Course Description: Criminal Patrol Enforcement a function of many law enforcement officer’s normal duties is rarely taught at academies and in-service training. The course is designed to address the many issues that are encountered during traffic stops. This course will prepare officers to look beyond the initial traffic stop to detect and apprehend all types of criminals using our streets and rural roads.

The course will cover officer safety issues in great detail. Safety is a primary consideration during a vehicle stop. Almost any approach to a vehicle is potentially dangerous. What may seem like a standard traffic stop for a violation by the driver, may instead be a stop of a vehicle occupied by individuals who have committed or are in the process of committing a criminal act. It is estimated that four out of five crimes involve mobility. (Source: NHTSA) The officer’s intentions are a great concern to criminals caught in this situation. Their reaction, if any, to the stop is highly unpredictable. Past incidents, which are highly documented in the history of patrol functions, clearly demonstrate that there are inherent risks in traffic stops. The officer will be taught to think about having a personal defense strategy, to avoid injury and to stay alive.

This course also concentrates on improving the officer’s conversational and observational skills to facilitate the development of reasonable suspicion/probable cause. Of the many police activities that must be performed, the roadside interview truly approaches the category of an art. It takes talent, a natural inclination to perform the task well, study, and practice to develop the basic skills, as well as continual self-analysis and cultivation of talents and skills in the questioning process. The student will be shown how to adapt their own personality to the various situations and the personalities of the people whom they will encounter during the roadside interview process. Students will be taught how to develop a style that is distinctive and then how to improve it through studied experience. The course will show the student the importance of establishing rapport, as well as becoming a better listener. Students will be taught specific techniques that detect criminal activity and how to view every roadside interview in totality. Through the analyzing of actual traffic stop videos the students will be shown that no single behavior standing alone proves anything during the traffic stop encounter. The method of instruction for the course will involve the implementation of various video clips from traffic stops that are designed to show the teaching points and encourage class discussion

The student will be taught how to identify and locate manual, electronically controlled aftermarket compartments in motor vehicles that are widely used today by drug trafficking organizations.

Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will have an in-depth knowledge of the proper working techniques of Criminal Patrol Enforcement.
