In 1829, Sir Robert Peel proposed nine principles that describe the law enforcement profession. These principles are still valid today and serve as a reminder to police officers of the need to master interpersonal skills in order to effectively interact with the public, achieve public cooperation, and meet the basic goals of crime prevention and crime-free communities.
Peter J. McDermott and Diana Hulse bring together backgrounds in law enforcement and counselor education. When these two fields merge, they provide the missing link to successful communication in law enforcement. Their training techniques for successful communication and leadership have been presented in various settings such first line supervision with new sergeants, research symposiums, and bookstore events.
“This training needs to be introduced ASAP. As the divide between the police and the public grows, we need to start developing the skills that will bridge this unfortunate gap. The skills learned in this class would produce a more well-rounded officer, who is able to interact with the public on a much higher level.”

"Finally someone gets it! I can’t wait to implement this training in my department!"
