Over 15% of the United States workforce has self-reported being under the influence of alcohol in the workplace at least once in the last year, according to according to the National Institutes of Health. Add prescription drugs, illegal drugs and other impairing substances to the mix—particularly in light of nationwide legalization and decriminalization of certain drugs—and it seems only reasonable to suspect that this trend will rise.

The role of today's School Resource Officer is a vitally important and complicated one.  Research has indicated that SROs see themselves as are far more than agents of law enforcement in schools.  In addition to their law enforcement duties, SROs have often described their role as that of a social worker, an educator, and mentor to students.

Five-day first-line supervisory course critical for both new and experienced public safety supervisors committed to leading from the front.

No public safety organization can function without well trained first-line leaders. The first-line supervisor is the most influential position within the organization. Their role, therefore, demands strong leadership, self-confidence, competence, management skills, and an understanding of how to influence their subordinates, the organization, and the community.

A promotion to a supervisory position is an invitation to enter the world of personnel management. This course will provide attendees with the knowledge necessary to recognize the most common and costly personnel liability issues confronting supervisors in public safety.

Far too many supervisors are learning about these challenges through the process of trial and error—at great expense to the agencies and themselves. In this course, federal and state statutes and case law will be utilized to illustrate the potential pitfalls of employee relations in public safety administration and the means by which those liability risks can be managed.

This course is designed to prepare public safety supervisors to take preventative steps to limit supervisor liability, maintain organizational standards and protect employee rights under the law.

This is a comprehensive course on how to investigate homicides and other suspicious deaths. Through the use of classroom lectures, video segments, photographs, case study exercises, and hands-on practical exercises, attendees will be provided with a thorough education in the specific techniques involved in these types of investigations. Taught by instructors with extensive backgrounds in death investigations, this course will cover such topics as initial response and securing the scene, crime scene search methods, obtaining search warrants, identifying and preserving forensic evidence, witness interviews, suspect interrogations, report writing, and testifying. The course will also discuss suicides, death investigations involving children, and the capabilities of forensic evidence analysis. Throughout this course an emphasis is placed on protecting constitutional rights, seeking the truth, avoiding false confessions, and respecting the victim’s family. This course is intentionally designed for law enforcement officers from all sizes of agencies that might be tasked with a death investigation.

This course introduces law enforcement personnel to effective, evidence-based strategies for policing domestic violence in a way that improves officer safety, increases victim safety, and seeks offender accountability regarding crimes of intimate partner violence. Using empirical research findings as a foundation, this course will expose officers to four types of intimate partner violence batterers. The course will reveal how each batterer type developed differently responds differently to criminal justice interventions. It will discuss what evidence-based actions officers can take to increase the likelihood the victim will cooperate with the prosecution process and leave the relationship for good. It will reveal the factors that increase the likelihood an officer will be assaulted at the scene, and the factors correlated with officer survival of assaults at these calls. It will address how to use information and physical evidence to help determine which party was the primary aggressor. Finally, it will discuss how to present documentation of the incident in a manner that best increases the chances for prosecution and conviction. This course is appropriate for any law enforcement personnel, including probation officers and prosecutors, who deal with cases of intimate partner violence.

In law enforcement agencies across the country, there is a natural tendency not to address the signs of police misconduct and personal distress until they reach a critical point—meaning that the professional and personal unraveling of officers is on display for the media, public trust is negatively affected and severe officer discipline, termination or other self-destructive officer outcomes are inevitable. It is vital that agencies break this pattern and embrace pro-active hiring initiatives and early intervention as a method of minimizing the damage ultimately done to officer safety, public safety and officers’ livelihoods when cumulative issues—left untreated—rise to the level of crisis.

Today’s increased service demands and the scrutiny placed upon public safety professionals have resulted in a growing need to master verbal conflict management skills. When negative verbal encounters escalate to the point where physical intervention is used, criticism often results when it is later discovered that there is little evidence of verbal de-escalation techniques employed by officers. This is particularly true when incident video and audio reviews are utilized. In some cases, it has become clear that the verbal actions of the public safety responders served to escalate the situation. Administrators are now asking, “Is this an area in which the training tape has run out? Have we adequately trained our personnel to successfully manage and respond to verbal confrontations in a professional manner?"
