Podcast: Human Factors and Officer-Involved Shootings


How do the dynamics of psychophysiology and human factors affect officers during high-stress incidents such as officer-involved shootings? Why can’t we remember things accurately? Why do officers see things and testify differently than what might be recorded on their dashcams or bodycams? Does the mind play tricks on us under stress? DrRon Martinelli and forensic psychologist and imminent behaviorist Dr. Alexis Artwohl delve into the mysteries of the human mind in this fascinating episode of “A Thread of Evidence.”


Police, police leaders, police use of force investigators and police teachers will get a lot from this show.
