De-Escalation: Strategies for Best Possible Outcomes, Train-the-Trainer

De-escalation – the word that is perhaps thrown around the most when discussing law enforcement-related topics. Yet, it also is perhaps the most misunderstood and misappropriated word when addressing these topics as well. What is de-escalation? How should it be trained? Is it the “cure all” that many make it out to be?

This course addresses these questions and many more. Based on empirical research, the course will define de-escalation, address its limitations, provide strategies that give the best possible chance for a desirable outcome, and tactics to increase officer safety.

Those who attend this course will be provided with all the material necessary to deliver the training to those within their agency. This includes PowerPoints, workbooks, and original sources of information.
