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:
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?
- 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?
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!
QUANTIFY / IDENTIFY / VALIDATE / IMPROVE
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.
Maintaining the most complex training operations just became simple!
