Dynamics of Officer/Citizen Encounters

April 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

PRIVATE

Police interactions with citizens are in the national spotlight. What previously wouldn’t have made the local paper now makes national news. Officers need tools to effectively engage citizens in a professional manner without compromising their own safety in the process. That’s why Dynamics of Officer/ Citizen Encounters was created. Through guided discussions, video analysis and case studies, participants will examine:

  • Current Research about the Threats to Officer Safety
  • Going Beyond the Buzzwords: A New Look at De-escalation
  • Know Your Authority: Keeping Contacts Lawful
  • Adaptive Decision Making: Tools for Increased Safety
  • What Pushes Your Buttons? Improving Emotional Intelligence
  • Unconditional Respect: An Officer Safety Tool
