This fast-paced and visually dynamic program will be conducted by Lt. Jim Glennon and Lt. Kelly DeVoll. They will cover a wide variety of survival and risk management topics in order to impress upon attendees that personal safety and career survival is ultimately the responsibility of the individual officer.

The foundation of the program is understanding and training realistically for stress events. From driving too fast and using unwarranted amounts of force – to ineffective communication and the inability to decompress off duty – the seminar emphasizes the need to understand and manage stress as the key to professional and personal success.

Instruction will address current events as well as classic training points through video footage of contemporary police encounters. Veteran trainers will utilize the latest technology and scientific data regarding human performance, stress management, and use of force. The seminar is open to all levels of sworn law enforcement.
