Stand Your Ground (Lee Weems)

February 29 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


In this class, guest instructor Lee Weems of First Person Safety discusses the dynamics of deadly force incidents, relying on his decades of experience as a law enforcement officer and defensive firearms trainer.

“Stand your ground” isn’t a magic phrase that transforms a use of force into a lawful use of force. This class explores the dynamics of deadly force encounters to include the reasonable man doctrine, the lawful use of force, interacting with responding officers, and more.

Lee Weems combines two decades of law enforcement experience along with his education from places such as the Force Science Institute, the Law of Self Defense Instructor Program, the Massad Ayoob Group Deadly Force Instructor certification course, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers Use of Force Instructor Training Program, and many others to create the content for this presentation.

Lee Weems has been a peace officer since January of 1999 and has served as a patrol officer, field training officer, detective, supervisor, and Chief Deputy.  He has been sworn at the local, state, and federal levels, and he is an adjunct instructor on the collegiate level.  He served two terms on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (GALEFI) and is certified by GALEFI as a Master Firearms Instructor.  He is certified by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) as a general topics and firearms instructor and is a graduate of the FBI’s Law Enforcement Instructor and Police Firearms Instructor training programs.

A more complete biography is available on the First Person Safety webpage.
