Resilience and 21st Century Law Enforcement Skills Part 2 - De-Escalation
Time & Location
About the Event
This course examines the most common pathway the police use to increase citizen perceptions of legitimacy. This course will familiarize the students with strategies and techniques on de-escalation within the law enforcement and family community. This pathway is through the use of the following:
1. Procedural Justice
2. Crisis Intervention Training
3. Verbal De-escalation
Students will further develop their understanding of the research that confirms when people perceive the police as legitimate, they are more likely to report higher levels of satisfaction and confidence in the police (both for individual officers and the institution), perceive the police as effective in their crime-control efforts, and are more willing to assist police and accept the manifest outcomes of an interaction with police (Tyler 2004). Police legitimacy thus engenders compliance, fosters cooperation, and improves citizen satisfaction with police, thus facilitating the capacity of police to maintain order and control crime.
Cost per student: $225
This course is limited to a maximum of 36 students.
