Safety & De-Escalation Course

The Strathcona Community Policing Centre is pleased to announce and offer our newly developed Community Safety and De-Escalation Scenario training session. This free educational course has been developed in-house by the Community Policing Centre staff drawing from our training and personal experiences.

Course Details:
The purpose of the course is to provide participants with the knowledge and practical experience on how to resolve a variety of challenging situations while interacting safely and respectfully with the people involved. Such as unresponsive individual or individual setting up camp/sleeping on private property.  Through this training, we aim to increase your situational awareness, improve conflict resolution and increase your chances of creating a positive and relational interaction while reducing the possibility of aggression and/or a violent outcome.

Training will be delivered via Zoom and we are able to host up to 90 people. If you want to host more than 100 people, please contact us. Although the training is currently only available online, we hope to offer in-person sessions in the future, once it is safe to do so.
