CLOSED -Request for Proposals: De-Escalation Training for the Police and the Community (Solicitation #2122-46)



The City of Urbana is seeking proposals from qualified firms to provide de-escalation training for all sworn police officers in the City of Urbana. This training will be supplemental to the standard training that all Urbana police officers recieve at the University of Illinois Police Training Institute. The intent is to continue to reinforce de-escalation as a foundational approach to police/community interaction in the City of Urbana.


The selected respondent team will have the qualifications and staff resources necessary to develop and deliver a curriculum that will reinforce existing skills and develop new approaches to de-escalation for members of law enforcement. The cirriculum should also include a module for community members that explains the type of training recieved by the law enforcement community related to de-escalation, the roles and responsiblities of the parties involved in a given interaction, and the limitations of de-escalation techniques.
