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.
