R2 123 LE Phlebotomy Course – CWI classroom December 2021

Course Number: R2 123

Description:   Law Enforcement Phlebotomy

Commissioned officers will be trained to draw blood on impaired drivers.  The Law Enforcement Phlebotomy Program (LEPP) training is an important part of the impaired driving program.  While waiting for an individual or organization to respond to draw blood, vital evidence is slipping away.  The LEPP is one way to gather evidence in a timely fashion that may otherwise be lost.

The LEPP is based on the very successful model used in Arizona for over 25 years now. 

We offer this training in conjunction with CWI’s Phlebotomy program.  the schedule is as follows:

–  48 hours of on-line pre-course work starting October 3rd

R2 Basic Crime Scene Investigation – Meridian

Course Number: 114

Fundamentals of CSI Course Flyer

Daily Class Schedule

Course Description:

Crime scenes related to illegal narcotics present unique issues for investigators. Because drug crime scenes could potentially lead to transnational narco-terrorism investigations, specific drug-related crime scene investigation training is essential. Expectations of the public and the courts have risen dramatically over the last several years in the area of physical evidence collection. Working a drug-related crime scene is a process that involves a broad range of skill sets with a heavy emphasis on intelligence analysis, evidence collection, and an understanding of the laboratory analyst’s capabilities. Evidence collection and chain of custody are essential to building a case for the successful prosecution of transnational drug trafficking organizations.

The purpose of this course is to train law enforcement personnel, especially counternarcotics officers with the skills needed to locate, identify, document, collect and preserve any crime scene evidence with an emphasis on drug-related evidence. Drug related cases can also lead to other crimes such as thefts, robberies, arson, shootings and even homicides. Upon completion of this training, the student will possess the fundamental skills necessary to process any crime scene and collect a variety of different types of physical evidence, and in particular, drug-related crime scenes.

R4 Crime Scene Awareness for First Responders- Pocatello

Course Number: R4114

Course Description:

Our program teaches the importance of forensic identifiers and the procedures for processing and applying these identifiers to the department’s information database and methods to protect the chain of evidence.

Exploitation involves the immediate collection, prioritization of items of potential evidence value and recording the information. This program will familiarize the student with the ability to properly process a site for evidence value without contaminating or destroying important information. They will understand the different formats of reports and how they are dictated for courtroom testimony and directives based on the student’s departmental protocols. They will learn how to process, log, categorize, and exploit gained information to the best of their abilities in support of the criminal case and how to pass it through the chain of command to the appropriate level for inclusion into case file and intelligence records.

Crime Scene Awareness training is designed to give the 1st responder the ability to recognize, identify and preserve evidence at any scene and the surrounding environment where a crime has been committed. The student will learn the proper procedures to protect crime scenes by observing, analyzing, and understanding indicators left by nature and human activity.

This course was developed as a training program that gives the student the ability to increase their evidence identification & collection skills with up to an 80% increase in effectiveness. It enhances performance in observation skills and situational awareness. The foundation of the course centers on teaching the students various forms of visual recognition skills used to observe, locate, and interpret crime scenes.

Since humans by nature tend to follow predictable patterns of behavior, these signatures can be readily identified and exploited by the keen observer. Being able to apply this knowledge while assessing crime scenes will give students the ability to accurately identify actions, intentions, and motives of suspects.
