Dynamics of Officer/Citizen Encounters

Hampton, VA | September 1, 2017 | Other Training Opportunities

Increased Officer and Public Safety — Police interactions with citizens are in the national spotlight. What previously wouldn’t have made the local paper now makes national news. Officers need tools to effectively engage citizens in a professional manner without compromising their own safety in the process. That’s why Dynamics of Officer/ Citizen Encounters was created.

Through guided discussions, video analysis and case studies, participants will examine:

  • Effective Communication with People in Crisis
  • Current Research about the Threats to Officer Safety
  • Awareness: Going Beyond “Keep Your Head on a Swivel”
  • Addressing the Culture of Speed in Law Enforcement
  • Characteristics of Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA)
  • Unconditional Respect as an Officer Safety Tool

This course is offered by Command Presence with Instructor John Bostain (retired, Hampton PD) and is hosted by Hampton University Police Department and Hampton Police Division.

(Ed.: The VACP recently offered an abbreviated 4-hour version of the course at our Law Enforcement Symposium in Fredericksburg in April and it was well-received.  John is an excellent and engaging instructor.)
