Force Concepts - The Definitive Guide For Separating Self-Defense From Criminal Action

Violent physical attacks, shootings, and homicides are a few examples of the acts of violence that demand the professional investigator possess a particular investigative skill set. Imagine being one of the few professional investigators who possess those abilities.

Force Concepts will help you learn what to look for and how to evaluate the evidence these life-changing events may leave behind. You will learn real-world considerations that help you see directly into the heart of the force encounter. You will also learn to recognize the impact fear has on human performance and how to investigate that fear.

One of the primary goals of Force Concepts is to provide you with insights and investigative strategies for separating self-defense from criminal action. You will learn practical investigative principles that you can apply to investigations involving the use of force by police and for self-defense.

Force Concepts will help you, the professional investigator, take your investigative skills to the next level. When combined with the Force Investigations training program, professional investigators will be well prepared to pursue their designation as a Board Certified Force Investigator™.
