Inside CCW Safe Podcast- Episode 13: The Citizen’s Use of Force Continuum, Part III
Listen to the “Inside CCW Safe” Podcast
We have decided to move the podcast to Wednesdays, and will begin that schedule with this podcast on the citizen’s use of force continuum. In this episode, Mike and Stan talk about the third part of the three part series.
They talk about the final two steps of the continuum, Action and Deadly Force.
The action is broken down into three components, communication, de-escalation, and lastly physical force. The two talk about each component, and then talk about the last step, being deadly force.
Again, each level should fall back on avoidance if at all possible. The two also talk about the articulation that will be needed if you do have to use force, and some things to think about individually.
