Police Academy and In-Service Training

November Training


Below 100 Training

The Below 100 Program is designed to drastically reduce law enforcement Line of Duty Deaths (LODD's).  The Below 100 Program specifically addresses the operational areas of law enforcement that contribute to the greatest number of LODD's, but are in large part preventable.  The Below 100 program is an effort to instill a culture of safety in law enforcement agencies that will progressively reduce national LODD's to Below 100 annually.  This program is open to all law enforcement, corrections officers and law enforcement reserve officers.

The Ultimate FTO


The Ultimate FTO is a two day, evidence based officer safety program focused on human performance improvement.  The Ultimate FTO program is not a basic FTO program, but rather a skills enhancement course that will make the "good" FTO a "great" FTO.  This is also a great training opportunity for those who may become FTO's in the future.  The course is learner centered, with interactive learning activities, case reviews, and video analysis.  This program is not based on developing mechanical training or rote skills commonly found in traditional field training officer (FTO) programs, but rather enhancing FTO's abilities to help new officers learn.  The course is designed from more than 50 empirical resources and collaboration from Subject Matter Experts (SME's) throughout North America.

Rooted in Calibre Press's foundational belief that quality training should provide evidence based, practical, and immediately applicable tools for officer safety, the goals of this class are simple:

1.    To identify the essential characteristics and skills necessary form improving performance of new police officers, with an emphasis on decision making under stress and officer safety.

2.    To teach FTO's a new way of providing feedback that breaks with traditional feedback models and has been proven to increase human performance.,

3.    To provide FTO's the tools to train in essential skills that are frequently not taught in basic academy curriculum.

Instructor:    John Bostain is currently a Program Specialist at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Glynco, Georgia.  For the past 15 years John has been a National Trainer, instructing more than 10,000 police officers at State, Local, and Federal levels.  John teaches in Subject Matter - Use of Force, Officer Safety, Control Tactics, Firearms, Driving, Instructor Development, and he is a Below 100, LLC Certified Train-the-Trainer Instructor.  John was the recipient of the prestigious "Law Officer Magazine Trainer of the Year" 2012.
