This 8 hour course presents a review of basic active listening and verbal de-escalation skills followed by scenario based training in a firearms simulator. In the simulations, the participant is able to apply the interactive skills necessary to de-escalate a potential threat in order to learn avoidance of the use of unnecessary force. By using the Virtra 300 degree simulator, the participants are able to have an immersive, realistic experience when applying de-escalation principles.
The training program is a partnership between LEIC and the Global Security Program at the Howard H. Baker Center for Public Policy. Green and Jones, along with Howard Hall, director of the Global Security Program and several other instructors recently completed chemical weapons response training in Nigeria. The program, funded by a U.S. State Department grant, also will take the team to Indonesia and The Philippines. The training included simulated chemical weapons laboratories, and participants learned what to do if a chemical weapon is used. Participants also learned to identify chemical weapons, evacuate scenes, collect hazardous materials and clean up laboratories.
