1st Person Experience
Be The Officer
Every Contact is unique
The Difference between life and death is measured in
Mission: To provide police shoot – don’t shoot simulation opportunities for 1.) clergy; 2.) government officials; 3.) judges and state’s attorneys; 4.) media; 5.) Others as approved.
Purpose: To travel around the State of Illinois and provide opportunities to educate and familiarize key community leaders in the very difficult job of law enforcement, in the most serious few seconds of a police officer’s life…the shoot / don’t shoot situation.
Further education includes scientific information on physiology of the human response to stress, before, during and after an event.
Illinois Fraternal Order of Police State Lodge will conduct this program by:
- Partnering and or owning police use of force simulation machine(s). We will set up field experiences for key community leaders who are often asked to comment on, or get involved with the “aftermath” of a police shooting.
- Conducting these programs and providing qualified speakers to support these sessions the Fraternal Order of Police is utilizing technology to become “proactive” rather than “reactive” in these important events which will continue to happen so long as there are people willing to cross the line of civility and threaten to cause or cause felony crime and life threating situations to law abiding citizens.
- The FOP is uniquely positioned to provide a non-agency-based experience, without any local history and investment in any local community relations. This isseeding for success, for police officers across the State who will become involved in shooting situations in the future.
Management: The State FOP will utilize the Disaster Response Trailer to haul equipment and set up at locations around the State. The FOP will provide qualified operators and instructors for these events. The command staff of the Disaster Response Unit (DRU) will coordinate these events with the State President.
Scheduling is coordinated through requests from local lodges and or agencies who feel it would be beneficial for their area. No cost is associated, however a donation of $200 is most welcome to offset transportation costs.
If you or your organization are interested in the experience, we are interested in you.
