KEY ARTICLES, POSTS AND WORKSHOP: TOPIC “Dangerous Body Language” | Law Enforcement & Security Consulting

What is the aim or purpose of this series? To improve our ability to shape and adapt to unfolding circumstances, so that we can survive on our own terms. So we are more safe, successful and effective on the street. This work is centered on winning conflict!

“To shape or influence the moral-mental-physical atmosphere that we are part of, live in and feed upon, so that we not only magnify our inner spirit and strength, but also influence potential adversaries and current adversaries as well as the uncommitted so that they are drawn toward our philosophy and are empathetic toward our success;Yet be able to Morally-mentally-physically isolate adversaries from their allies and outside support as well as isolate them from one another, in order to: magnify their internal friction, produce paralysis, bring about their collapse; and/or bring about change in their political/economic/social philosophy so they can no longer inhibit our vitality and growth.” COL John Boyd

Event description:

This seminar will focus on the teaching street officers the subtle signs and signals, the dangerous body language, gestures and expressions to look for, recognize, and respond to, allowing them to seize the initiative. “Obvious signs and signals of crime and danger can be clearly seen by the trained and observant law enforcement professional. Yet they too, often go unseen, or are seen too late.”

Learn how to apply the principles of Observation, Orientation, Decision and Action in a way that gives the officer the clear advantage on the street where critical decisions are made. Your duties are becoming more dangerous as the threats we face evolve. This requires skillfully making observations in an effort to detect conventional and unconventional threats. What is it you are looking for? What are the things that alert you to wrong-doing or danger? What is abnormal or suspicious? Are the signs and signals always obvious or are they much more subtle, as in the form of nonverbal behavior?

This seminar will develop more advanced and ambitious officer safety tactics to help all officers win on the street!
