Reality Training: Reacting to unpredictable suspects


 

WHAT NOW? The Aftermath of a Critical Incident (Amarillo)
Wednesday – October 29, 2014 (8am – 12noon)

TUITION:
 FREE

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
TCOLE # 57020: Officers are trained daily on the tactical and safety aspects of surviving a critical incident. But what happens after the incident is over? And though the officer has survived, what if someone else has suffered death or injury? The actions taken by an officer after a critical incident can determine the future of the officer’s career, financial security and even their liberty. Especially in a world that second guesses and litigates the critical decisions made by officers in the line of duty. This class will prepare officers to meet the challenges associated with post critical incident administrative and criminal investigations.  The first part of the class will focus on the administrative and internal investigation process, what to expect when an officer is being investigated, and discussion of the officer’s rights during an investigation. The second part of the class is a step by step discussion of aftermath of a critical incident, when a law enforcement action turns into a criminal investigation and the officer is the suspect. Officers are told what to expect when facing a critical incident investigation, what to do and not to do, what to expect from investigators, the DA, other officers, the most importantly, the officer’s own attorney.

Texas law requires that officers receive training relating to employment issues, including civil service; complaints and investigations of employee misconduct; and disciplinary actions and the appeal of disciplinary actions (Section 1701.402(b), Occupations Code).  This class meets those requirements.

TCOLE CREDIT: Officers will receive 4-hours credit from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (Now TCOLE)

Students will learn the Truths of the Human Animal and the Principles of Interaction in order to successfully deal with victims, suspects, criminals and even fellow officers.
  • Winning on the Street -The vast majority of attacks on officers begin with the communication process. To win on the street officers must be proficient at understanding the words and reading the body of those determined to do them harm. Multiple case studies and videos of actual attacks on officers will be reviewed to better detect pre-attack indicators and deceptive behavior as well as enhance their ability to de-escalate many situations.
  • Recognize and Correct Communication Weaknesses – In order to build rapport and avoid citizen complaints officers must first understand what motivates people. With this understanding officers can recognize their weaknesses and immediately improve their communication styles.

Day 1 (Thursday) Ethics and Leadership:

Expanding on the concepts taught in his highly acclaimed “Finding the Leader in You” class, in this custom CLEAT class, Jim will focus on keys issues of leadership and ethics facing law enforcement officers today.  During this dynamic and entertaining seminar participants will discuss and learn about the following:
