Using force-on-force drills to improve officer performance

While FOF training is not new, I continually look for new ways to use the technology to increase performance in lethal force encounters

Many trainers use force-on-force (FOF) training in scenario-based training. This type of training is necessary for the decision-making process of lethal force situations.

I use FOF for bolstering the development of technical skills within a tactical environment. These drills are easy to do in terms of time, but give a very good boost to officer performance as well as build confidence. I also use technical skills training with FOF in conjunction with qualification training, as a way to increase the effectiveness of the qualification.
