Force Dynamics of a Force Encounter

Class Instructor
WILLIAM J. LEWINSKI, Ph.D. – Force Science Institute

The presentation will focus on historical, just completed and in-process research on assailant dynamics and speed when assaulting an officer in force encounters including ambushes. The latest research involves the use of accelerometers and gyroscopes for very precise measurements. Classical officer approaches and response patterns will be examined for effectiveness in coping with assaults. We will take a brief look at why training, to be effective against the variety of situations officers face, needs to be based on a problem orientated foundation and include modern principles of learning that incorporates an interdisciplinary, integrated, and clinical foundation.
