 Human Factors: Surviving & Thriving in LE: October 4, 2017

Who should attend: Line officers, trainers, supervisors and administrators.  This material is critical for supervisors and administrators as it helps shape realistic expectations with regard to officer performance in high-risk and high-liability situations, as well as training requirements for high-risk skills.
Description: Situations of high stress in which the 'fight-or-flight response' is initiated can impact an officer's perceptions, misperceptions and decision-making abilities.  Using research-based, scientifically validated information coupled with case studies of contemporary real-world threats, critical incidents and experiences, we explore the specific effects of the body's fight-or-flight response, the effects of that response on our ability to perform and how the limitations of human observation and perception can negatively impact our readiness. 
Topics Covered include: Law enforcement performance expectations-fact v. fiction.
Development of a personal culture of officer safety and maximizing learning potential.
Threat assessment; contemporary dangers to LEO's.
Stress physiology.
The brain and its role in survival performance.
The autonomic nervous system; its branches and functions.
Recall and memory considerations in critical incidents.
Observation and perception and human limitations; improving awareness.
Reaction time; actinon v. reaction.
How to prime the central nervous system for performance.
Mindset and prevailing in survival-stress situations.

Human Trafficking Awareness:  September 14, 2017

 Per the National Human Trafficking Hotline:  "Human trafficking is a crime involving the exploitation of someone for the purposes of compelled labor or a commercial sex act through the use of force, fraud, or coercion.  Human trafficking affects individuals across the world, including here in the United States, and is commonly regarded as one of the most pressing human rights issues of our time.  Human trafficking affects every community in the United States across age, gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic backgrounds.  We often hear about it in news reports.  As hard as it might be to believe, it exists and it is here.  If you have a road running through your area, or if you have Internet access, you can be effected by this.  The goal of this training is to raise awareness of the problem, the laws involved, warning signs, issues when dealing with victims, and how to respond.  This issue has been considered so important that most health profession licensees will be required to indicate having had training in human trafficking during their next license renewal cycle.

Threat Focused Shooting: September 27, 2017 

 This style of training deals with a spontaneous shooting situation that occurs in close quarters, majority of the time within 3-7 yards, where most documented police shootings occur.  The basis for this program is taken from the teachings of Lt Col Rex Applegate and his program of Combat Point Shooting.  This program is a 'hands-on' training that utilizes "Airsoft" weapons which will be supplied for the training.  Force on Force training will also take place (See below required equipment).  No live fire-arms will  be allowed in the classroom!  Because of the nature of this training, currently certified firearms instructors will be given first preference for this course until September 6, 2017
