The SCAC Risk Management team has begun offering a pilot De-escalation and Conflict Resolution training for law enforcement, including county detention centers and road officers.
Risk Manager Cliff Miller recently presented the interactive course for Richland County.
The class specifically addresses prevention tactics including communications techniques for people in crisis, tips for verbal and non-verbal communications, how to identify common areas of mental illness, and emotional management. Other topics include:
- Challenges for law enforcement;
- The escalating behavior chain; and
- The duty to intervene.
If your county is interested in this training opportunity, contact Cliff Miller.
