Investigated the effects of task complexity on a single movement response time of the upper and lower limbs in police officers.

The training of police officers should utilize specific and situational tasks to improve movement response time by improving the redundancy in decision-making processes during work-specific tasks of different complexity.

It helps the inhibition of rooted behaviors, focuses attention in a strategic way, and organizes our thoughts in terms of complexity. This notion may not be a novelty for police academies and specialized police units. However, regular police officers, who often do not have organized any kind of strength and condition or self-defense training by the agency on a regular basis (i.e., 2–3 times per week), may be at a disadvantage if found in physical conflict situations.

Future studies should investigate the effectiveness of focused training interventions in occupational settings on officers’ ability to respond quickly and effectively to complex job-specific tasks.
