Abstract

This report is the second of two reports examining the impact of Integrating Communications, Assessment, and Tactics (ICAT) de-escalation training for the Louisville (KY) Metro Police Department. While the Initial Findings Report provides critical information, this report provides more robust explorations of officer attitudes, self-reported behavior in the field, and supervisory functions to support and reinforce de-escalation training. The results discuss factors which predict receptivity to ICAT training, use of ICAT skills in the field, attitudes toward persons in crisis, and attitudes toward use of force.

Research Design

Randomized controlled trial (RCT)

Research Methods

Literature review, Surveys, Field-based experiment
