Authority without Arrest: Resolving Conflict and Gaining Compliance in Campus Policing

Campus police and security serve and protect thousands of college and university students across the country. They enforce campus rules, investigate crimes, and ultimately keep students safe and accountable. While many campus officers are armed in case of extreme danger, few have the power to arrest. Their authority is fortified through communication and trust. In an age where law enforcement is viewed skeptically, especially among young people, strengthening skills in conflict resolution and communication is essential. In this hour, we will discuss the conflict officers encounter on campus and key skills from Insight Policing: Conflict Resolution for Law Enforcement that use communication, discovery, and critical thinking to work through challenging encounters for effective results.

Positive Impact: Connecting and Communicating with Justice Involved Youth

Mentors, probation officers, advocates, and others who work closely with justice-involved youth know how challenging it can be to help young people navigate the system and find positive life paths. Many of these youth have experienced severe emotional and physical trauma, generational violence, and poverty that not only put them at risk for social disconnection and recidivism but can create barriers in communication and understanding. When conflict arises between youth and helping adults, efforts to assist can fall apart.  In this webinar youth mentor and advocate, Jarriel Jordan, law enforcement veteran, Michael Delaney, and conflict resolution specialist, Megan Price discuss the unique challenges that come with working with justice-involved youth and key strategies for breaking through those challenges. You will learn techniques you can use to:

  • Understand a young person’s perspective, even when faced with aggression and noncompliance
  • Connect with youth who seem unreachable
  • Motivate youth to find a positive mindset and hope for their futures
