De-escalation for law enforcement refers to processes intended to overcome verbal resistance by persuasion and to demonstrate that reasonable efforts were made to achieve cooperation prior to the implementation of physical action, should such action become necessary. The avoidance of unnecessary, undesired, and even unconscious escalation on the part of officers is part of this process. This training identifies sound strategies and considerations for law enforcement encounters with verbally non-compliant subjects.
