Tact, Tactics, and Trust is an evidence-based police training system that combines essential officer safety, communication, and trust-building skills into a unified curriculum. These skills determine officers' safety and effectiveness on every public interaction, as well as during their interactions with subordinates, peers, and leaders. Like any kind of human performance, police-community interactions must be learned and deliberately practiced in a realistic context. For this reason, classes are as interactive as possible, even though a large number of officers may be attending.
