In response to CALEA accreditation requirements and / or public allegations of racial profiling, many law enforcement agencies have begun to track the race, ethnicity, and gender of those who are stopped, searched, arrested, and / or were the subject of a use of force by officers.

If not researched and written properly, these reports have the potential to be misinterpreted by the media or community groups, needlessly damage the public image of your agency, undermine the legitimacy of your agency with the public, and lower officer morale. This workshop offers crucial skills necessary to present the information in your report in a manner that minimizes the risk of misinterpretation or manipulation, and presents the work of your agency in the most accurate and professionally responsive manner possible.

The vast majority of citizen complaints and internal acts of employee misconduct encountered by government agencies are generated by a small number of problem individuals. It is crucial, therefore, that government agencies can successfully discipline these few “bad apples”.

In other cases, disciplinary action is necessary to hold essentially good employees accountable for misconduct that threatens agency operations. In these cases, making discipline stick is actually in the interest of the employee, as it can serve as a much needed “wake up call” to an employee before performance issues become so serious that termination is required or public safety is threatened.

Chief Harry P. Dolan’s, (Ret.) Surviving Verbal Conflict® Training Program has been provided to tens of thousands of public safety professionals throughout the country. In response to popular requests, Chief Dolan has developed a train the trainer program providing public safety professionals with the training, tools and material required to train agency personnel in the highly acclaimed Surviving Verbal Conflict® Verbal De-escalation Program.

Surviving Verbal Conflict® Verbal De-escalation Train-the-Trainer course develops and prepares public safety professionals to serve as trainers in Surviving Verbal Conflict®. The 3 ½ day (26 hour) course covers the Surviving Verbal Conflict® course material as well as instructor development content such as how to present the lesson plan & program, student learning styles, and teaching practical exercises. Participants will be provided with all instructor related materials supporting their presentations i.e. SVC PowerPoint presentation, workbooks, practical exercises, as well as ongoing technical support.

Today’s increased service demands and the scrutiny placed upon public safety professionals have resulted in a growing need to master verbal conflict management skills. When negative verbal encounters escalate to the point where physical intervention is used, criticism often results when it is later discovered that there is little evidence of verbal de-escalation techniques employed by officers. This is particularly true when incident video and audio reviews are utilized. In some cases, it has become clear that the verbal actions of the public safety responders served to escalate the situation. Administrators are now asking, “Is this an area in which the training tape has run out? Have we adequately trained our personnel to successfully manage and respond to verbal confrontations in a professional manner?"

A new level of society-wide transparency has accompanied technological developments in recording and in individuals’ ability to engage in public expression through social media. This has presented law enforcement agencies with new opportunities in identifying suspects, solving crimes and holding officers accountable to agency standards of conduct. It has also presented these agencies with significant challenges. Most notable of these challenges is a level of transparency and scrutiny for officers—on and off the job—that is unprecedented.
