The Street Smart Cop/Pro-Active Patrol Tactics (2 Day Course)

The foundational course Street Cop Training was built on. Taken by over 10,000 law enforcement officers it has been regarded as the best course ever created for police officers. We have spent almost 20 years of collective information and fine tuning it to create a training experience like no other. Humorous, exciting, and extremely valuable, this course is designed to be enjoyed by every division and every rank. We will cover the case law every cop needs to know, specific to the state in which it’s taught. The exposure to this kind of knowledge is a MUST have in today’s modern policing. We can no longer afford to guess what to do next. Re-Active or Pro-Active, officers must know how to behave in a manner that is constitutionally compliant. We teach cases that not only give the student understanding but also raise their confidence. This will put an end to common police misconceptions and muster room debates. We supply facts and provide where it says what we teach and advocate.

We continue beyond case law into pro-active policing and how to be an effective police officer. The student will be privy to watching strategically edited police videos in a way that breaks down the indicators of criminal behavior. This is the perfect course for anyone looking to take their policing to the next level or looking to polish your existing abilities as an effective police officer. This course has been deemed so vital for police officers that several agencies have sent all their sworn personnel. Some have even added it as a pre-requisite to completing their field-training program. This course is not just for the proactive officers, as it provides essential information all LEO’s must know. It is extremely dangerous for police officers to be in the presence of criminal activity without being aware of it. Save yourself from embarrassment. Save your life. Save the life of another.

Broadly covered topics will include; identity deception/uncovering the truth; reactions to police presence when engaged in criminal conduct; key phrases of deception; body language and nervous behavior; distinguishing illegal police conduct from legal police conduct; current crime trends; motor vehicle law that you should know; exposure to hidden compartments/hides; and Officer Safety/Tactics that will save your life. Previous attendees report back with great results far beyond what we ever expected this training to accomplish. Our students have stopped a broad range of crimes from being committed and have apprehended some of the most dangerous criminals in the country. Do not miss this career changing training.

Traffic Incident Management

Traffic incident management is the process of coordinating the resources of a number of different public and private sector partners to detect, respond to, and clear traffic incidents as quickly as possible to reduce the duration and impacts of incidents, while protecting the safety of on-scene responders and the traveling public.

The training addresses all aspects of incident response, from the moment the first emergency call is made to the correct positioning of response vehicles and equipment, to a safe work area using traffic control devices, to final scene clearance.

The four-hour, in-person training brings police, firefighters, DOT, towing, medical personnel, and other incident responders together to foster relationships and engage in interactive training. They learn how to work together in a coordinated manner, from the moment the first emergency call is made to final scene clearance.
