How much time does it take for a police officer to respond to a threat?
A retired Chicago police detective demonstrates the OODA Loop, a four-stage decision making cycle plan designed used in a variety of professions–including law enforcement.
The stages of the OODA process take an officer 2.5- to 3-seconds to complete and include:
- Observe – See a potential threat
- Orient – Prepare to meet that threat
- Decide – Decide to engage the threat
- Act – Engage the threat
