Dynamics of Officer/Citizen Encounters

November 21, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

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:

  • Effective Communication with People in Crisis
  • Current Research about the Threats to Officer Safety
  • Awareness: Going Beyond “Keep Your Head on a Swivel”
  • Addressing the Culture of Speed in Law Enforcement
  • Characteristics of Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA)
  • Unconditional Respect as an Officer Safety Tool

What is Think CLEAR?

The Think CLEAR Approach to Law Enforcement Professionalism provides a simple approach to officer/citizen contacts that can increase officer safety while also increasing the quality of contacts they have with citizens. By addressing the areas that most often lead to officers “going viral”, we can enhance officers’ physical and career survival; a true win/win for the modern day law enforcement officer.
