Advanced Programs for Police and International Peacekeepers

The Compassionate Police track is a training, coaching, and consulting program for police departments and international peacekeeping forces, with initial offerings in the United States.


Developing a compassion competency is essential to effective law-enforcement. Incorporating compassion skills as a foundational element in police work can result in improved officer efficacy, lowered incidents of enforcement morbidity and mortality, more effective conflict management, decreased stress and the accompanying impact on disability claims and early retirements, enhanced sense of reward and satisfaction among police professionals, improved results in recruiting high-quality officer candidates, and dramatically improved public perception and support.

This track is directed toward these concepts and the research associated with them. It also examines some of the challenges departments and international forces face in implementing a compassion competency program.

International Peacekeeping Forces

International military forces continue to be charged with the task of policing in areas challenged by conflict. Their objective is to support international agreements designed to alleviate (in some measure) hostility between governments and their peoples.

Compassion and conflict management skills as well as the demonstration of compassion by international policing forces are essential to defuse misunderstanding, rage, hatred, racism, cultural differences, and violence.

Initial work on the international peacekeeping program will take place in late 2016.
