Interval-Level Metrics for Evaluating Deadly Force Judgment and Decision Making

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This research developed interval level metrics for evaluating the relative difficulty of deadly force situations and police officer performance in those situations. Metrics were developed using concept mapping software, and a Thurstone Scaling process involving 20 expert judges and 150 raters. This process produced two interval-level scales; a difficulty scale (D-scale) and a performance scale (P-scale). The D-scale measures the relative difficulty of deadly force encounters, while the P-scale evaluates police officer the performance in these deadly encounters. Taken together, these scales constitute a Deadly Force Scenario Performance Metric (DFSPM). This instrumentÂ’s validity, reliability and utility were tested using both officer-involved shooting reports and experiments involving high-fidelity training simulators (FTS). DFSPM provides a much more precise tool than was previously available for evaluating the impact of training regimes, policies, and practices on police performance in deadly force confrontations.
