De-escalation & Intervention: Policies, Protocols & Practices

April 18, 2024

8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Southern Arkansas University

An officer’s ability to successfully preempt escalation and when necessary, emotionally de-escalate an intensifying situation is absolutely critical. This is a complex task requiring specialized training and a well-developed ability to understand human nature, identify and interpret the source of intense emotions and implement strategies that effectively allow officers to demonstrate unwavering professionalism, even in the face of extreme provocation. This course will help officers effectively “lower the temperature” of potentially incendiary encounters and better assist in avoiding legitimately avoidable uses of force. During this 8-hour course, we use current events and a wide array of the latest videos to bring reality into the course, students will quickly grasp the necessary concepts of interaction that will allow them to immediately utilize the skills taught in the class during their next street encounters.
