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.
