SI40 De escalation Training for Police

Taken from classroom instruction by Officer and instructor Chris Stoaks of Bend (OR) Police Dept., “de-escalation is what happens in-between contact and resolution”. This program is designed for the street officer who comes in contact with people, in high-stress and troubled circumstances, and gives them the tools to, possibly, de-escalate the situation.

In Part Two of this two-part training program, we talk with Line of Duty Technical Adviser Mark DiBona. As a retired (33-year veteran) law enforcement officer, Mark shares important lessons learned from his past experiences. Learning how to relate to people and find common ground has really helped Mark in relating to subjects who may be angry, distraught, confused or even emotionally disturbed. His approach to law enforcement was to be able to empathize with people rather than come in with a heavy-hand (if at all possible).
