Taught by a team of leading experts in human factors, camera & recording technology, media relations and law, hand-selected by Dr. Bill Lewinski and the Force Science® Institute. The program will include in-depth exploration of timely topics, including:


• The strengths and limitations of body cameras and other recording devices that need to be understood and considered during investigations.


• Human memory vs. electronic recording: Why the two may differ dramatically and the implications of that reality during force investigations.


• Understanding and explaining why what a camera sees may not be what an officer sees during a high-stress, rapidly unfolding force encounter.


• The impact of lighting, camera angle, and frame rate on recordings of fast-moving events.


• Recommendations and timing considerations related to whether officers should view video of their encounters before submitting to formal interviews.


• Technology and techniques that can help agencies “flesh out” two-dimensional video footage in an effort to present the most realistic picture of an officer’s sensory experience during a high-stress, rapidly unfolding force encounter.


• Don’t just push play: Tips for appropriately presenting and positioning footage of a filmed force encounter in a manner that helps maximize understanding of the realities of human performance.


• Professional media relations guidance on best practices for handling seemingly controversial but potentially misunderstood footage.


• Real-world advice on how best to mitigate chaos in communities following a high-profile force encounter.


• Body cameras, video/audio recording and the law.


• and much more!
