The truth about deescalation.

Truth: It takes BOTH sides in a crisis to deescalate a crisis. There is no magical one sided tactic that law enforcement can summon or train that can automatically cause a dangerous situation to calm down to a reasonable solution. Police officers are not required to give up their safety, or the safety of the public while attempting to "deescalate" persons who are a danger to themselves or others.Deescalation is a word thrown around quite often without a second thought to what it actually is.When is deescalation no longer safe? When is deescalation no longer an option during a crisis?These questions will never have one answer.
