Description:
This one-day program is designed to provide officers with the skills necessary to obtain maximum compliance from offenders and the general public. The officer will be better prepared to defuse not only potentially dangerous situations, but also every day occurrences.
 
This program will give the officer the ability to utilize empathetic listening with the individual they are interacting with, while maintaining control of the situation. An officer’s ability to communicate effectively and persuasively, while utilizing sound judgment, can be a deciding factor in whether or not he or she will make it home safely. Compliance is not solely achieved through force. Compliance can be obtained by having the ability to understand presence and communicating effectively. Possessing these skill sets can make an officer’s job easier and more rewarding. Officers need to be able to read people and attempt to understand the mind set of those they are interacting with; whether on an official or informal basis.
 
Through this training, the officer will be better prepared to defuse those situations where the use of force might seem be the only anticipated outcome.
