|Video: The value of using checklists|
Every time an airplane takes to the skies, its pilot has meticulously — one hopes! — executed a pre-flight checklist. This is SOP because when something is so routine that it becomes rote, important details can be forgotten. In this video tactical tip, PoliceOne Contributor SGM Kyle Lamb (ret.) discusses the importance of using checklists to reinforce your adherence to agency policies and procedures.
