1. Information

Guidelines, Training, Facts, and Myths

This live, facilitator-led, informational, risk management webinar on impact munitions is incredibly timely and informative, especially given the increasing frequency of civil disturbances across the United States. With protests escalating in intensity and potential danger, having a thorough understanding of impact munitions and their proper usage is crucial for public safety agencies, personnel, and the communities they serve.

The webinar covers a comprehensive range of topics, including guidelines, considerations, training, facts, and myths surrounding impact munitions. Given recent incidents like the May 2024, $1.5 million settlement by the Los Angeles Police Department for an alleged projectile injury to a protester, it is clear there are significant legal, financial, and career risks associated with their use. Understanding manufacturer specifications, kinetic energy, and injury risk management tactics and techniques are essential for mitigating these risks and ensuring the safety of both officers and civilians.

Upcoming events like the Republican and Democratic National Conventions and potential high- profile incidents (think Republican and Democratic National Conventions, post-presidential election results, and high-profile and controversial officer-associated deaths) require being well-prepared and informed, which is key to avoiding becoming the next target of civil lawsuits or criminal prosecutions. This webinar provides valuable insights and strategies for effectively
managing these risks in challenging situations.
