“Between March 15th and the 20th, nearly every Grass Valley Police Officer, from the Chief to the newest officer, attended and completed Crisis Intervention/De-escalation Training!
Beginning in 2019 the Grass Valley Police Department, Nevada City Police Department, and Nevada County Sheriff’s Office partnered with the Foothill House of Hospitality to create and facilitate this training for every officer/deputy in Nevada County.
Although COVID-19 slowed the process down we are happy to have finally been able to hold this very valuable training! This training consisted of 16 hours of instruction and practical application of the principles.
Training topics included:
– Contacting/Interacting with Persons in Crisis
– Understanding the role of Developmental Disabilities, Psychiatric Disabilities, and Substance Use Disorder in Crisis Situations
– Emotional Intelligence
– Practical De-escalation Skill Development
– Legislative and practical updates regarding use of force (AB392/SB11)
A big thank you to Hospitality House-Community Shelter for helping administer a grant and work collaboratively with law enforcement to create this curriculum.”
