(01-317) Safety Awareness XI: Immediate Action-Rapid Deployment for Patrol Officers (6 hours)

   It is not unusual for a tactical team to arrive at the scene of a barricaded incident and find that patrol personnel have contained the suspect within a secure perimeter. There is generally time for the tactical team to deploy their personnel without serious concern of suspect escape. Once the incident has been isolated, time enables patrol and/or tactical personnel to formulate a structured and deliberate plan.

   But, there are also scenarios that require immediate action and rapid deployment of patrol personnel prior to the arrival of the tactical team. In these cases delayed deployment could have catastrophic consequences. These scenarios often involve an ongoing ''shots fired'' or ''downed officer/citizen rescue.'' The situation may also necessitate the immediate and rapid deployment of law enforcement personnel to contain and prevent the escape of an armed and dangerous person.

   Tuition Rate Per Officer: $24.00

(01-511) Equality in Policing the Community (6 hours)

   The Commission's Leadership and Integrity in the Police Environment course looked at the issues of communication, courtesy and decision-making; skills critical to survival and success in the milieu of policing. Equality in Policing the Community takes the development of these three basic skills to the next level adding the factor of sensitivity to the equation as it relates to interaction between the police and the community. The well publicized issue of racial profiling will be addressed from the opinion that the practice of racial profiling itself contradicts the oath sworn to, is in conflict with the intent of policing, and impacts negatively on police profession. The practice can also encourage other negative behaviors by officers.

   Tuition Rate Per Officer: $24.00
