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 Adaptive Decision-Making for Law Enforcement- Salmon

Course Number: R4111C

Course Description:

Who should attend:
Sworn officers who want to improve their emotion intelligence and decision-making skills.

Description:
The law enforcement environment can often be described as one that is a non-linear, open-loop system, that happens at light-speed. One where time can be either friend or foe. Operating in this environment creates stress which affects decision-making. Within this time-compressed environment officers often feel they need to act because they are there, rather than allowing the circumstances of a call determine the urgency to act.

The question is how to provide a strategy for officer’s to effectively control the stress response and to make lawful and ethical decisions? The answer is two-fold: with 1) Emotional Intelligence and 2) the use of thinking and mental models.

Emotional Intelligence helps in reducing the stress caused by non-linear, uncertain events. Being able to regulate emotions allows officers to make better decisions. The use of thinking and mental models (OODA, Cynefin, Adaptive Decision-making model) assists the officer in their sensemaking and decision-making capabilities. Students are taught to make decisions based on urgency or the need to take an action and within the Constitutional framework of the 4th Amendment. These components are a great compliment to any de-escalation strategy.

You will leave this class as a stronger officer by learning:

✒ How Emotional Intelligence creates resilient, compassionate and respectful police officers. ✒ The Adaptive Decision-making Model.
✒ How mental models help or hinder the decision-making process.
✒ The Cynefin Sensemaking Model.
✒ How a spectrum strategy assists in managing time.
✒ Understand the role bias plays in decision-making.

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.
