I.M.P.A.C.T Project–Verbal De-Escalation Training

The City of Brookville Police Department has contracted with a nationally recognized training company, Randy Means & Associates, LLC in Norfolk, VA to provide our officers with state of the art Verbal De-Escalation Training also known as “Firearms Training for the Mouth.” This training allows individual training, assessment and remediation for police interpersonal communication. It can be used for individual self-study or as an aid to live training and coaching. It involves thirty scenes, each 5 to 6 communicative junctures, officer responses at each juncture, and a tutorial after each officer response. All police officers will be required to complete and successfully pass all tested components of this training program before receiving final certification.
