|Video: The art of asking questions|
While the skillful use of giving commands to subjects can achieve a desired effect, at times that tactic falls short — at times that tactic actually telegraphs your intention to take a subject into custody. PoliceOne Columnist Gary Klugiewicz explains that by using a quieter approach — and using questions rather than commands — you can often make your intentions unknown until it’s too late (for the suspect!) and your arrest has already been effected.
Gary has been involved for over fifteen years in the development of both training & duty trauma protective equipment. He is currently employed by PoliceOne.com as a Use-of-Force subject matter expert, researcher, program developer, and training specialist where he continues to provide tactical communication skills and defensive tactics training. His collaboration with the Force Science Research Center, Team One Network, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, Verbal Judo Institute, and Purposeful Development Associates allows him to bring the most current tactical and instructional insights into his training programs. He is the lead instructor for Verbal Judo's Tactical Communication for the Correctional Professional training program.
