Engaging and Interactive T3 User-Level Class in Bellevue, WA
Thanks to Bellevue Police Department for hosting Tuesday's T3 - Tact, Tactics, and Trust User-Level course. We had an outstanding group of trainers and officers from Bellevue PD, Auburn PD, Issaquah PD, King County SO, Marysville PD, and Seattle PD. Here's Polis Training Director Sgt. (ret.) Don Gulla coaching officers in a scenario exercise on how to integrate tactical and verbal skills to ensure that a suicidal man who has agreed to surrender is safely and respectfully taken into custody. Creating a positive "ripple effect" helps ensure a safe resolution not just to this incident, but to future contacts this person, his family, and watching neighbors may have with police.
