FPD provides de-escalation training to Frederick bar, restaurant staff


FREDERICK, Md. (WDVM) — In an effort to enhance the Nighttime Taskforce, the Frederick Police Department recently worked with local bars and restaurant establishments to provide de-escalation and tactical communication training in connection with its activities in the Nighttime Taskforce.

Police trained more than 40 bar and restaurant workers in collaboration with the Downtown Frederick Partnership and strived to equip bar and restaurant personnel with the required communication skills to de-escalate situations they may experience with clients at their business.

“The Frederick Police Department relies on tactical communication every day to ensure positive outcomes with every person we interact with. This tactical communication will serve as another tool for staff at bars and restaurants in Frederick in an effort to prevent incidents that require police intervention. However, this partnership also serves to continue building relationships with these staff members and establishments, so they can feel comfortable calling the police whenever needed.”
