Lodge 9 has put together a tremendous opportunity for those who represent law enforcement officers.  This is being done for the benefit of all FOP members.

On October 10-12 in Columbus, Ohio at the Columbus PD Academy, the Force Science Institute  will be presenting a two course on the Use of Force and

will then move into a one day course on Body Cameras.   This training is

free for Lodge 9 members.

The Force Science Institute is widely recognized as the international leader on training on the application of unbiased scientific principles and processes designed to determine the true nature of suspect provocation and officer response (action-reaction dynamics). The goal of the program is to encourage law enforcement professionals to apply the important concepts revealed in this research when investigating, reconstructing, recalling or otherwise analyzing a use of force. The integration of this information has been proven to enhance the accuracy and thoroughness of decisions made relative to behavior and performance during the incident.

The brand new Body Camera course is taught by a team of leading experts in human factors, camera & recording technology, media relations and law, hand-selected by Dr. Bill Lewinski and the Force ScienceR Institute. The program will include in-depth exploration of timely topics, including:

. The strengths and limitations of body cameras and other recording devices that need to be understood and considered during investigations.

. Human memory vs. electronic recording: Why the two may differ dramatically and the implications of that reality during force investigations.

. Understanding and explaining why what a camera sees may not be what an officer sees during a high-stress, rapidly unfolding force encounter.

. The impact of lighting, camera angle, and frame rate on recordings of fast-moving events.

. Recommendations and timing considerations related to whether officers should view video of their encounters before submitting to formal interviews.

. Technology and techniques that can help agencies "flesh out"

two-dimensional video footage in an effort to present the most realistic picture of an officer's sensory experience during a high-stress, rapidly unfolding force encounter.

. Don't just push play: Tips for appropriately presenting and positioning footage of a filmed force encounter in a manner that helps maximize understanding of the realities of human performance.

. Professional media relations guidance on best practices for handling seemingly controversial but potentially misunderstood footage.

. Real-world advice on how best to mitigate chaos in communities following a high-profile force encounter.

. Body cameras, video/audio recording and the law.
