Critique of 2016 Conference presentation

From Vice President Rob Scheben:
The 10th annual Crime Prevention Conference, held in Billings this year, featured speaker Kevin Briggs.  Kevin is a retired California Highway Patrol Sgt. and was assigned to the motorcycle traffic division.  Kevin prevented over 200 people from committing suicide from leaping off the golden Gate Bridge during his 22 year career.  His natural ability to communicate with people in crisis has given more then 200 people another chance at life.  Kevin focused on not what you can do or say to people in crisis , but rather the importance of listening to their story without any providing judgment.  He shared several stories and emphasized that he initially didn’t have any formal negotiation training until later in his career.  This was an uplifting and positive session that everyone should eventually experience.
