Verbal De-Escalation and Crisis Communication

Event Dates
Cypress Fairbanks ISD Police Department

Houston, TX

The ability to organize your thinking and calmly respond can help you avoid a potential crisis. Every year, around 1000 people are shot and killed by police. Five hundred of them wielded a gun while the rest of them held knives, toy weapons, or no weapons at all. Join us to learn how de-escalation communication skills can defuse those situations and lead to more successful resolutions.
