Human Trafficking Awareness:  September 14, 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.

Non-Destructive Entry (NDE) Basic: April 23-24, 2018 

Why use Non-Destructive Entry (NDE)? Techniques such as lock picking can allow patrol officers, supervisors, command officers, detectives, surveillance/narcotic officers, special response/SWAT teams, Federal, State, County and Local law enforcement a covert and non-destructive entry method.  NDE can be appropriate and helpful for welfare checks, community caretaker functions, suspicious circumstances, search warrants, a tactical option, cover entries, or even a home lockout.
Forced entry is the most expensive and least efficient method of entry, and is not always necessary. With forced entry, there are significant costs of repair or replacement of a smashed door, broken lock and door frame, all of which costs several hundred dollars to well over $1000, not to mention officer time waiting for board up or repair crews, litigation and loss of goodwill.
Basic Course: This 2-day course will introduce participants to the core basics of non-destructive entry, including lock-picking techniques, bumping and bypass methods over a 2-day course with more than 300 locks, Participants will practice on residential and commercial locks, padlocks, deadbolts knob locks, lever handled locks, and mortise cylinders.
