Setting the Standard

with science-based training for law enforcement and public safety

Law enforcement and public safety officers of all ranks should have access to research-based and unbiased facts about the way use-of-force encounters unfold as well as techniques to employ in attempting to avoid the use of force. This scientific approach also benefits individuals and groups tasked with investigating or reviewing such incidents, including internal affairs units, review boards, and municipal politicians.

Force Science fulfills this need for psychological and physiological analysis of the demanding and often-controversial situations in which force is used, up to and including officer-involved shootings. Through a full slate listed below, Force Science puts its extensive research and experts’ contributions to practical use. These courses explain the scientific background behind high-pressure and rapidly unfolding encounters.
