In May 2015, the United States Department of Justice released the comprehensive findings of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. That report summarized six primary findings related to nearly every facet of criminal justice, including training and education. This course satisfies multiple areas covered in the task force report and consists of two primary modules, designed to expand participant knowledge in the areas of implicit bias, cultural diversity, mental illness, emotional intelligence, effective de-escalation strategies and community policing.

Warrior Science Group
Hours: 1
On Combat – A Primer is a one hour training course taken from the book On Combat and produced with the author Lt. Col. Dave Grossman. This course examines the psychological and physiological effects of fight related stress on the body and mind of those engaged in potentially lethal conflict. Although no officer wishes to engage in the use of lethal force and the vast majority of officers will not have to, it is important to train officers and leaders about the effects to expect and how to recognize natural reactions and respond accordingly. This course does just that.

On Killing (A Primer)
Lt. Col. Dave Grossman

Warrior Science Group
Hours: 1
“On Killing – A Primer” takes a psychological look at a very real phenomena within the ranks of law enforcement from lessons learned in military conflict concerning the psychology of killing. Although every police officer will not face the reality of taking a life in the line of duty, we owe it to our officers to prepare them for the potential in terms of psychological processes involving remorse, rationalization, isolation, and social tolls – and important insights to apply in managing the aftermath of officer involved shootings. On Killing – A Primer is a course taken away from the award winning Author Lt. Col. Dave Grossman’s bestselling book – On Killing and presented by him in our studio.
