Mindset Force Management LLC

Mindset Force Management, LLC was created to provide law enforcement with use-of-force consulting, training, and risk management. Risk cannot be removed from the use of force; it can only be minimized and managed. Our skills and experience in this field allows us to comprehensively assess use-of-force incidents, determine overall risk, and provide specific risk management solutions. Our "Root Cause Analysis" process allows us to go beyond what happened and determine why an officer used force reasonably or not.

Training, policies, and supervision are the primary factors that determine and manage use-of-force risk. When these are designed well and effectively implemented, use-of-force risk is minimized. Our assessment process goes beyond a 'check box" of best practices and whether the three factors are legal. We assess practicality and if training, policy, and supervision are complimentary or conflict in the objective of use-of-force risk management. We assess if the three factors clearly define, train, and manage an agency's professional standard for use-of-force? Our process is systematic and provides an accurate use-of-force risk assessment, whether it is for a given incident or for an entire 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).
