California – 11-99

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

This job takes the heart of a warrior.  It will also drag you down into an abyss if you’re not paying attention.  Vices that begin slowly often turn into snowballs travelling downhill. It is not weak to ask for help. There is no shame in reaching out to another for comfort or solace.  “I’ve got your six,” should not just apply to calls.  Watch over one another and intervene, if necessary.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. 

-Deuteronomy 31:6

Training Class Profile

De-escalation should be more than a training course, it should be a culture. But creating that culture starts with great training. Today’s officers need to know the specific tactics they can use to avoid a violent confrontation. They need a rock-solid understanding of new use of force laws and liability cases so they can make well informed decisions. They deserve a modern, highly-specialized training where the focus is on learning, not checking a box.

There is no more high-liability occupation than being a patrol officer in the year 2021. But in order to make those officers successful, it takes a team of highly trained dispatchers, supervisors and training staff. To be on the same page, your team needs to all be trained the same way. That is why we recommend your team attends the Practical De-Escalation and Tactical Conduct© course.
