Is your law enforcement agency ready to respond when a critical incident occurs? Can your officers and first-line supervisors work and communicate effectively with other departments and organizations responding to the incident?
Join Dr. Damon Ing, retired Law Enforcement Officer and Lead Coordinator of the Tarrant County College Law Enforcement Academy, to learn how you can strengthen your agency’s critical incident response management to improve outcomes. During the presentation, Dr. Ing will discuss how comprehensive training within your agency and with other departments influences critical incident response, the importance of critical thinking skills, and utilizing PERF’s Critical Decision-Making Model (CDM).
From PERF’s CDM, Dr. Ing will cover three crucial points to follow including:
- Preparation before a critical incident
- How to handle a critical incident
- What to do following a critical incident
- Ensure equipment and tools are documented, tested, and working properly with a native mobile app
Additionally, Dr. Ing will discuss creating a checklist for critical incident response management, documentation and After Action Reports (AARs), and establishing officer wellness programs such as providing peer support and additional resources.
