Practical De-Escalation
and Tactical Conduct©

Specific, Realistic and Modern

De-escalation should be more than a training course, it should be a culture. But creating that culture starts with great training. Today’s officers need to know the specific tactics they can use to avoid a violent confrontation. They need a rock-solid understanding of new use of force laws and liability cases so they can make well informed decisions. They deserve a modern, highly-specialized training where the focus is on learning, not checking a box.

There is no more high-liability occupation than being a patrol officer in the year 2021. But in order to make those officers successful, it takes a team of highly trained dispatchers, supervisors and training staff. To be on the same page, your team needs to all be trained the same way. That is why we recommend your team attends the Practical De-Escalation and Tactical Conduct© course.

FAQ

What make your de-escalation training so different than other courses?

Instead of vague concepts or unrealistic recommendations, we give you specific and highly-practical information that you can begin implementing immediately. We also only use expert instructors. This isn’t one of those “check the box” or “Death by Power Point” classes.

Who should attend this course?
Law enforcement officers and supervisors assigned to patrol duties, dispatchers and police trainers.
Does this course comply with training mandates mentioned in California laws?

California law enforcement agencies are searching for training to satisfy requirements in AB 392, SB 230, Government Code 7286 and more. They are also looking for training on California POST’s manual titled De-Escalation Strategies and Techniques For Law Enforcement. This course was specifically designed to provide officers training on all of those factors.

Is this training only for California law enforcement officers?
No. The reason that we focus on California issues is because California is a highly litigious state where new laws and police practices are often formed. If you are a law enforcement officer in another state, there is a very good chance that similar changes are coming your way. Get ahead of the curve and attend this training to learn the best practices you can implement today.
