Police Use of Force:

A Dynamic Journey to Becoming a More Confident Officer

★ IADLEST Nationally Certified Training
Taught by: Don McCrea
🕒 Length of Training: 16 Hours

It’s never been more critical for officers and agencies to fully understand how to make proper use of force decisions. But if you expect your officers to be at their best when it matters most, they need to be trained by an expert who teaches from experience — not just theory.

Learn directly from use of force expert and veteran law enforcement officer Don McCrea as he breaks down some of the most important but misunderstood concepts and applications of use of force.

Don’s track record on the streets and in the courtroom is second-to-none. He’s combined 35+ years of experience and knowledge with current case laws to help thousands of other officers make and lawfully defend their use of force decisions.

What officers will take away from the training:

  • Demystify the Constitutional concepts governing force
  • Get the most up-to-date information using the most recent case laws
  • Gain more confidence and know how to make reasonable use of force decisions
  • Understand how to defend and articulate your use of force decisions
  • Learn how to write use of force incident reports that will stand up to legal scrutiny
  • Drastically improve your ability to investigate and evaluate use of force incidents
