Ten years ago, the American College of Emergency Physicians officially recognized excited delirium syndrome (ExDS). In the decade since, significant progress has been made in documenting the prevalence of ExDS, developing protocols for officer and EMS safety, and identifying proven practices that increase the subject’s chances of survival.

In this webinar, a panel of ExDS researchers and instructors provide key takeaways for law enforcement officers and agencies. They will discuss the latest research involving ExDS and share proven training and response protocols developed by the Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths that may help prevent potentially deadly use of force incidents when dealing with ExDS subjects.

You’ll Learn:

  • Findings from a recent comprehensive study examining over 9,000 use of force incidents 
  • A simple assessment tool to help officers identify the possibility of ExDS
  • Law enforcement officer actions that can help avoid injuries and more effectively subdue ExDS subjects involved in a violent episode
