The United States is facing a critical time in history with the lack of trust between police and civilians.
The use of excessive and deadly force by law enforcement has become a focal point for communities, local, state, and federal government, and the media.
Our study is aimed at helping to find better ways for police officers to respond in the most stressful situations. Through specific training, we will help improve situational assessment and the use of appropriate verbal and nonverbal communication.
By supporting this study, you can:
Help Kinesiology students engage in valuable service learning and research
Help train law enforcement officers in proper response techniques
Help train law enforcement officers in effective communication skills
Promote law enforcement’s willingness to use new technology and innovative training techniques
If successful, this study could be the first to demonstrate that minimal additional training could save many civilians lives.
