Cold Case Homicide Investigation

The objective of this course is to describe in detail investigative techniques which have successfully solved several old, cold, unsolved homicide cases through a discussion of not only the techniques and strategies utilized, but also through a comprehensive case study analysis, which utilizes real life, practical, hands on experiences to demonstrate how difficult and previously thought unsolvable cases could in fact be solved.  Although the primary focus is on cold case homicides, the practical value from this seminar carries over to all aspects of criminal investigation and is designed to make detectives better all-around investigators.

PPCT Defensive Tactics Instructor

The PPCT Defensive Tactics System is the first subject control system developed through tactical, legal medical research.  Tactically, the system addresses the most common type of resistance that officers may encounter, allowing the instructor to maximize training on related techniques.  Legally, the PPCT System teaches a simple use of force continuum that clarifies the appropriate force level for every level of resistance.  Medical research was conducted on every PPCT technique to refine technique efficiency and to ensure the medical implications were proportional to the level of resistance.
