In recent years, sharp criticism and scrutiny have occurred on high-profile use-of-force cases by the police. Law enforcement is asked to reimagine police response to reduce the incidents of force and mitigate violent confrontations with the community. The critical goal of every law enforcement interaction with the community is to have voluntary compliance and when this does not occur, to de-escalate the situation as quickly as possible while using minimal force. Communication and real-time intelligence are key components for achieving a successful outcome.
This webinar will cover how police agencies across the country are using drones and other technologies to contact individuals for conflict resolution, crisis intervention, and real-time intelligence to defuse tense situations while keeping First Responders and the community safe. This webinar will help you:
- Identify new response techniques for tense situations
- Examine how drones are being used for situational awareness and communication
- Recognize new techniques utilizing technology to de-escalate situations and obtain compliance
