    The University of Scranton Police Department recently presented a half-day workshop on de-escalation strategies to nearly 40 local law enforcement officers, including college police and security personnel and municipal officers. The free workshop sought to reduce injuries and the need to use physical force by training officers to safely and effectively respond to situations involving people in crisis with effective communication and active listening. The workshop was funded through a grant from the Scranton Area Community Foundation.
