ABSTRACT

Defusing Difficult Encounters   [open pdf - 3MB]

"Law enforcement officers across the nation make tens of thousands of public contacts every single day, including those resulting from casual encounters, responses to calls for service, traffic enforcement, and arrests. The majority of these contacts are routine and uneventful, with most members of the public recognizing and complying with lawful instructions. Sometimes, officers become involved in interactions in which achieving compliance is more difficult, as the result of either willful resistance or a person's inability to comply. In either scenario, the first priority of involved officers is their own safety and the safety of those around them."
