  • Controlling an Incident - do you want info?

    Ok, I just got off the phone with a former police officer who now works in handling agressive behavior situations, and offers training for security officers, human resources personnel and corporate managers. Would you be interested in having this gentleman present a regular column via the Security/Guard Services section of the site regarding de-escalation of agressive behaviours, early identification of such behaviours, physical force usage in these situations, etc.?

      Yes

      I received the MANDT (aggressive person) certification last year. It was very helpful. I think a column on this topic would be welcomed.

          Geoff, anything that makes this profession more effective and its members more efficient is a welcome addition. Please welcome that person with open arms. We should do the same, open minds and hearts.
          Enjoy the day,

            Add it. Add it. Add it.

            Police Officers may seek (for whatever reasons) to escalate a situation to an arrestable level. We don't have, nor need, that tactic. After all, if the bad guy goes away happy, he's not a bad guy anymore.

              I'm all for it. Any knucklehead can escalate a situation, but it takes brains and skill to defuse a situation. It?s also the most satisfying way to deal with a problem.

                Sounds like some of the most practical skills people in our line of work need to learn.

                    That would be a great addition! I would also really love to hear his opinion on "Excited Delirium". Is it a true condition, or an after-the-fact excuse for brutality. A friend of mine from the Minneapolis Police wrote me an interesting email on his take, but I need to ask him if it's cool I post it on here.
