Law Enforcement officers confront conflict every day. Having the skills and understanding to handle it effectively, and most importantly, safely, is essential. The conflict resolution skill-set for law enforcement, Insight Policing, teaches that curiosity goes a long way. Learning to ask targeted questions that get at the root of why a person is aggressive, resistant or non-compliant, can help officers control an escalating situation, get to the root of challenging interactions quickly, and devise targeted solutions that encourage compliance and build trust– an asset in all areas of enforcement.
In this session, participants will learn:
- A framework for understanding conflict decision making
- How curiosity can de-escalate tense encounters
- Essential questions for handling conflict effectively
