 Human Trafficking Awareness:  April 25, 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.

STOPS Strategies & Tactics of Patrol Stops Instructor & Re-Cert:  April 3-6, 2017
Pro Train will be certifying officers in your area in ourproven officer survival system. There are nearly 4500 STOPS Instructors throughout the United States. Officers completing this course will be certified to INSTRUCT officers in the STOPS officer survival program. Upon completion of the STOPS program your officers will be able to SAFELY execute vehicle stops, pedestrian contacts, commercial vehicle stops, vehicle extractions, drug interdiction stops, and high risk (felony) stops. Officers will be trained in risk assessments, andproven methods to counter both felonious and accidental assaults. Vehicle stops will be broken into 12 ambush zones for the officer to be aware of, and escape techniques to counter and defeat any type of assault. The STOPS program is based upon research from officers that have been injured or killed in the line of duty. We then developed strategies and tactics that countered the assaults, which will greatly increase the officers survival probability. The STOPS program is nationally and internationally recognized as the leading program in tactical/officer survival training available.  Vehicle stops will be divided into low risk, unknown risk, and high risk. Each category haspre-planned options to minimize the chances of being assaulted by both accidental and felonious means. One of the goals is for the officers to always be thinking about the safest way to deal with every situation, and for the officer to recognize the danger cues. If an assault occurs our students will dominate through superior training and a warrior mindset.   

 
The STOPS program is currently instructed at police academies nationwide as THE safest way to conduct traffic stops. If an officer is expected to conduct traffic stops, he/she should at least be trained how to conduct them safely. Our motto says it all "STOPS SAVES COPS"! 
 
STOPS training is realistic and extremely dynamic with both classroom and dynamic field exercises. These classes will also include our bonus simunitions force on force training, and our tactical live fire course.
 
The cost of this Instructor level certification course is only $515. Instructors will then be certified to teach the STOPS Officers Survival System for 36 months.  The STOPS Instructors Re certification will take place on April 3-6, 2017, and only costs $315.
