Handling Dynamic Encounters...Go Get Him, Or Set Him Up To Get Him...With An Adaptable Response

Some have described and compared police encounters as either static or, dynamic. It’s my view that there is no such thing as a static police encounter. All encounters whether they progressively evolve over a longer period of time or erupt rapidly in a short period of time, without warning, circumstances surrounding law enforcement encounters are all dynamic. Time is moving forward, circumstances changing and the ability of responders to adapt to the ongoing circumstances is always critical.

“In complex settings in which we have to take the context into account, we can’t codify all the work in a set of procedures. No matter how comprehensive the procedures, people probably will run into something unexpected and will have to use their judgment.” ~Gary Klein
