Free Webinar: Make Entry or Walk Away? Decision Making for Non-Criminal Barricades

Wednesday, June 17 • 10:00am – Noon PT

Featuring Savage Training Group Founder Scott Savage
and SFPD’s Sgt. Donald Anderson

Sponsored by The Police Credit Union and Hosted by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office

When a subject is armed, suicidal and barricaded in his home, law enforcement officers face the dilemma of having to decide if they should make entry or walk away. Making entry means potentially forcing a violent confrontation whereas leaving seems steeped in potential liability.

In this live webinar, we’ll examine the options and look at how progressive police agencies have chosen to respond. Our guest, Sgt. Donald Anderson of the San Francisco Police Department’s Hostage/Crisis Negotiation Team will lead a debrief of a recent non-criminal barricade he responded to in San Francisco. He’ll show the dramatic body-camera footage, and explain how he and his tactical counterparts resolved the incident. We’ll conclude with a behind-the scenes look at the new online version of our Response to the Non-Criminal Barricade: Disengagement and Special Relationships® training course.

Whether you are a law enforcement supervisor, negotiator, SWAT officer or simply an officer concerned with protecting yourself and your agency from liability, you won’t want to miss this event.

The way that law enforcement uses force on the mentally ill is yet another liability pitfall for police agencies like yours. Let’s come up with a plan before it’s too late.

How is your department balancing law enforcement’s governmental interest in rendering aid vs. the suicidal subject’s right to be left alone?
