Never more relevant is the issue of police brutality as we witness daily media reports of unnecessary deaths. High profile cases such as Laquan McDonald, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Philando Castile and Eric Garner serve as grim reminders of what can happen when officers over react in fear, show bias, or are improperly trained. Policing methods of yesteryear such as “ask, tell, make” can no longer be the policing method in today’s society. This is why political leaders and police department officials have put forth a call to action, seeking possible solutions to this problem, such as implementing body cameras. But not many have explored the 106 communication skill training and specifically use of body language analysis to help de-escalate conflicts between police and citizens. In this documentary we explore the urgency of this methodology and of training because it can help save so many lives.
