Surviving the First Three Seconds

Date: July 18, 2022
Time: 0800-1700
Location: Leviton Auditorium
Instructor: Kirk Hensley

Course Description:

This class is designed to take the reactionary gap off of the officer and to place it back onto the suspect we are working with. This is done through a five-prong system.

  • Body Language Indicators to armed suspects
  • Clothing Indicators to armed suspects
  • Body Language and Verbal Pre-Assaultive Indictors
  • Street Level Interview Skills
  • Street Level Lie Detection Skills

The hope is that when you apply all five aspects of surviving the first three seconds, the officer will be able to stay safer through better communication skills while being able to recognize and access threats quicker.
