About the event
Deadly force decision making refers to the critical process of determining when the use of lethal force is justified or necessary to protect oneself or others from an imminent threat of death or serious bodily harm. In this firearms training workshop we focuse on this topic, participants will learn about the legal, ethical, and practical considerations involved in making such decisions.
Here are some key topics that might be covered in a workshop on deadly force decision making:
- Legal framework: Participants will learn about the laws and regulations governing the use of deadly force in their jurisdiction. This includes understanding the concept of self-defense and the circumstances under which lethal force is considered justifiable.
- Threat assessment: The workshop will cover techniques for assessing and evaluating potential threats. This involves understanding factors such as proximity, weapon possession, and the intent of the aggressor.
- Non-escalation and alternatives: Participants would be taught strategies for not escalating potentially dangerous situations and using non-lethal force options whenever possible. This includes understanding the importance of communication, conflict resolution, and physical techniques to subdue a threat without resorting to lethal force.
- Shoot/don't shoot scenarios: These scenarios will be used to help participants develop decision-making skills in high-stress situations. These scenarios would require participants to assess the threat and determine whether the use of deadly force is warranted.
- Aftermath and legal considerations: Participants would learn about the potential legal and emotional consequences that may follow the use of deadly force. Understanding the importance of post-incident actions, such as contacting authorities, seeking legal representation, and cooperating with investigations, would be emphasized.
