Police Officers Everywhere Can Benefit From Humane Policing Techniques

Press Release – Broomfield, CO, November 3, 2017 ― Can “humane policing” succeed in a society rife with conflict and mistrust? Former deputy Darron Spencer knows from personal experience that the answer is a resounding yes.

Spencer addresses this intensifying crisis and shares his techniques for neutralizing negative perceptions in his new book, Humane Policing: How Perspectives Can Influence Our Performance.

Drawing on his experience as a marine, corrections officer and sheriff’s deputy, Spencer reveals his unique approach through real instances of how he implemented “humane policing” and why it worked.

The book also exposes the nuances of police work and shows how self-control and understanding can mitigate potentially dangerous situations, with examples of how those upholding the law could alter their interactions with those suspected of breaking it.

Written for law enforcement professionals as well as the general public, Humane Policing explores the changes that law enforcement needs to make, chronicles the experiences that shaped Spencer’s personal perspective, and offers life-changing tools to help officers everywhere better serve their communities.

Author Darron Spencer worked in a patrol division for just 20 months before a debilitating condition ended his career. As a deputy, Spencer oversaw more than 250 cases that resulted in 40 felony and 74 misdemeanor arrests. He assisted in four death investigations and booked in more than 150 pieces of evidence. He was awarded Deputy of the Year and received the Ribbon of Merit.

He achieved tremendous success gaining cooperation from individuals, suspects and even career criminals while investigating cases. When Spencer’s police work was cut short, he sought a new avenue to public service.

Now he travels the country to meet with local police departments and share his approach to policing. His goal is to improve the relationships between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve and ultimately the public image of law enforcement officers on a national scale.
