- Why advocacy groups are working to reduce and eliminate traffic stops.
- How to build future trust using Jason Lehman’s concept of confident closures to calls for service and traffic stops.
- The nine “triggers of rage” that occur when conflict is present and how to slow the situation down and make better decisions.
- How to emotionally and mentally process a stop that ends badly in order to mitigate future risk.
