De-escalation is often billed as the answer to reducing police use of force. Some people have even come to expect police officers to use de-escalation in nearly every encounter. The reality, of course, is much more complicated.
This webinar will focus on the role de-escalation plays in police encounters with persons in crisis. Join Force Science Institute and Lexipol to learn how to minimize risk to yourself and others when confronting people who are mentally ill or otherwise in an emotional crisis.
