  3. Participate in practical exercises designed to illustrate various situations an officer experiences while on duty.

Topics that will be covered will include, but are not limited to:

  • Hiring/training
    Police Ethics
    Crisis Negotiations
    Digital Forensics
    DWI Investigations
    Use of Force
    Traffic Stops
    Criminal Investigations
    SWAT
