Conflict Resolution

Police officers respond to a variety of calls varying from a noise complaint to a traumatic event including loss of life. Many of the times that police are called it is to settle a disagreement between two people. It is inevitable that at some point people are going to disagree over their values, ideas or desires. This creates conflict between the parties involved. We are called to resolve that conflict. This course is designed to develop an understanding of the obstacles blocking resolution. It will increase understanding of active listening skills and methods that can be used to help resolve a conflict. The student will also gain an understanding of sympathy, empathy and questions that can be useful in conflict resolution.
