Verbal Defense & Influence is a structured methodology that trains non-escalation and de-escalation verbalization tactics— as well as physical positioning and proxemics, what to do when words alone fail and how to justify officer actions.
We have taken a proven in-person training program and, for thefirst time ever in public safety, made it available online to end-users.
This online training was developed by Vistelar’s Training Director, Gary Klugiewicz, who has been training verbalization tactics to public safety professionals for over three decades to hundreds of thousands of agencies. Verbal Defense & Influence has been improved upon and refined over the past 30 years with the combined expertise of many recognized authorities.
