Unit 1Presentation Materials: Mental Models


Dr. Renee J Mitchell, the author of Twenty-one Mental Models That Can Change Policing, reviews the main mental models that can lead to unique solutions and better problem-solving. This method can be used for any policing issue an agency is facing: from recruiting and retention to violence, or reallocating services to non-sworn responses.  Rather than a prepackaged, “one-size-fits-all” solution, this session will provide a critical thinking method that can help any agency or any person better prepare, plan, and execute solutions for the problems that plague policing.

If you or your agency is facing any serious problem, this overview can help you think through your issues in a new and creative way.
