Practice skills to effectively resolve disturbances that may arise in community supervision, during home visits or search and seizure, or in a court setting. Review the Disturbance Resolution model, a framework for determining what level of force is necessary and reasonable in various situations. Explore the legal justification for using force, as well as situational desirability, threat assessment opportunities, officer versus subject factors, and effective communication techniques.
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Execute the proper techniques for decentralizing a subject, using escort and compliance holds, delivering focused strikes, and applying handcuffs;
- Assess threats and determine the best resolution for that situation; and
- Explain the legal justification for a probation officer's use of force.
