New Full-Length Course:
De-Escalation & Minimizing Use of Force


Persons with mental illnesses, drug or alcohol addictions, or disorders such as autism can present police officers with difficult challenges. In some cases, a person may brandish a weapon or otherwise appear to pose a threat to the public, to the police, or to himself or herself. The threat may or may not be a real one, and often it is difficult to assess the level of danger. These situations become more complicated when persons cannot communicate effectively with police officers. This course provides the necessary training to address the nature of the challenge and provide solutions.
