Due to the events of 2020, the stress that “essential” workers feel is at an all-time high. They are doing their best to show up for work and interact with patrons, while at the same time taking care of their own needs and the needs of their family. Patrons are not able to accomplish important tasks with the speed and efficiency that they are used to and may be frustrated, angry, and even scared. Some patrons even resist or refuse to wear their covid mask inside your park district facilities. All this is a recipe for confrontation and violence. 

Join Joe Crimmins, the Founder and President of Serve and Protect Law LLC™, a retired Police Detective Sergeant with 30 years of experience in criminal investigations and emergency preparedness as he will:

  • Discuss irate patrons in the workplace, and the verbal skills that park district staff can use to de-escalate irate patrons.
  • Offer “Active Threat” strategies for your staff members when a patron interaction turns dangerous.
  • Provide a policy and a process to deal with patrons in your facilities that are not wearing a mask or refuse to wear a mask.
