Different levels of light can have a dramatic impact on how officers interact at their worksite. A lack of light can make it much more difficult to interpret body language and non-verbal communication. Being prepared with a flashlight and handling it well can make all the different in an interaction, especially if it’s intense or emotional.
Training Description: Participants will learn to react safety, quickly and reflexively in low light or limited visibility situations. This will prepare them to address single or multiple people at their worksites by proactively using cover and concealment, clearing, flashlights and area lighting to their advantage, and for the safety of everyone involved. They will understand flashlight types, modifications and accessories.
