Numerous highly publicized law enforcement encounters that have ended in use of deadly force over the last several years have caused a firestorm of controversy—and have left law enforcement officers and the citizens they protect and serve more on edge than perhaps any time in U.S. history. With the public and police officers alike feeling misunderstood, afraid, and scrutinized like never before, the average citizen encounter has grown dramatically more challenging, and the potential consequences of any miscues or misunderstandings have only increased in magnitude and severity.
What can those of us in law enforcement do, as a practical matter, to better “protect and serve“ those to whom we have sworn duties, while still keeping a proper eye out for our own safety as well? In this highly interactive workshop, we will use a series of movie clips to generate lively, “real-world” discussion of the day-to day challenges, risks, and hurdles that law enforcement personnel face on the job, and to identify practical strategies for navigating or mitigating them. The workshop will be facilitated by three trained professionals who have dedicated their careers to effective and practical conflict resolution and stress management in the fields of law, law enforcement, and counseling. And best of all, you will have a chance to comment on and participate in the discussion, and to help one another identify and implement the most effective strategies for truly “keeping the peace” wherever possible.
