One aspect of making the right decision quickly is how many different decisions you have to make before taking action.  Specifically when dealing with violent circumstances there becomes a mix of Hicks Law and the OODA Loop.  In LE having fewer decisions to make is the best possible case scenario for not only making the right decision, but taking action quickly.  If we have a lot of possible decisions to make we may take too long to consider them and the window of action may have already passed us by, putting us behind the loop.  This is even more important where policy is concerned.  If too many options are mandated to be considered, there are possible serious consequences at the street level.
