Optimizing Situational Awareness: Reducing Risk, 8 Hours

STC: 0920-082141

Probation and corrections officers can reduce risk by considering both general and positive psychological research, stress research, studies on work performance, and sleep deprivation, and situational awareness concepts during day-to-day or high-risk incidents. Often neglected are the common human factors that increase error and risk, promote unsafe encounters, and contribute to physical injuries. The result may be undue mental stress, reducing work productivity, and increasing personal problems (that, in turn reduce situational awareness). Officer Wellness for Situational Awareness examines contemporary case studies and uses videos, group breakout exercises, and lecture.
