In 2020, he founded Mission-Peace, a professional training collaborative to bring the best live training to professionals – especially leaders and authority figures while simultaneously working with the community (especially youth) to teach Respectful Engagement.
The best de-escalators in the world employ very specific skills and strategies. Jedd Hafer’s mission is to share these skills and strategies with law enforcement & other authority figures in fun and memorable ways (he also performs in comedy clubs and knows the power of laughter and funny stories).
His clientele includes USAF, Department of Corrections, Department of Youth Corrections, Police & Sheriff’s Departments, School Districts, Security Teams and Professional Athletes.
