Course Objective

Street Survival II teaches officers how and why both police officers and citizens die unnecessarily during police/citizen encounters. We do this by examining and discussing, for purposes of training officers now and in the future, lifestyle changes on and off the job. The course addresses two specific subject matters:

Course Content

“The Fatal Four” – We look at officer safety from the perspective of surviving emotionally and physically, not just while on duty, but over an entire career. The 24/7 reality of the job if you will.

We specifically examine the four most common causes of fatalities for officers during a career:
1. Felonious Assaults
2. Vehicle/Traffic Related Incidents
3. Physical Conditioning (heart attacks)
4. Emotional Health (suicide) The Impact of Stress –

The primary cause of officer deaths and officers making poor tactical decisions that, on occasion, result in avoidable citizen injuries and sometimes unnecessary deaths, is their inability to deal with stressors. Specifically, Acute and Chronic stress. Acute Stress is the type of stress that is sudden and intense. It causes heart rates to soar and biochemical changes to occur. Both of which impact an officer’s cognitive ability in the moment, sometimes leading to an inability to process what is happening resulting in poor decision making. Law enforcement fails to teach and train officers in this area though this is where they are the most vulnerable to make mistakes of a deadly nature by either underreacting or overreacting. We examine over 150 video clips of officers involved in stress/force events over the two-day Seminar. Chronic/Cumulative Stress is the type of stress that adds up over a course of time. The multiple acute stress experiences coupled with the tragedies, schedules, frustrations, and other harrowing experiences officers deal with regularly, builds up over time. This, consequently, severely impacts their mental, emotional and physical conditions. Poor health, depression, anti-social behavior is often the result. All leads to an inordinate number of deaths within the profession from heart attacks and suicide.
