Threat management training to eliminate unintended discharges
an officer shoots man with a screwdriver,
an officer falls to the ground their partner thinks they are under attack,
a man reaches for his wallet and is shot.
Many of these cases are in low light and involve furtive movement, fortunately, much of the time the use of a flashlight or less-lethal options can reduce these perceived threats.
A lack of training heightens stress, and the inability of officers to properly engage verbally with the subject can produce unintended discharges.
A MotoShot Target Systems can be equipped with a Threat Management Trainer and a variety of weapons as well as the capacity to drop the weapon when the instructor feels the officer has properly engaged the subject verbally. MotoShot can be operated in all directions and at different speeds allowing the officer time to react. As the officer repeats the scenario, the tempo can gradually be increased to produce the desired training effect.
