Defusing a crisis with talk instead of force
DIXON – Get the call. Drive to the scene. Help someone. Or, try to, at least, because you're a cop, and that's what you do. This call is to a hotel room, where there is a woman inside. This isn't a real crisis for Dixon police Officer Aaron Simonton and Sgt. Mike Wolfley. Rather, it is a role-playing lesson at the end of the fourth day of training this week at Comfort Inn and Suites in Dixon.
