Force Science is proud to announce the latest version of its successful Advanced Force Science Specialist course. This updated and expanded program includes additional subject matter experts and will be led by Dr. John Azar-Dickens. Dr. Azar-Dickens is a clinical psychologist, an active police officer, and frequent presenter for the Force Science Institute.
The Advanced Specialist course remains the most comprehensive course for developing the critical thinking, scientific knowledge, and research foundations needed for use of force expertise. The newest version of this 18-week course has been retooled to eliminate the costly travel associated with on-site meetings. The orientation session and four “Clinical Days,” previously conducted at the Force Science Chicago office, will now be conducted online for the convenience of students.
With the new curriculum changes, students are able to earn six undergraduate credits or three graduate level credits through Columbia Southern University, a well-respected online university familiar to law enforcement and criminal justice professionals.
Dr. Lewinski, executive director of the Force Science Institute and co-instructor for the advanced course said, “We’re pleased to add such a highly-accredited instructor to our program. Dr. John Azar-Dickens is uniquely positioned to identify the relationship between clinical research, use of force, and police practice. He brings a wealth of information and experience to the students of this course and will continue to advance the high-standard we set for our training.”
