About IPICD

Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths, Inc. (IPICD)

Founded in 2005 by internationally-recognized defensive tactics trainer, author, and litigation consultant, John G. Peters, Jr., Ph.D., CTC, CLS, the IPICD concentrates on providing Train-the-Trainer and forensic instruction through its seminal scientifically- and legally-based excited delirium, arrest-related death, sudden in-custody death, forensics, suicide, amendment-based use-of-force, and other risk management programs. Beginning in 2006, the IPICD hosted and produced the first international conference about excited delirium, arrest-related, and sudden in-custody deaths. Held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA each Fall, IPICD conference presenters are world-class researchers, scientists, attorneys, physicians, and criminal justice practitioners who share the latest scientific, legal, medical, and best practices with attendees who come from across the globe. Since its founding, the IPICD has added several programs of instruction, including the hosting of the first international symposium on the medical, scientific, and legal constraints on human restraints.
