Distance Learning Training
As a law enforcement officer there is a chance you will find yourself on a scene where someone is severely wounded. If your life is still in danger from an active shooter or some other threat and medics are unavailable it is up to you to react, this course can assist you in gaining the skills and confidence to provide immediate lifesaving measures. Tactical Combat Casualty Care or TCCC assists military personnel in dealing with this type of situation, and this course is designed to help law enforcement officers benefit from the medical knowledge gained from over 10 years of combat. This course demonstrates how you can incorporate it into your own tactics, techniques, and procedures in responding to drug search warrants, felony arrests and high liability duties.
This course is designed to provide an overview of Troop Leading Procedures and the Army Operations Order to officers of a Law Enforcement Agency (LEA). This course covers the benefits of keeping a mission folder and all the supporting documents required by an LEA for Drug Search Warrant Operations; the benefits of a standardized mission brief and describes the difference between a report writing style and the directive style for writing orders; introduces the LEA to the Army Operations Order format redesigned for the civil nature of police operations; introduces the LEA to Troop Leading Procedures and how they apply to the deliberate (search warrant) and hasty (call out) planning cycles; covers planning considerations in order to identify all aspects of the given scenario in the civil environment. Upon completion of this course students will be able to better task organize for mission planning, organize information for future reference and briefing purposes, and integrate attached agencies into counterdrug operations.
Methamphetamine synthesis utilizes hazardous chemicals including irritants and neurotoxins. Aerosolized methamphetamine and associated toxic substances permeates surfaces, surrounding, even wood construction walls. Disposed waste includes corrosive and other hazardous materials. The capture, arrest, and transport of suspects and toxic materials can contaminate officers and their vehicles. Direct contact with these toxins produced symptoms such as reduced respiratory functions, headache, cough, eye and throat irritation, heartburn and acid reflux, skin rashes, and effects on the central nervous system.
This class is intended as an annual refresher for law enforcement personnel who have already been certified through a class that meets the requirements of OSHA 1910.120 (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response). Just as it is important to stay proficient in police tactics and firearms, clandestine lab investigators must stay proficient in chemical safety. In this class we review the relevant topics covered in a traditional 40-hour program, emphasizing current trends and safety topics critical to successfully processing methamphetamine labs.
This course is designed for law enforcement officers who are drug unit commanders or supervisors of drug investigation initiatives. The primary focus of the course is to provide the basic skills necessary to effectively manage drug investigations, develop policy and procedures, select and train drug investigators, and assess and manage risks associated with drug operations. In addition to this course you may also find our Mission Planning Course highly valuable. It’s offered online in both a self-paced and live format.
Conspiracies involving the activities of a complex criminal organization with numerous individuals and a variety of crimes are inherently difficult to investigate and successfully prosecute. This course is designed to provide an overview of the basic information needed to ensure prosecution. This course utilizes a practical “user” approach to deliver the subject matter. The course content includes an overview of conspiracy, legal aspects, and practical investigator insight and administrative/command issues. The course builds the student’s legal and investigative knowledge and introduces an approach to preparing a prosecutable conspiracy case.
This course is designed for the uniformed patrol officer or investigator who has had limited experience with street gangs. The course will acquaint the officer with the history and organization of gangs, legal definitions, gang identifiers (including colors, symbols, hand signs, graffiti, etc.), criminal activities, documentation, and officer safety.
This course presents an overview of the identification of current substances of abuse and the associated paraphernalia law enforcement officers will likely encounter in their duties. Drug scheduling, appearance, observable effects on the human body, methods of ingestion, possible medicinal and or cultural uses, slang terminology, cultivation, production, manufacture and distribution of the prevalent substances within the seven categories of drugs will be described. Officer safety issues for encountering users of these drugs is emphasized too.
Former FBI director Louis Freeh once stated, “We who enforce the law must not merely obey it. We have an obligation to set a moral example that those whom we protect can follow.” As we the 21st century is upon us, drug law enforcement officers are faced with many challenging decisions. These decisions impact public trust, upon which all aspects of law enforcement depend. This training will address these challenging situations, which can either cause destruction of personal worth and value to both family and agency, or establish true worth that enables officers to efficiently maintain order and to provide service to the community. Emphasis will be placed on decision-making skills, the consequences of ethical and unethical behavior, and the roles of moral development and personal character in the professional life of all law enforcement officers.
Introduction to Highway and Rural Drug Investigations
The focus of this course is on legal aspects concerning traffic stops, as well as training law enforcement officers in the techniques of roadside interviews to be used in traffic stops of suspected drug couriers. This course is also designed to train small-town law enforcement agencies in the newest trends of narcotics investigations and officer safety, the proper identification of rolling clandestine labs that may be present in rural areas, and assessment of potential suspects through knowledge of body language, eye patterns, and drug-induced characteristics and behaviors. Drug dealers are moving into smaller towns around the country for the purpose of conducting illegal drug activity, including trafficking, manufacturing, and distribution. There is also a growing incidence of long-time rural residents embarking on illegal drug activities. Small-town agencies will be introduced to new drug investigation trends and techniques. This course will train rural officers to identify signs of narcotic trafficking during vehicle stops, identify signs and methods of transporting narcotics, including chemical precursors, and the interpretation of a subject’s body language.
This unique course offers investigators insight into what a person is actually saying and, most importantly, what they are not saying. Studies show that while the majority of people do not lie, they instead choose to omit information. This is more commonly referred to as, “Lie by Omission and not by Commission.” In doing so, people display involuntary signs of nonverbal body language; they offer “evasive verbal responses” to direct bipolar questioning, and their written statements often identify areas that are sensitive to them. While the type of crime is inconsequential, what is important is that the person giving the information is affected by the same passions of guilt, stress, and psychological reasoning relating to their particular crime.
This course is designed to provide the law enforcement officer/deputy/investigator with the ability to recognize potential money laundering violations, both international and domestic, while investigating narcotics-related violations. The course will allow the student to apply techniques for financial interviewing, identifying sources of financial information, utilizing indirect methods of proving profitability in illegal enterprises, utilizing financial undercover operations, financial search warrants, and conducting money laundering investigations.
The Patrol Investigation Course is designed to teach law enforcement about working drug cases. This is not limited to just investigative techniques, but an overall aspect of the drug trade. There is more to being a well-rounded law enforcement officer/deputy/agent than just knowing the law. Law enforcement needs to know about drug trends and the reasons people use drugs.
We will also examine the citizen’s viewpoint versus the viewpoint of law enforcement. This will let us know what we need to do in order to work better together. Police officers need to know more about drugs to help with their investigations, so we will look into several different drugs.
This course will provide law enforcement, intelligence personnel, and analysts with information necessary to understand the intelligence cycle: direction, collection, processing, and dissemination; and the techniques used to organize and analyze data. In addition, training will also include federal laws applicable to the gathering of intelligence and its use.
This course will provide students with an understanding of the principles of basic surveillance techniques as they apply to the different types of surveillance performed by narcotics officers. During this presentation, the student will become acquainted with the various types and methods of surveillance, the purposes for conducting surveillance, the preparation of surveillance equipment, and the proper execution and documentation of surveillance operations. In the demonstration of basic surveillance techniques, the students will be shown how to apply the various principles discussed in class to actual surveillance situations, including a night time surveillance, via practical exercises and scenarios.
