Course Overview
While it's critically important that administrators and command personnel understand how to reduce bad outcomes, it is perhaps most important that the rank and file officers on the front lines have the same understanding. Policing is a profession where human error, mistakes, and well-intentioned bad decisions can have disastrous, far-reaching consequences. We expect out officers to make split-second decisions with limited information under the most demanding and stressful of circumstances. Facing task-saturation, cognitive overload, and a mountain of psychophysiological stressors, today's officers need to identify and mitigate hazards before they align and trigger bad outcomes.

This cutting-edge, one day course shows your officers a powerfully effective way to identify risks, anticipate failures, and significantly reduce bad outcomes. Using proven methods employed successfully by other high-value industries, participants will learn how to identify and mitigate risks and hazards that continue to ruin careers, lives, and agency reputations.
