Quick Overview

Cooperation, Compliance, Control.



In a free and peaceful society where so many have been taught that all violence is wrong, citizens are often confused and dismayed when officers use force, even when the force is perfectly lawful and justified.



This book allows you to ‘take’ a basic USE OF FORCE class just as if you were a rookie at the police academy. Below are some highlights of what is included in ‘your’ basic use of force class:



SECTION 1. TRAINING. I explain policy and laws that officers are taught. We examine use of force, how to define a threat, and the difference between excessive force and unnecessary force.



SECTION 2. CHECKS AND BALANCES. This section explains how an officer’s decisions are examined if suspected of being bad decisions.



SECTION 3. EXPERIENCE. We explore how officers see the world that they live in. Somewhere in the fog between training and experience, the officer has to make a decision. Sometimes decisions will be made in a fraction of a second and on partial information. Sometimes a decision will change the lives of everyone involved—forever.



SECTION 4. ABOUT YOU. Review what you should have learned. Why does community action fail? What is it that can really be done? Know how to behave when faced by an officer. Until this section, I have tried to put you in the headspace of an officer, giving you an overview of his training and a taste of his experiences. Now I will try to let you feel like a suspect. That’s a lot of mind bending for one book. Get plenty of sleep and drink lots of water.



Any civilian, law enforcement officer or martial artist interested in self-defense, or anyone wanting to understand the duties and responsibilities of civilians and police officers needs to read this book.
