  • LE704.1. Describe the components of the communication process between individuals.

    the speaker must transmit a message (a request, an order, a question, or a description) in a form that the receiver/listener understands. e listener then acknowledges the message by providing feedback or responding, then becoming a speaker as well. a listener most e๏ฌ€ectively understands when the sender speaks clearly, using the proper tone of voice and rate of speech.

    LE704.2. Describe the characteristics of an officer who communicates effectively.

    LE704.3. Describe the role of listening and speaking in effective communication.

    ...

    LE704.4. Describe how nonverbal communication can help an officer communicate effectively.

    people communicate nonverbally through posture, muscle tension, facial expression, and even how long it takes a person to respond to a question.

    Crossed arms or legs may indicate deception or defensiveness.

    Sweating, rapid breathing, fidgeting, or blinking may indicate nervousness.

    anger is sometimes demonstrated through clenched fists, pacing, clamped teeth, or a clear unwillingness to communicate.

    When a person is nervous or withholding information, he or she might rock back and forth.

    Frowns can show displeasure, uneasiness, or confusion.

    Smiles may indicate pleasure, confusion, or failure to understand.

    A lack of obvious emotion may indicate shock, fear, not hearing or understanding, or a sociopathic personality.

    a receptive person who feels at ease with the o๏ฌƒcer and the situation may have a relaxed posture with arms down by the side or comfortably in the lap.

    LE704.5. Explain how eye contact can relate to an individual's emotional state when communicating.

    avoiding eye contact with an o๏ฌƒcer may mean the person is shy, uneasy, shameful, fearful, or guilty. Looking directly at the o๏ฌƒcer may indicate that the person is truthful or challenging. If a person takes quick or cautious peeks at the o๏ฌƒcer, he or she may be seeking approval from the o๏ฌƒcer.

    LE704.6. Describe an individual's cultural influences that can affect interpersonal communications with an officer.

    Culture can influence interpersonal interaction reactions, such as someone avoiding eye contact. One group might consider certain mannerisms and gestures to be appropriate, while another group might consider them extremely rude. an o๏ฌƒcer's eye contact can either intimidate the listener or indicate concern and openness
    Certain cultures view eye contact as a sign of disrespect or aggression

    LE704.7. Explain techniques for evaluating an individual's verbal and nonverbal communication

    listen attentively, ask questions to determine if the person understands, and observe facial expressions that show agreement or confusion. You may also watch for gestures, such as shoulder shrugging instead of a verbal response, which may indicate a lack of understanding

    LE704.8. Recognize potential and actual barriers to effective communication when interacting with the community.

    Barriers include personal prejudices, stereotyping, and racial or ethnic slurs. Miscommunication may occur as a result of age or generational di๏ฌ€erences. Language di๏ฌ€erences, profane or derogatory language, and disrespectful hand or body gestures can also serve as communication barriers. personal, environmental, and situational distractions can also disrupt accurate communication.

    LE704.9. Explain how officers must convey a positive self-image when interacting with the community.

    Your appearance is the first nonverbal message you give upon arriving at a scene. Keep your uniform clean and pressed and your shoes shined. Maintain your personal hygiene

    LE704.10. Define a command presence as a form of nonverbal communication.

    Command presence is an o๏ฌƒcer's demeanor and confidence exhibited by personal appearance, erect posture, alertness, and attention to surroundings. Command presence is an o๏ฌƒcer's most valuable nonverbal tool, and you develop it through a combination of training and self-confidence.

    LE704.11. Identify how self-talk and self-evaluation assist the officer in communicating professionally with the community.

    Self-talk strategies for a law enforcement professional include recalling skills and information learned during training, applying agency policies and procedures, and thinking through a professional response.

    Self-talk enables you to keep thoughts, verbal and nonverbal communications, and emotional responses in check and on track to assessing a situation and completing a task.

    ...

    While being aware of your own perceptions, assumptions, and limitations, you must also be aware that others have perceptions and assumptions of you. to communicate e๏ฌ€ectively, you must not allow emotions to color your words or actions. remain open- minded and sincerely listen to the speaker without imposing your cultural biases and values on the speaker or how you understand the information. Be the calming presence, and do not allow your anger to escalate a situation. hostility and rudeness have no place in an o๏ฌƒcer's relationship with the community.

    ...

    LE704.12. Explain the role of professionalism and courtesy when meeting the community's expectations of a law enforcement officer.

    the community expects o๏ฌƒcers to behave in a courteous, e๏ฌƒcient, and accessible manner, treating all people impartially with consideration and compassion. O๏ฌƒcers can build community trust in local law enforcement by upholding the legal rights of citizens without bias.

    Displaying professional behavior when dealing with the community is just as important as demonstrating proficiency with firearms or in defensive tactics. a slur or disparaging comment made by an o๏ฌƒcer can inflict emotional harm on the person who hears it

    ...
