Insight Policing Training


 Insight Policing is a community--‐based, problem solving skill--‐set that merges discoveries of conflict resolution into policing practice. Principally, it teaches officers the cognitive patterns responsible for conflict behavior and the tools required to not only defuse it, but to understand it and respond to it effectively and safely.

Insight Policing skills have been described as a “mind trick” that deescalates conflict behavior, encourages cooperation and compliance, facilitates investigations, and positions officers to make targeted and precise law enforcement decisions that citizens find fair.  The communication framework of Insight Policing takes the mystery out of de--‐escalation. It enhances officers’ ability to enforce the law with legitimacy and strengthens the integrity, nobility and professionalism of policing.

Insight Policing training incorporates environmental and personal awareness skills, cultural competency, communication skills and a unique questioning framework that targets the decision making of citizen, especially when the citizen is showing signs of stress and challenging the authority of the law.
