Officer's Attend De-escalation Training
On May 19, 2021 members of the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department attended a full day of verbal de-escalation / surviving verbal conflict training at our police headquarters.
In July of 2020 Lt. David Leahy and Ofc. Ted Cam became certified verbal de-escalation instructors through the Dolan Consulting Group. Since last July officers within our department have attended this course which teaches verbal de-escalation and conflict resolution techniques.
Additionally, other subjects covered in the training include officer wellness, dealing with incidents involving individuals experiencing a mental health crisis, and a police officers duty to intervene. The goal is that by the end of this year every member of the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department will complete this very important training.
