New Courses Now Available
- Handling Robbery Calls
According to an FBI study, 26% of all local homicides in the US can be directly related to robberies. Accordingly, law enforcement officers need to take every robbery call seriously, both for their own safety and the safety and well-being of the victims. Good community policing efforts will help officers identify the most likely robbery targets in their patrol area, giving them the opportunity to work with business owners and managers to minimize the risk. In this course, you will learn methods for safely approaching the robbery scene, apprehending suspects, and securing the crime scene.
- Interviews and Interrogations
Interviews and interrogations are two ways to formally solicit information from witnesses and suspects. A properly conducted interview or interrogation can often be the difference between solving and successfully prosecuting a case and not. An investigator should be aware of the distinctions between interviews and interrogations, as well as the best methods for eliciting information from a subject. In this course, learners will explore ways to question interviewees and judge the truthfulness of their responses. This course will also cover the distinctions between interviews and interrogations and provide methods for conducting them effectively.
- Court Security Officer -10999 (Texas only)
The purpose of the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) approved course for the Court Security Officer class is to give the court security officer a basic understanding of the threats associated with court settings as well as technology and techniques for court security operations in compliance with Government Sec. 158.002.
To qualify for a Court Security Certificate, an applicant must meet all proficiency requirements per Texas Administrative Code Title 37, Part 7, Chapter 221, as well as completion of course #10999.
- Generational Differences for Law Enforcement
Generational differences influence nearly every facet of your organization, from hiring and recruiting, dealing with change, training, retaining employees, and communication. How can your department better understand these differences and use them in a beneficial way? In this course, learners will examine the four most prominent generational workers, their core values, and how these come into play in the workplace.
- Civilian Interaction – 30418 (Texas only)
The Community Safety Education Act (SB30) was designed to educate both law enforcement and civilians of the expectations that drivers, the public, and students should have during contact between officers and motorists. In this course, we will review SB30 along with its updates, the Seven Step Violator Contact Method, the roles and responsibilities of officers during traffic stops, expected behavior from civilians, and even the laws surrounding visual or audio recording of traffic stops.
- Cryptocurrency Investigation 103: The Criminal Element
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are quickly becoming a legitimate means of payment in many countries. They offer a relatively fast, inexpensive, and anonymous system of conducting transactions as compared to more traditional financial means. The acceptance of these digital currencies in the mainstream financial system also means that criminals can now easily introduce funds into the legitimate economy with little possibility of identification. Recording these transactions, however, allows law enforcement to track and identify the networks and hubs the currency is flowing through. In this course, learners will examine the criminal element of cryptocurrency as well as how to identify and track the evidence left behind. This is the third course in the Cryptocurrency Investigation series.
- Cryptocurrency Investigation 104: The Dark Web
“The dark web is a side of the internet most people do not know exists. Criminals have found the dark web useful, creating and interacting with marketplaces they believe to be undetectable. These marketplaces typically function as a conduit for illicit activity, such as illegal drug trade, weapons trafficking, human trafficking, and others. As criminals become adept at utilizing technology, it becomes urgent and critical for law enforcement to understand the dark web. Illicit activity on the dark web is hard to track down and connect to a suspect. Understanding how dark web marketplaces and cryptocurrencies work together and translate into the physical world is crucial to being able to identify what evidence to look for when investigating criminal activity.”
- Cryptocurrency Investigation 105: Blockchain Forensics
In this final course of the Cryptocurrency Investigation series, we will discuss the concept of the Blockchain, a public distributed ledger that keeps track of digital currency transactions, as a dynamic and useful technology. Each coin has its own Blockchain, but the originating Blockchain is the Bitcoin Blockchain. It can be used by law enforcement and other industries in beneficial ways, but in the wrong hands, it can be exploited by criminal enterprises; this can be in a variety of illicit activities such as tax evasion, the distribution of child pornography, trading of illegal weapons, and the sale of narcotics. In this course, learners will be able to better understand the intricacies of Blockchain technology and explore analytical tools for investigating these crimes.
- Reducing Graffiti in Your Community
Graffiti, we’ve all seen it. It plagues our cities, leaving taxpayers and law enforcement to clean it up. Serial taggers deface public and private property, leaving law enforcement with the challenge of tracking and stopping these perpetrators. How do we identify and track these offenders? Some departments have graffiti specialists who track and identify common offenders and graffiti related to gangs, but there are additional resources and tools available. In this course, learn about the different types of graffiti, how to identify each type, resolve cases, and seek restitution.
