The fourth amendment is one of the most widely-discussed amendments in the news today. This course will provide the learner a greater understanding of a frisk, suspicious activity, probable cause, consent to search, search warrants, and other areas that are directly related to arrest, search, and seizure. The students will also be provided with information to provide a greater understanding of juvenile offenses, dealing with juvenile offenders and organized juvenile criminal activity.
- Intermediate Asset Forfeiture
As law enforcement, we can utilize asset forfeiture to seize property that we believe can or will be used in a crime. This policy provides added security and aids in the prevention of further crime. It takes contraband and property out of the hands of people who have or intend to commit crime. However, it is a double-edged sword in that sometimes assets can be taken from innocent citizens. In this course, you will examine the policy, benefits, and consequences that can come from asset forfeiture.
- Intermediate Child Abuse
No single agency has the training, workforce, resources, or legal mandate to detect, intervene, and prosecute child abuse cases effectively. And no one agency has the sole responsibility for protecting abused children. Law enforcement must, however, be properly trained on the various components of child abuse cases. This intermediate course includes topics about what does and does not constitute child abuse and neglect, how to identify the different kinds of child abuse, the identification of the authorities and responsibilities of many individuals and agencies in child abuse cases, components and characteristics of child abuse, investigate strategies, and special investigative issues.
- Intermediate Child Safety Check Alert List
This one-hour course recognizes the Child Safety Check Alert List Plan as a vital tool to child abuse or neglect cases.
- Intermediate Cultural Diversity
With the demographic makeup of the United States changing dramatically over the last 25 years, law enforcement, now more than ever, must possess the cultural competency to encourage positive communication and enhance productivity in the workplace. By taking this intermediate course, the learner will examine the factors that make up our individual cultures and the ways by which culture and law enforcement can merge.

- Intermediate Identity Crimes
The prevalence of identity theft crimes have risen significantly, largely due to the advancements in technology in recent years. It’s even more important now, that we learn about this type of criminal activity and how to combat it–which will in turn allow us to catch these criminals and create safer communities. In this course, learners will understand how identity theft crimes can happen, how people can protect themselves, and what to do in the event of someone’s identity being stolen.
- Intermediate Missing and Exploited Children
This 4 hour course is designed to educate officers on missing and abducted children cases. These type of cases are difficult because they are time-sensitive and emotionally troubling.
- Intermediate Racial Profiling
Racial profiling, the practice of using race or ethnicity as a basis for law enforcement investigative procedures. The purpose of this course is to highlight key issues surrounding race in law enforcement and to help law enforcement officers use this information in a meaningful and practical way. This course shares how racial profiling can impact the success of policing efforts. It also presents key distinctions between reasonable suspicion and racial profiling during field interviews and traffic stops, shares best practices for law enforcement officers, and offers self-analysis for practical application. This course also brings awareness and understanding of how the blueprint was designed to provide law enforcement, state and local elected officials, civil rights leaders, community organizations, and other local stakeholders with strategies and practices for gathering and analyzing data about police stops.
- Intermediate Special Investigative Topics
While recent news stories and events have made strides in the stigma against reporting abuse, issues like child abuse, neglect, family violence, sexual assault, and sex offenders are still very prevalent in our country today. We will walk through these issues in detail, and provide the learner with relevant laws and statistics surrounding each individual topic.
- Intermediate Use of Force
According to the National Institute of Justice, generally speaking, the use of force by law enforcement officers becomes necessary and is permitted under specific circumstances such as: in self-defense or in defense of another individual or group.Police officers receive guidance from their individual agencies, but there is no universal set of rules that governs when officers use force and how much they should use. In this TCOLE Intermediate course, learners are provided with training and focuses on the legal aspects for an officer to use force when affecting an arrest, investigatory stop, or other seizure of a free citizen as well as the Texas laws and policies that govern legal use of force.
