Weapon Focus in Elite and Rookie Police Officers

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



Abstract:

Elite and rookie police officers employ two different types of weapon focus when involved in a lethal gun fight. An officer’s performance can be impaired or enhanced by how they control their gaze in the midst of a deadly encounter. Elite officers anticipate an emerging threat sooner, shoot to stop it faster and more accurately, and make fewer errors in judgement because of a concentrated fixations on the assailant’s weapon in contrast to rookies who attempt and most often fail to focus on their own weapon. These results potentially impact firearms training, officer eye witness testimony and litigation in officer involved shootings.
