P1 First Person: Use of force models in LE training
Editor's Note: PoliceOne “First Person" essays are the place where P1 Members candidly share their own unique view of the world. This is a platform from which our members can share their own personal insights on issues confronting cops today, as well as opinions, observations, and advice on living life behind the thin blue line. This week’s feature, from P1 Member Matt Simmonds, is a response to John Bostain’s article Training without force continuums: Learn to love the law. A former Pennsylvania State Constable and Deputy Sheriff, Matt is presently Lead Instructor for Use of Force/Defensive Tactics at the Penn State Justice and Safety Institute, Deputy Sheriff Training Academy in State College, Pa. The views expressed in this article are the author's and not necessarily those of Penn State Justice and Safety Institute or Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.
