    I must be getting old and "wiser" as one of my colleagues once told me would happen once I got some years under my belt. In the last few years I've gone a lot less "hands on" and gotten a lot more voluntary compliance using "verbal judo" as well as other de-escalation tactics. Good for me as it means a lot ness scrapes and bruises and good for the "customers" as a lot less ER visits for them.

    The Washington State Police Academy has begun recently a new mindset of training guardians not warriors. What this means is that although they still train new officers in Defensive Tactics (125 hours), Firearms (86 hours), and other hands on stuff. They now emphasize even more verbal judo and de-escalation tactics. Defensive Tactics is probably one of the most important things for an officer to have (nowdays especially) but nothing beats good ol fashion de-escalation tactics.

    As much as I like the article, IMHO, the most effective skills for police are reasoning ability, conflict resolution and effective communication skills (oral and written). If you have a good combination of these skills, you will assuredly go hands-on a lot less.

    As for the physical stuff, Defensive Tactics is absolutely the most critical, because you always have that equipment with you.
