Livingston County Sheriff's Office PatchThe Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is touting an upcoming training for law enforcement and public safety officials.

Sheriff Steve Cox said the sheriff’s office is teaming up with Blue Shield Tactical to offer a De-Escalation Instructor Course in August. The training will be held at Comfort Inn, 250 Business Highway 36 in Chillicothe Aug, 7 to 9.

“We hope to fill this course with law enforcement from all around the Midwest. The participants will leave the course as certified instructors and may then provide their respective agency with De-Escalation training,” Cox said. De-Escalation is a very important issue and tool for public safety. This is an outstanding course for every law enforcement agency and jail/prison staff.”

According to the course outline from Blue Shield, the strategies from this course will provide officers with an effective blueprint to solve potentially unreceptive situations before they erupt.
