Mindset Force Management LLC
Mindset Force Management LLC was created to provide law enforcement with specialized use of force consulting and training to identify and manage risk. Our comprehensive experience in this field allows us to review and recommend policy changes or create policies where there is none. Our "Root Cause Analysis" process allows us to go beyond what happened and determine why. This provides a more accurate risk analysis so mitigation addresses causes instead of symptoms. Our assessment process allows us to design training and other recommendations specific to an agency's needs.
Many agencies assess their use of force risk lower than what it actually is because of no or a flawed assessment process. Increases in lawsuits, judgements, and officers being charged and convicted criminally are increasing at an alarming rate. Just because your agency hasn't had such an incident doesn't mean your risk is low. Excessive force and other use of force mistakes erodes confidence from the community in the agency. "The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon public approval of police existence, actions, behavior and the ability of the police to secure and maintain public respect." (Sir Robert Peels Principles of Law Enforcement. 1829).
