New Force Science Findings into the Human Dynamics of Deadly Force and
Through ground-breaking research into the human dynamics involved in complex, rapidly unfolding force encounters, the Force Science Institute, founded and directed by Dr. Bill Lewinski, has had a profound impact on law enforcement. During his POLICE-TREXPO presentation, Dr. Lewinski discussed the Institute's revolutionary findings relative to human performance under extreme stress, action/reaction timing, visual and auditory anomalies that surface during life-threatening scenarios, memory and recall challenges and other issues that can have a tremendous impact on the thoroughness and accuracy of investigations into officer-involved shootings and other force encounters.

Dr. Bill Lewinski is the co-founder and executive director of The Force Science Institute, which was launched in June 2004 and is headquartered in Mankato, Minnesota. He also runs the Force Science Research Center, based at the University of Minnesota, Mankato and directed by the Institute. The mission of the Institute and the Research Center is to scientifically determine and fully understand the true dynamics of force encounters – what actually happens between officers and offenders in fluid, rapidly unfolding, life-or-death confrontations.
