Why De-Escalation Training Is a Win-Win for the Public, Officers and Departments

Police agency use-of-force policies have become part of the national conversation. This has led to communities and agencies taking a hard look at how policing is handled locally, specifically how to implement de-escalation policies to avoid unnecessary use of force.

In fact, studies show that by de-escalating a confrontation for just three minutes, the potential for an officer-involved-shooting goes down to almost zero.

In this informative whitepaper you will learn:

  • How to make de-escalation training an ongoing part of officers’ work lives.
  • How de-escalation and use-of-force policies are inextricably intertwined and have the same goal.
  • How to “sell” de-escalation training to command-level staff.
  • Why de-escalation training is a win-win for officers, their departments, and the community at large.

In an era when agency budgets are threatened and officers increasingly are called into volatile situations, de-escalation training is an effective way to preserve budgets by limiting the potential for officer-involved incidents and ruinous liability judgments.
