ABOUT US – IN A NUTSHELL
Mission Peace is a professional training organization developing effective communication, respectful engagement, and peaceful de-escalation techniques for those in positions of authority and the communities they serve.
Our mission is to bring peace to communities through genuine communication, relationship building, and learnable emotional skills.
Our vision is to be recognized and respected as the premiere experts in de-escalation and crisis prevention training for professionals nationwide.
THE NEED IS ENORMOUS
Now more than ever, Law Enforcement and other Security Professionals walk a difficult line between safety protocols and crisis prevention. Highly trained and skilled professionals can make all the difference between situations escalating or resolving peacefully. Mission-Peace provides industry-leading training and consultation designed to increase the skill of individuals to respectfully engage and diffuse all types of intense situations. Better skills lead to fewer use-of-force scenarios without compromising safety or vital procedures. The result is greater rapport and relationships with the entire community, with reduced stress and liability on the entire team.
HOW WE STARTED
After 20+ years training educators and professionals, founder Jedd Hafer began a focused mission to foster peace between law enforcement personnel, other peacekeepers, and the communities they serve. He assembled a team with the same heart and mission, with vast experience in homelessness issues, addiction, incarceration as well as professional training in a variety of related fields. Together, this team has refined the best techniques from multiple disciplines into what highly skilled people actually do to remain calm and respond effectively in intense and volatile situations. This curriculum, taught with learnable, research-based skills are proven to reduce violence and use-of-force incidents.
