Officers Attending Implicit Bias & De-Escalation Training
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) — CPD officers are attending Implicit Bias & De-Escalation training hosted by Silver State Consulting Group LLC. The goal of this training is to reduce the need to use force, recognize the sanctity of life, protect officers from harm, reduce injuries to subjects, and build community trust.
Every CPD officer will have this training, online or in the classroom. With the national focus on bias, profiling and de-escalation training, this training is helping to better prepare officers across the country by offering innovative and effective training to improve decision making and to assist officers in handling high-pressure situations to serve their communities effectively.
The Cheyenne Police Department has already been implementing this type of training during our mandated quarterly officer training, but wanted additional training to make our officers even more prepared and equipped.
In addition to this mandated quarterly training, the department also conducts firearms training and use of force scenario training every month. We would like to thank Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for funding this event.
