"De-escalation"—it's one of the hottest buzzwords in policing today. But, what does it mean for police agencies in today's age of liability?
During this on-demand webinar, Chief Bill Harvey addresses the key questions surrounding de-escalation training and policies, including:
- How to link COVID-19 safety protocols with your de-escalation policy
- Why de-escalation training needs to inextricably tied to department policy
- How often and in what context training should occur
- How to "sell" liability training to senior staff and municipal stakeholders
Chief Harvey also addresses how and why de-escalation training protects both officers and the public as well as helps to avoid ruinous liability judgements against police agencies and the municipalities they serve.
