Polis Solutions Featured in Scientific American

Brian Lande and Jonathan Wender’s research and training company, Polis Solutions, has been featured in Scientific American article, Stress Training for Cop’s Brains. Jonathan Wender writes in the piece,

“We need evidence-based, human performance training that starts in the academy and continues across every career phase, so when you’re tired, scared or stressed, you still do the right thing.”

Jonathan also argues that police are judged for there errors along moral, emotional, and political dimensions but not the same types of evaluations we make of other professions, such as medicine or aviation. When a doctor makes an error the explanation is not immediately or automatically considered to be moral or political, but likely an human performance error of judgement or perception.
