Real World De-escalation: Incredibly relevant and applicable. It’s great to hear this sort of training from those who have backgrounds as LE and attorneys.

I’m still quite new to law enforcement so sitting in the de-escalation class was very informative. It explains some ways that I can better explain things to try and de-escalate a situation. However, it also explains that not all situations are able to be de-escalated. Which made me feel more confident in judging if a situation will be able to be de-escalated or not.

The in-person training, on-demand, and live online training provided by Blue to Gold is an absolute necessity for law enforcement personnel throughout the nation. Regardless if you are a new patrol cop to a seasoned Detective, you will get your value out of these courses. In addition, the training materials (books) they have available are also a must have to assist in making sound decisions on the road, articulating in your reports and testimony, or just as a patrol reference. I highly recommend purchasing every one of Blue to Gold's books. Each one is written in an easy-to-read and "cop talk" format. They are also organized in a manner to allow for quick reference. Overall, the cost of the training and books versus the value is unmatched. 5 out of 5 stars over and over again. -JS / Patrol Deputy
