Street Smart De-escalation training integrates de-escalation techniques / officer-safety tactics with scenario-based training and virtual reality training in the Utah Attorney General VirTra® virtual reality center.
As officers face increasing demands to effectively deal with persons with mental illness and emotional disturbances, many agencies have sought Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training for all. With emerging studies and national support recommending agencies provide varied training options to address these types of calls for service, this training provides all officers with the same de- escalation skills trained in the CIT Utah academy, while allowing agencies to develop the best practices of true Crisis Intervention Teams.
Space is limited to 12 participants to allow maximum interactive training.
