies at a very low cost. Dr. Ron Martinelli provides the audience a very unique perspective as a former police officer who has been involved in countless high-risk force encounters; as a 30 year use of force instructor and as a federal and state courts qualified police practices expert who investigates and testifies on major force incidents.
