Course Flier


We conducted a nationwide search to determine the best and most suitable De-escalation Training out there.  Lt. Dillon’s L.E.A.D.S. Law Enforcement Active Diffusion Strategies class was exactly what we were looking for and it exceeded everyone’s expectations.   The skills taught in his course are tactically sound and can be practically applied to any situation officers may face on the street today.

Comments from Course instructed in RI

Very knowledgeable excellent speaker.
I like the explanation of the science behind emotions in how the brain worked.  It wasn’t too complicated that the average person could not understand it.  At times it felt a little soft towards combat of subjects.  Overall good education and techniques.  Good information on rushing and when dealing with EDP and liability.
He has done it all and seen it all.  Very fortunate to have the opportunity to attend this training.  Haven’t had any instructors who had been asked to speak on CNN.
Professional and informative presentation.  Effective pacing and delivery of information with real world scenarios.
Very well done.

Excellent job what a fantastic class.  Lieutenant Dillon is unbelievable instructor I look for to take in another class or seminar where he is instructed.
Very knowledgeable great information class float very well.
Excellent presentation with the application tools and methods learn from a very long career.  The delivery of the information was excellent between verbal visual aids in class participation.
