R4 Detect, Deter, Defeat Human Behavior Threat Analysis- Pocatello

Course Number: R4139

Course Description:

Detect – Human Behavior Analysis is a method of observing people and accurately predicting what their next course of action will be. Social Science has concluded that human behavior can be quite predictable, and it gives the bearer an ability to influence actions and reactions at all levels of public contact. Wouldn’t it be beneficial for the officer to know ahead of time if encounters are going to result in malice or harm toward them? This program teaches the officer to recognize behavior cues that improve their ability to make accurate assumptions about an individual’s thought process, emotional state and plans of action. It also allows an officer to detect individuals who are being deceptive and assist in locating criminals attempting to hide in crowds.

Deter – Human behavior analysis allows an officer to effectively spot dangerous individuals and defuse potential problems before they ever get out of the box. They can also use this information to assist in de-escalating tensions, avoiding potential violent confrontations and maintain stability of volatile situations or hostile scenes. Officers will be able to identify those who consider them as a threat and those who consider them as non-threatening. They will be able to identify the differences between a person who is angry, distraught, mentally disturbed, highly emotional, or whether that person has intentions of malice and harm.

Defeat – How much safer and more effective would an officer be if he or she had the ability to know what a person’s intent is before that action takes place? Being able to observe and understand human behavior indicators gives the officer an ability to better control any deteriorating situation and produce a more favorable and nonviolent outcome. This program teaches the officer methods and actions to diffuse hostilities and defend themselves without resulting in conflict or violence.

Course Number: 144B

Description:

Winning Mind for Women 2022 Boise

 “The Winning Mind for Women” is one of the most unique and popular courses offered in the market today. Veteran instructor Sgt. Betsy Smith (ret.), the creator of the original “Street Survival for Women,” guides students through 7 hours of intensive, interactive training that will provide attendees with updates and information they can employ to improve and enhance both their professional and personal lives.

We begin each session by honoring the sacrifices of our fallen, celebrating the law enforcement profession and asking each attendee to inwardly assess their own career. We define a true “Winning Mindset” as we talk about the history of women in policing and celebrate our winners and role models. We then introduce gender-specific science and leadership principles that anyone can use to enhance their career and improve their life on and off the job. The multi-media format keeps students engaged and entertained while we provide officers, agents, dispatchers, trainers, supervisors, managers and all other personnel with a realistic view of gender differences and how these can be harnessed in both men and women to improve performance, morale, communication, relationships, and especially officer safety.

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 Surviving Violent Street Encounters- Idaho Falls CANCELLED LACK OF REGISTRATIONS

Course Number: R4139

Course Description:

This 16-hour seminar is designed to prepare law enforcement officers for violent encounters and threats. The instructors will discuss techniques that control stress responses so de-escalation strategies can be effectively applied. The seminar will not only deal with the latest research on how threats impact psychological and physiological responses, but will explore ancient survival traditions and why these traditions are relevant today. Case studies with audio and video recordings will be used to illustrate principles.

At the end of this program, students will:

  • Understand and recognize the physiological and psychological changes that occur when a person is suddenly threatened.
  • Understand how these psychological and physiological changes affect performance and the ability to survive.
  • Understand how physical training, mental imagery, tactical self-talk, breathing and centering improve stress inoculation, startle recovery and the ability to apply de-escalation techniques.
  • Understand how experiencing a sudden stressful situation can lead to a “high”, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Post Traumatic Growth.

The instructors, Charles Holt, Laura Russell and William Hladky, are retired Miami-Dade Police Officers with more than 80 years of combined experience. They bring a rare perspective to the class. Each instructor has been involved in deadly force encounters with armed attackers. Additionally, Detective Russell was shot while attempting to arrest a subject and Detective Holt was stabbed while detaining a mentally disturbed subject. These and other experiences give the instructors unparalleled credibility.
