Being in an Officer-involved shooting or critical incident produces uncertainties, stress and fears of what will happen next. Undue anxiety can develop within both personal and professional relationships and effect job performance and home life. This sixteen-hour class is for the officer who wants to better understand the dynamics of a deadly force shooting and to prepare themselves for The Day.   Being Prepared For The Day offers an in-depth analysis of what occurs during and after an officer-involved shooting along with information to better prepare you before the incident can happen.  This class utilizes personal interviews with more than fifty officers who have used deadly force or were partner officers, their spouses and significant others, criminal investigators, prosecutors, police administrators, internal investigators, defense attorneys, medical professionals, law enforcement trainers and media persons.Instructor Bio:
