***MEDIA INVITE*** Officer Training Aimed at Improving Outcomes in High Stress Encounters

Posted on Friday March 18, 2016

Peel - Officers with Peel Regional Police can encounter many different types of high-stress critical incidents on a daily basis and making split-second decisions can be difficult, if not mentally prepared.

On Monday, March 21, 2016, Peel Regional Police will announce a partnership with Doctor Judith ANDERSEN, from the University of Toronto, Professor in the Department of Psychology and Academy of Medicine.  Doctor Andersen will speak to a new training tool that will be utilized when training our police recruits, front line officers, and tactical officers.
