“This course is designed to educate officers before the fight with effective communication skills and de-escalation strategies for roadside engagements. Often, good tactical responses by itself are good de-escalation responses. However, an officer must also have plan B when escalation is ineffective.”
Lt. Kevin Dillon (ret)
