The Georgia Police Academy has developed a new course called Tactical Diffusion Strategies. This course is designed for law enforcement officers who have direct contact with the public. In this course, students will be provided with the latest theories in verbal communication as well as situational de-escalation techniques. Some topics that will be focused on include a review of the legal considerations for use of force situations and basic concepts of verbal defense and influence. Tactical Diffusion Strategies will offer students extensive scenario-based training so the students will know how to properly employ the techniques being taught.

Only students  who are employed by a local, state, or federal agency are eligible for this training.

Please note that students must wear comfortable clothes and bring duty gear (minus firearm, ammo, OC Spray, Baton, and TASER), sunscreen, and a water bottle.

Keep a lookout for course offerings and register as soon as you can!
