This TCOLE 1849 course improves officers’ response to incidents involving people in crisis who are behaving erratically. It emphasizes public and officer safety while teaching tactical de-escalation to reduce the intensity of an encounter with a suspect. The training enables officers with additional options for voluntary compliance and to mitigate the need for a higher level of force while they maintain control of the situation.
Mandated with the passage of the Sandra Bland Act (SB 1849) by the Texas Legislature in 2017, officers with only a basic proficiency certificate are now required to obtain 8-hours of TCOLE approved de-escalation training every 48-months. This class is also required for officers who wish to obtain either an Intermediate or Advanced certificate. This class is also required to be taken in person for out of state officers needing a Texas Peace Officer’s license.
TCOLE Training Hours: 8
