*How attention, decision-making and response dynamics influence reaction time.
*How adrenaline, attention and trigger speed affect shooting performance.
*How video recordings’ capabilities and limitations may affect viewer perception of events.
*How popular firearm tactics can increase the risk of armed encounters.
*How critical incidents can affect memory.
*How investigators can improve the accuracy of recall in interview subjects.
*How the speed of assault influences de-escalation strategies and tactics.
*How the speed of assault, prone threats, attention and exhaustion can affect traffic stop and investigative approaches.
*How the aforementioned factors can affect the memory and performance of all participants in a critical incident.
