Agencies with perception and civil litigation problems have one thing in common: a segment or more of the organization's risk mitigation triangle is broken or completely missing.   

Liability management in today’s digital world is more complicated than ever before. So, fight fire with fire! Force Liability Management Solution (LMS) will give you the information at your fingertips to defend the organization and its employees when your training, policy, equipment and practices are called into question.  Even better, that same information will help you identify trends and problems so you can improve operations and avoid wasting time (and taxpayer money) defending in the first place. That is priceless!!!

HERE IS THE QUESTION:

Image title

How can you VALIDATE that the training, equipment, and policy your agency deploys actually works? 

Do you have enough tangible data about your agency’s uses of force, pursuits and how the training your agency provides affects the outcomes of those operations? How detailed can you get to see the whole picture? How do you view the whole picture if you can’t really see it?


  For instance:

  • How many of last year’s uses of force occurred on grass, mud, snow, cement or carpet? 
  • How many during day light, night, using a flashlight or weapon mounted light? 
  • How many happened in a car, a home, a store or an industrial complex? 
  • What is the most common time frame that your officers are using force the most (month, day, time)? 
  • Who are you using force against the most? Male or female? Intoxicated or sober? White, black, Asian, Latino, other? Average age, size (height / weight)? 
  • What use of force techniques are you using the most? Empty hand strikes, baton, ECD, chemical agent or deadly force? 
  • What unit in your agency uses force more than any other unit? Who’s second and third? What officer in your agency uses force most frequently? Who’s second and third? 
  • What technique caused the most injuries to defendants? Or your officers? 
  • What’s the average speed, time duration, and distance traveled before a pursuit comes to an end? 
  • What’s the most successful technique to end a pursuit? How many end in a crash? A crash with injuries to the defendant(s), innocent citizens or your officers? How often is the driver intoxicated? 
  • How many total hours of use of force training (defensive tactics, lethal and nonlethal technologies) were conducted department wide? 
  • How about total hours of firearms specific training? How many hours for each of the following: pistol, patrol rifle and shot gun? How many rounds were fired per officer for each weapon platform? Exactly what was taught? When was it taught? By who was it taught? How many hours of total firearms training has Officer Smith had in his 15 year career? 
Can you view any of the above data at the stroke of a key and compare year over year, year to date, individual officer, unit and organizational statistics? 


If not, how can you see the whole picture? The devil is truly in the details. Generally, the details are not examined close enough to identify trends as simple as the tactics/equipment that really do work and what doesn’t work. Critical purchasing and training decisions are then based on individual incidents, personal opinion and assumption rather than hard statistical facts. 


Most of these facts are likely collected by your agency, but never used to their full advantage for multiple reasons. Records may be kept in separate locations by separate record keepers who do not interact. Uses of force and pursuits are looked upon individually for policy and procedure compliance, not from an organizational viewpoint to identify problems in the training that is provided, the equipment that is issued or the policies that are in place. Finally, the training records, use of force and pursuit report data that is captured is massive and constantly growing on a daily basis making it manpower intensive and organizationally difficult to capture and correlate the data into information that can be used to make improvements.


DOES YOUR AGENCY'S OPERATIONAL &
TRAINING LOOP LOOK LIKE THIS?

Imagine if there was a way to improve your organization’s existing internal record keeping using a faster, more intuitive process. A process that contained all of your employees training records and individual uses of force and pursuit history, inventory history, training discipline and commendation history, all in one centralized location? What if this same application could schedule organization-wide training, or class for just a handful of select personnel, assign the periods of instruction, the instructors, and build the entire training record with just a few mouse clicks?

What if you could monitor your agency in virtual real time for indications of a disproportionate amount of force being utilized by an individual or unit. Imagine a system that could help you flag safety and policy protocols that should be reconsidered to ensure maximum harm reduction for the community and liability management for your organization? Good news, you don’t need to imagine anymore, what you need is Force LMS. SEE THE BIG PICTURE... GET FORCE LMS!


Image titleCREATE & RECALL COMPLETE TRAINING RECORDS AND INVENTORY REPORTS WITH A FEW MOUSE CLICKS. Save time and valuable resources by automating redundant cumbersome processes. Force LMS allows you to create training, schedule it and report the outcome in minutes. Additionally, you can recall granular details about each training event and inventory allocation for individuals, unit or organization-wide, should training practices or inventory controls ever be called into question.


JUSTIFY TRAINING, EQUIPMENT PURCHASES, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES WITH EASE. Centralized analytic data gives you quantifiable and extremely detailed use of force and pursuit statistics so you can effectively analyze operations. With Force LMS you can accurately determine the frequency and outcome of events (arrest/injury/other), moreover you are able to look at the granular details of all high liability events, and the effectiveness of your training, tactics, equipment, policy and procedure during these events. View the data individually, by division, or organization-wide to justify what you are doing and to help guide needed changes in your operations.


INCREASE COMMUNITY SUPPORT. Improved organizational performance will increase citizen and officer safety. In conjunction with easy access to accurate real-time training and operational statistical data, police executives will have very detailed hard facts about their organization, which will include the good, the bad and the ugly. The willingness to identify shortcomings and make improvements will foster greater transparency which leads to increased community support. 


REDUCE LIABITY. Centralized analytics make it easy for executives to monitor, in virtual real-time, statistical data which allows them to identify problems in their highest liability operations (use of force and pursuits). This gives them, their supervisors and their training staff vital information to make needed changes or to help obliterate frivolous lawsuits. In addition, training related discipline and award tools assist in monitoring individual employee and unit performance.


SAVE MONEY – SAVE TIME – SAVE LIVES. The centralized analytics provided by Force LMS will stream line what were once antiquated, decentralized, redundant, manpower intensive reporting systems with a means that will bring you incredibly detailed data at the stoke of a key. This will save countless man hours. However, time is only one example of how Force LMS will save you money. Other savings will come as you use it to defend against lawsuits and as you use it to make improvements that will prevent future lawsuits. Eventually, the greatest value that Force LMS offers is the promise that it will help your organization improve its operations, ultimately SAVING LIVES.

QUANTIFY / IDENTIFY / VALIDATE / IMPROVE

One of the best features of Force LMS is that it is customizable. For instance, you can input your organizations logo, address, and contact information. In addition, setting up the various training categories is customizable. For example, a police department will have different training requirements from a fire department. A hospital will have different training requirements than a construction company. The Navy will have different training requirements than the Army. Each of these organizations have specific training needs for their operations, and this function is what makes Force LMS so attractive. 


A police department, for example, must provide use of force training. Under the training category, there are many subcategories such as defensive tactics, firearms, and less lethal technologies. Under firearms, the Training Administrator(s) can make additional subcategories for pistol, shotgun, patrol rifle training, and qualifications. This allows a department to track data such as the number of hours trained in each weapon system, rounds fired, courses of fire, and training lesson plans. This information is all captured and added to the individual Users training record, and the overall organizations training record, giving the organizations executives the fire power they need to fend off inquires that imply that your training is deficient.

This workforce training management software is going to revolutionize the way your organization documents its training operations. Whether you work for a 25 person municipal organization, or a 10,000 person corporation, Force LMS will immediately save time and improve the organization’s professional reputation by demonstrating an unmatched level of competence in the documentation of its training and risk management efforts. By using Force LMS, anyone who challenges your training operations will quickly realize your practical training operations, are likely as professional, and contemporary, as your training documentation efforts.

This software is ideal for government entities and private businesses alike allowing them to document the training of every full time employee, part time employee, volunteer, and even retirees.

Check out the features Force LMS puts at your fingertips:

  • All training related data is in a centralized location. All training documents are uniform in their presentation. Retrieve a professional looking individual or organizational training report in seconds.
  • Track individual and organizational training records, statistical data, year over year data, by the hour data, by training category, or by budget line item.
  • Assign sensitive items to employees with confidence and accountability. Force LMS has an inventory tool that makes this task easy.What about policy review? With Force LMS, we make it simple. Point, click, and send. When it’s reviewed by the employee(s), it’s automatically documented in the employee's policy review training record. What if an employee does not respond? This is impossible with Force LMS. If the employee does not respond within three days, notice is sent to the Training Administrator(s). The Training Administrator(s) can address the issue themselves, or contact that employee’s direct supervisor. In any case, this reminder will continue every three days, until the employee responds, or the Training Administrator(s) exempt that employee from having to review that particular policy. The same function is available for new training bulletins or special notices.
  • Training Administrators scheduling new in-service training will find this task much simpler using Force LMS. This point and click system will save Training Administrators countless hours in constructing training documentation and reports, while improving communication and coordination between themselves, the instructors, the students, and the organizations executives. Simply choose the training category, sub-category, date, time, location, uniform, instructor(s), lesson plans, required resources, students (employees/users), and the training record is 95% built in a matter of a few seconds. Hit send, and notification is sent to all parties. When the training is complete, the instructors report back to the Training Administrator(s) with attendance and any performance related issues (pass/fail/scores/injuries/remedial training requirements). The instructor(s) input is the final piece of data that is needed for a particular in-service training event to be entered into Force LMS. Once that data is entered, either by the instructor(s) or the Training Administrator, the training record is complete, and the data is built into the individual students (employees/Users) record, the instructor(s) record, and is integrated into the organizations training record.
  • Documenting training from outside vendors is an easy day using Force LMS. Training Administrators can either do it themselves, or they can make the Users responsible for this task. If they make the Users responsible, this saves an immense amount of time, as the User does all the data input, and then submits it to the Training Administrator for review and approval. This function is yet another feature that makes Force LMS the most flexible and functional training and risk management software available.
  • What about inputting the training that took place before Force LMS was purchased? This task is simple, and it builds your data base immediately so that your executives have the fire power they need to defend the individual employee, and the organization. The Force LMS scheduling tool ensures that you never forget the types of training that are often over looked by employers. Subjects such as sexual harassment, blood borne pathogens, or OSHA mandated training can no longer be forgotten, as Force LMS will remind your Training Administrators about these time sensitive training issues.
Force Liability Management Solutions is going to solve many training related problems, while saving time and vastly improving training record management, and recall for organizations of any size. Executives will have the ability to view training data and budgets in virtual real time, year over year, individually, and organizationally. This software, from the training oriented minds of CMI, is going to revolutionize risk management through the use of point & click training record builds, operational data collection to quantify training efforts, and accounting technologies.
