Vehicle Stops are People Stops: When you train for one, you train for both

Hi All,

See this article over at Police1.

Note that the same de-escalation (and hopefully non-escalation as well) tactics taught for the purpose of making vehicle pursuits as safe (physically, legally, emotionally, and otherwise) as possible are (should be) the same as keeping any people-stops safe, namely self/attitude management, nimble judgment & decision-making skills, all the while maintaining awareness of the need for immediate violence abatement if/as needed.

Train to deal well and safely with people, whether they are walking, driving, cycling, or riding a lawn mower.

Be safe.
