Command and Control — De-escalation Training

The Command and Control segment of this training will teach active Leadership Skills in order to contain and minimize the negative impact of any incident or situation. It will also provide an overview of, and accountability for, managing incidents.

That goes hand-in-hand with the De-Escalation and Tactical Communication segment which is designed to enhance officers’ skills and capabilities  to defuse and possibly even resolve issues that  might otherwise  lead to a Use of Force.  Attendees will develop or enhance their interpersonal communication skills such as: Listening; the Art of Persuasion; Dealing with Difficult People; and, recognizing the impact of inappropriate communication.

The training is recommended for all ranks of law enforcement, civilians who deal with the public, and private security.
