De-Escalation Training Program

About

This federally funded program will promote de-escalation tactics within law enforcement. The primary goal is to deliver the most advanced de-escalation training curated by research, innovation, and implementation of best practices. This project was made possible with a grant from the US DOJ COPS Office to the University of New Haven, grant #15JCOPS-22-GK-03552-PPSE.

Two-Day Sessions

These free, two-day training programs will deliver best practices in de-escalation including procedural justice, correct de-escalation language, officer adjustments for varying threat stages and environments, body language, conflict management, recognizing mental health and disability issues and means to adjust interactions based upon rapid personality identification.

  • Open only to the first 20 currently-sworn law enforcement officials who register. Form must be completed in its entirety.
  • Materials will be provided
