Combat Thinking for Law Enforcement OfficersThis 3 hour seminar packs 4 powerful presentations in one – by Chuck Dahlinger  Read More About Chuck…
Combat survival via preparation is something that LEOs should keep in mind.  Preparedness on so many levels can be a successful factor in surviving tragic incidents.  Officers must develop a combat mindset – a desire and willingness to do whatever it takes to come out on top. We all have a duty to encourage and support one another through such difficult times.  Encouragement among peers can remind us of the dangerous business we are faced with.

FTO on the Witness Stand – Bob Christie of Christie Law Group
Imagine sitting on the witness stand trying to defend your DORs, when your only intent was to use “motivational grading” or giving your S/O the “sympathetic 4’s” only to find out YOU are the one on trial.  Bob Christie’s class on Defensible Documentation will help you understand what and how you should be documenting the performance of your student officer, and NOT your perceptions.  Read More about Bob Christie…

Managing the FTO Unit – Dan Greene, AZNAFTO

Contagious shooting – what is it – Los Angeles Police Department
A contagious shooting is a sociological phenomenon observed in military and police personnel in the United States, in which one person firing on a target can induce others to begin shooting. Often the subsequent shooters will not know why they are firing.  LAPD will present a short class which will deal the need to recognize the need for Command and Control during these potential volatile situations.

Below 100 – WANAFTO
In the line of duty deaths has not been below 100 since 1944.  This seminar will to instill a culture of change in work behavior that can reduce in the line of duty deaths.  Most importantly challenging the FTO to instill this behavior change with new officers in training.

Firearms & Documentation – WANAFTO
Did your Student Officer qualify at the range? If so, what was his/her score? Was any remedial training required?  How many FTOs know how well their S/Os can shoot?  Have they qualified with the shotgun? The rifle, less lethal?  These are very important tasks, buy are they rated in the observation report?  This class will emphasize the need for the FTOs to be involved with the student officer’s as they develop their skills with firearms.

Domestic Terror is a Real Thing – Bill Cooper, Northwest Universitybillcooper
Bill Cooper will be presenting a 3-hour class on First Responder and Terror.
