A decision tree is a great way to determine a course of action and possible outcomes associated with an officer’s decision. Today everyone has a camera and decisions are reviewed, questioned, and judged by those who have no idea what happened. In Ch. 5 you learned about tactical decision-making and scenario-based training for new officers. Discretion is a major part of a police officer’s role and the decision he or she makes in a split second can create many different outcomes and consequences. Watch the Decision Tree video located in the University Library.
