Having a problem isn’t the worst thing. The worst thing is having a problem and no plan to fix it…

R4 Blue Line Support Seminar- Idaho Falls FREE

SupervisionCourse Number: R4236

Course Description:

We have an amazing group of speakers with over 385 years of law enforcement experience (including four Medal of Valor recipients). Five of them have been shot in the line of duty.

We address the topics that are relevant to the world of law enforcement, with the sole purpose of encouraging the officer. The end result we hope for is the well-being of the officers, with the result that they can be the servant and protector the community needs.

SUICIDE PREVENTION

It is no secret that many active and retired officers have taken their life in the last few years. In 2019, over 230 officers (active and retired) did so. In 2020, that number is slightly above 150. Several officers on our team have contemplated suicide – and found a way out. You can go to our video section and listen to their testimony.

PTSD

PTSD has affected soldiers on the battlefield as well as the cops on the street. Several of our speakers have experienced this traumatic condition – but found a way out. Put simply, it is next to impossible to have a lengthy career as a police officer and not be affected by various scenes the officer witnesses. Five of our team members have been shot. Each recovered.

FAMILY LIFE

No one is sure just how many officers go through divorce. But we are sure of this: married life can be very stressful! Our team knows a thing or two about marriage. Combined, they have been married over 300 years. Some of our team members have also experienced the pain of divorce. Truth be told, married life has as much stress as police work (if not more!).

RESILIENCE

Resilience: the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties: mental toughness. These are absolute “musts” if one is to survive a police career. Some of our team members are “specialists” in this subject, and have shared their expertise with officers around the country in various training settings.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

We are convinced that involvement in the community in which the officer serves is an absolute must. That is not to say that we think the officer should live in his community. But it does mean that whatever community (“district”) the officer is assigned to is somewhere that he/she needs to serve wholeheartedly. Tyrone Dennis, former Atlanta Police Officer, did just that. Tyrone shares his story (and a few others do likewise). The goal is obvious: create good relations between police and community.

STRESS

This is a no-brainer! Lots of cops (and the rest of the word) are quite stressed these days. Some of those stressors can be removed: while others cannot – and must be confronted. We are convinced that the secret to dealing with stress is to become the kind of person that can withstand stress – and not be destroyed by it. There are stressors in life that will NEVER go away: but they need not destroy us.

VERBAL DE-ESCALATION

One of the greatest needs amongst law enforcement is improving their skills of verbal de-escalation. This is the one skill that an officer will use more than any other. Learning to stay calm, and helping others do likewise, is a priceless treasure. We want to share techniques that will help the officer do just that. One of our presenters (a Medal of Valor recipient) spent 32 years in the traffic division. He learned a thing or two about verbal de-escalation.

R4 Walking the Narrow Road of Leadership- Rexburg FREE COURSE

Course Number: R4800

Course Description:

The law enforcement profession is continuing to face significant challenges in its operational and organizational roles.  Unfortunately, one of the more pressing issues facing law enforcement agencies may be the failure of its supervisors and managers to consistently practice recognized leadership principles that they learn in management training programs. Most supervisors and managers seem to take the “path of least resistance” when dealing with problem employees or in communicating with employees.  This “wide road of mediocrity” is believed to be the primary path of most managers and these leadership failures have become a significant form of stress and frustration for the law enforcement culture.

This program examines why these problems occur, and the practical methods that managers and supervisors can use to become effective leaders and walk the narrow road of leadership excellence – both at work and at home.

Dates: June 16, 2021

Times: 0800-1200

Credit Hours: 4

Location: Madison High School, 2300 University Blvd., Rexburg, ID 83440

Cost: FREE

R4 Developing Effective Leaders- Idaho Falls

Course Number: R4805

Course Description:

Who Should Attend?

This sixteen (16) hours block of training is for professionals who have been recently promoted or want to be in a leadership role in their profession: Senior officers, Sergeants, Lieutenants, Captains, SROs, FTOs, SWAT, K9, officers on leadership track, probation, parole, and correction professionals

Course Description:

In a recent study by the Society of Human Research Management (SHRM), they discovered that individuals who were recently promoted to a leadership role faced three primary challenges. First, the newly appointed leader found it difficult to find his or her leader’s mindset. Second, new leaders often found it difficult to lead individuals they once worked side-by-side with. Finally, new leaders found it difficult to identify and bridge their own skill gaps.

“Developing Effective Leaders” will address these challenges. This is an informative training that was designed to be beneficial to those law enforcement professionals who are new to their leadership role and a refresher for those professionals who are veteran leaders. This training was designed to be the foundational building blocks for professionals who want to develop into effective and ethical leaders. The training will cover five primary modules: Leadership versus Management, Leadership, Power and Leadership, Effective Leaders, and Leadership Styles.

Leadership is influence. Each of us has the power of influence. Becoming a leader you must recognize the potential in others, not to mention yourself. Accepting a new leadership position can be the most demanding and yet receive the least training. It is Mike’s hope to share some innovative ideas to help in day-to-day operations from the supervisors role in a vehicle pursuit, to making critical decisions at the crime scene. In the spirit of Community Policing, it is important that we decipher the mission and vision of the organization and the real time impact it has on future leadership.

Mission and Vision Statement: During this period, we will discuss the importance of knowing your mission and vision for your organization. It is imperative that each employee has a working knowledge of their role and the impact on the mission of the department. It starts with having a keen understanding of your current job function.

During this period, we will discuss the COMPSTAT program and how it relates to Accountability. In addition, we will discuss what it takes to be an effective critical decision maker and taking responsibility for those decisions.

Media Relations: Your organization is only one case away from CNN broadcasting, “Live” from your city. During this period, we will discuss the importance of each level of leadership becoming aware of the pitfalls of dealing with the media.

Real Time Leadership: In today’s world the need to have things instantaneous has caused a shift in leading as it relates to business. Critical issues involving day-to-day operations will cause leaders to speed up the learning curve in order to tackle these tough issues. During this period, we will discuss maintaining a positive work environment in which the truth can be told, core competencies of a leader, work assignments, and rotating personnel and transfers.
