Verbal De-escalation is a very valuable skill-set in the security & law enforcement arenas. When people are authorized to carry and use deadly weapons, they must only use them as a last resort.

Officers must understand how the principles of de-escalation can provide effective tools during contacts with the Public and result in improved decision-making, reduction in situational intensity, and outcomes with greater voluntary compliance.
