Instructor Bio

Don Moore has been in law enforcement for 35 years starting as a U.S. Marine Military Police Officer where he helped design and implement the MCAS Yuma Special Reaction Team as team trainer and rear defense man. He received specialized training and certification as a military police investigator and in counter/anti-terrorism operations as well. After proudly serving his country, Don transitioned to civilian law enforcement.


Don graduated at the top of his police academy class and served as an airport police officer before moving to a community-based police department. Don found a home for the past 20 years at the Washington University in St. Louis Police Department where he has held billets as a crisis intervention officer/trainer, special reaction team trainer, evidence technician unit coordinator, investigator, field training officer, department training coordinator, and CALEA accreditation coordinator.  Don designed and implemented his department’s evidence technician unit and crisis intervention team concept. He has been a department trainer since 2003 in over twenty disciplines.


Don was nearly murdered by a suspect in the line of duty in 1996 which started him on the path as a law enforcement trainer. He credits his previous training for surviving the incident, but also saw the need for increased quality training not only in tactics but employee well-being as well. His critical incident is show cased at the International Law Enforcement Educator and Trainers Association conference in a course titled, “The Devil Comes at Midnight: One Officer’s Real Struggle with PTSD.”


Don is certified as a law enforcement de-escalation and implicit bias instructor by the Force Science Institute and L.E.A.D.S (Law Enforcement ActiveDiffusion Strategies) Program and has extensive training in Human Terrain Mapping which addresses human behavior factors. He specializes in interpersonal skills, technical skills, skill development training, management/leadership, and policy development. 


Don holds hold a Bachelor of Arts in Management, a Master of Science in Criminal Justice (both summa cum laude), and a Certificate in the Administration of Criminal Justice from Webster University in St. Louis as well as a Certificate in Forensic Psychology from Washington University in St.Louis. He is completing the Webster University Certificate Program for On-Line Teaching certification.




Pre-Payment is not required to register or attend IN-PERSON seminars. Pre-payment is required for WEBINARS and ONLINE COURSES.


Course Objectives

This 16-hour course is designed for all law enforcement, correctional, and security personnel. It combines the concepts of use of force, crisis intervention, implicit bias, personal wellness, and de-escalation to provide the student with the tools to address many critical and stressful incidents. After completion, the student can apply critical tactical thinking and action skills to most incidents to "slow down" the response and explore alternatives for a successful conclusion. Use of reasonable forces is a reality in the field; however, this training provides the necessary attributes to avoid the "lawful, but awful" uses of forces. This refers to those times when, legally, the officer is justified to use force, but time permitted for alternative conclusions. This is a necessary element in our decision-making equations for the 21st century.

This course includes force de-escalation, L.E.A.D.S. (Law Enforcement Active Diffusion Strategies) and Human Terrain Mapping (human behavior) concepts. The course will be approved by the Missouri Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission (POST) for 16 hours of continuing education credit and will include the necessary sub-category hours for Offender Behavior Analysis and de-escalation.
