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.

R4 Officer Involved Shooting and Use of Force Investigations- Idaho Falls COURSE FULL REGISTRATION CLOSED

Course Number: R4228F

Course Description:

Law enforcement officers are the only government officials entrusted with the legal ability—and sometimes the duty—to exercise deadly force against members of our own populace with a split-second, judgement-based decision. But, with that power comes great responsibility to our citizens to ensure that any such use of force was justified and reasonable under the circumstances. Without transparency and thorough investigation, the relationships we have with our communities suffer and our legitimacy as a police agency is called into question. Not only will the involved officers’ actions be publicly scrutinized, but your investigation of those actions will be equally challenged if it is not professional, unbiased and fair to all parties involved. Public trust versus unrest, civil litigation, departmental reputation and the very freedom or incarceration of those involved hinge on the competency and thoroughness of the subsequent criminal and administrative investigations.

It is the purpose of this in-depth course to examine the investigative best practices for the modern world, providing a standardized and systematic approach to use-of-force investigations. An investigative model specific to use-of-force and officer-involved shooting incidents is presented, including example checklists, templates, forms, reports and policies that can be put to immediate use by your agency. The information presented is current and relevant to today’s technological advances and political climate, including instruction on the implications of social media; analysis of video recordings (body and dash cam, cell phone, surveillance, etc.); managing media and public relation concerns; legal considerations; crime scene processing and reconstruction; and the benefits of incorporating 3D scans and overhead drone footage to visually present the findings of your investigation to all interested parties in a manner more easily understood. At the conclusion of this training, attendees will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to appropriately investigate and document any use-of-force incident, including those resulting in serious bodily injury or death.

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.

R4 Force Response Liability Prevention – Idaho Falls

Course Number: R4 257

Description: Force Response Liability Prevention – Idaho Falls

Updated to meet the current needs of today’s policing.

How do you take a dry subject like “civil liability prevention and mitigation,” as well as often unrealistic “de-escalation strategies,” and make every topic unerringly relevant, interesting, often humorous and–more importantly–instantly applicable to you and your officers?  We do it in a training course that is routinely one of the highest rated seminars of its type.  Our two most common evaluation comments are, “Should be taught in the academy,” and, “Every officer should attend this training.”

In an era of increased likelihood of being named a defendant, decreased budgets, and motivated legal professionals who are trained and focused on winning in police litigation cases, you and your officers need the cutting edge concepts of liability prevention and mitigation this training seminar offers.

This course assists your officers in:

  • Achieving proper conduct in the force response through increased knowledge of the laws of force (both federal and your state law) and their ability to articulate their reasonable actions.
  • Achieving practical de-escalation goals while remaining able to respond with force when suspect behavior requires it.
  • Articulating and justifying proper conduct through the reporting and documentation of their actions.

The “Force Response Liability Prevention” course provides every officer with the means of understanding the limits of force, and to articulate their actions in a reasonable force event to a degree most have never experienced. We give them the training that allows them to confidently explain their reasonable force employment in the field. This course provides comprehensive reporting standards and suggestions in an ultimately useful manner that really does effect change in the reporting habits of officers.

Why this course?  It was developed with direct input and assistance of the top police civil defense attorneys and police risk managers in the nation–dedicated professionals who work full-time to defend you and your officers in federal and state courts against allegations of constitutional or negligent misconduct by officers.

CUTTING EDGE TRAINING asked them a simple question:

“What do you want your defendant officers to know BEFORE they take the stand in Federal Court?”

This is the information the professionals who defend you want you to know!

Course Content:

  • Current Plaintiff’s Threats
  • Practical and Defensible De-escalation.
  • Constitutional Limits to the Police Force Response
  • Force Response Documentation
  • Current Force Response Reporting Requirements
  • Articulating Your Force Response
