Tactical Communication is a practice used to quickly move beyond class differences to gain understanding amongst people. Though primarily a tool of first responders, it's one that all people can use.

Tactical Communication is a set of tools first responders utilize to gain the cooperation and respect of people from all economic backgrounds, especially those from poverty. First responders need to control the scene and keep everyone safe. To do that they need the understanding of the people they serve, but this skill set is one that can benefit the entire community. Based on the book Tactical Communication, this workshop explains the hidden rules of class and increases participants’ awareness of the differences in each class. Participant takeaways will be to gather better information from people of all economic backgrounds and increase ability to reduce miscommunication in any community. sponsored by City of Toledo Human Relations Commission part of Better Toledo, a personal and professional development series to ensure “you will do better in Toledo.” Certificates of completion are available to participants who take part in three or more sessions in 2022.

City of Toledo Deputy Safety Director Angel A. D. Tucker was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. He grew up in an impoverished neighborhood flooded with drugs, gangs, and violence. Within this community, Angel experienced an incredible amount of harassment and endured daily pressure to join one of the local gangs. Rather than falling victim to this pressure, Angel persevered, becoming a notable servant of his community for more than 30 years. As a young and ambitious leader in his neighborhood block watch, Angel helped organize neighborhood revitalization initiatives. He has since been dedicated to mentoring youth from similar communities. In 2011, Angel made local history by becoming the first African-American police officer to join the Oregon Police Department (OPD) in Oregon, Ohio, where he currently serves as patrolman. During his career with OPD, Angel has led the initiative for external carrier vests and is currently working on an initiative with the OPD, city officials, and Bowling Green State University to recruit a more diverse slate of candidates for first responders across the county. Angel has served on the SWAT team, Crisis Intervention Team (CIT), Crisis Negotiator Unit (CNU), Drug Abuse Response Team (DART) Honor Guard, Bike Patrol Unit, and is currently a presenter for the Citizens Police Academy. In addition, Angel is highly regarded as a leader and advocate in the field of mental health. His mission to bring awareness to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and continued traumatic stress disorder (CTSD) has been acknowledged and integrated into his Tactical Communication work. These efforts have been recognized locally by the mental health board and other organizations, earning him the 2020 Officer of the Year award for Lucas County.
