Connecting Youth and Communities with Law Enforcement (CYCLE) Training is presented by the Police Training Institute of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids. This course will enhance law enforcement officers’ understanding of the behavioral development of youth as it relates to de-escalating potentially violent confrontations with police. Officers and relevant public safety personnel will learn how to recognize the factors that impact the youths’ likely response to interactions with authority in their communities, and provide tactical tools for officers to effectively defuse potentially life-threatening situations. It is also important for law enforcement to learn tools that help recognize unconscious biases and how to manage them.
