The term “de-escalation training for law enforcement” is quite popular in the public narrative as is the call for police officers to undergo “more” training.

I really enjoyed my discussion with host Terrence Herrick during this podcast as we discussed law enforcement training, decision-making, policing hiring practices and more.
