R4 Adaptive Decision-Making for Law Enforcement- Salmon

Course Number: R4111C

Course Description:

Who should attend:
Sworn officers who want to improve their emotion intelligence and decision-making skills.

Description:
The law enforcement environment can often be described as one that is a non-linear, open-loop system, that happens at light-speed. One where time can be either friend or foe. Operating in this environment creates stress which affects decision-making. Within this time-compressed environment officers often feel they need to act because they are there, rather than allowing the circumstances of a call determine the urgency to act.

The question is how to provide a strategy for officer’s to effectively control the stress response and to make lawful and ethical decisions? The answer is two-fold: with 1) Emotional Intelligence and 2) the use of thinking and mental models.

Emotional Intelligence helps in reducing the stress caused by non-linear, uncertain events. Being able to regulate emotions allows officers to make better decisions. The use of thinking and mental models (OODA, Cynefin, Adaptive Decision-making model) assists the officer in their sensemaking and decision-making capabilities. Students are taught to make decisions based on urgency or the need to take an action and within the Constitutional framework of the 4th Amendment. These components are a great compliment to any de-escalation strategy.

You will leave this class as a stronger officer by learning:

✒ How Emotional Intelligence creates resilient, compassionate and respectful police officers. ✒ The Adaptive Decision-making Model.
✒ How mental models help or hinder the decision-making process.
✒ The Cynefin Sensemaking Model.
✒ How a spectrum strategy assists in managing time.
✒ Understand the role bias plays in decision-making.
