This episode was originally published on May 25, 2021.

De-escalation tactics are offered up as a solution to reduce excessive use of force by police officers, with state leaders like republican Governor Mike DeWine even calling for the training to be mandatory statewide. In May, the Columbus Division of Police brought in national expert Mark Lowther to train officers in de-escalation. In this episode, host Edie Driskill talks with Lowther to find out exactly what de-escalation tactics are and how they might work.
