De-Escalation – What Does This Mean? Use of Force Policy Development and Training Standards (1 hour)
Thursday, October 11, 2018 – 2:00 PM Eastern / 1:00 PM Central / 12:00 PM Mountain / 11 AM Pacific
When Police Officers are involved in a use of force incident, the public directs much of its attention toward the circumstances surrounding the incident prior to the use of force. This is especially true if the incident is perceived to have been handled correctly. In most incidents, the opportunity to de-escalate the incident is present, and thus potentially preventable. However, that is not always the case.
De-Escalation is a term that is being used across the Country to evaluate the means to reduce police use of force. What does this term mean? The term is used by Law Enforcement, the media and experts as a required standard during use of force incidents. De-Escalation has been a part of use of force training since the beginning. Ensuring that officers decrease the severity of the force use in an incident in direct response to a decrease in the level of resistance. How does this De-Escalation term effect our policy and training?
The law enforcement community is attempting to understand what De-Escalation is. The purpose of this webinar is to examine legal standards applicable to de-escalation tactics and the Courts interpretation especially when dealing with subjects who are incapacitated or suffering from mental illness.
