Positive Confrontation: The Alternative to Force, 8 hours

STC: 0920-020334

Confrontation does not have to mean “getting in someone’s face.” Verbal skills are a safe and viable alternative to force, when you know how to use them. Designed for those who have the ability to use force but want only to use it as a last resort, positive confrontation defuses escalation and provides a safer environment for the officers and people with whom they interact. Use of force can create personal and organizational liability, injury, and mountains of paperwork.
