Police Academy and In-Service Training

November Training



The purpose of this 16-hour course is to increase an officer's ability to observe, identify, and articulate the signs of impairment related to drugs, alcohol or a combination of both.  The ARIDE program also stresses the importance of securing the most appropriate biological sample in order to identify substances likely causing impairment.  Applicants must have taken the SFST Practitioner training in order to attend this course.  The ARIDE program includes Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) refresher class and requires the student to perform a successful demonstration of Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN), Walk and Turn, and One Leg Stand at the conclusion of the refresher segment.  *If a student cannot correctly demonstrate proficiency they will be asked to leave.  Officers are strongly encouraged to review their SFST procedure prior to the class.

Demand for ARIDE training is high.  Once confirmed for the training, failure to attend without notification may impact enrollment for you and your agency in future ARIDE training opportunities.

Vacancies will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.  If there is a last-minute emergency, you may substitute with another student who is also SFST certified.

Essentials in Correctional Excellence

Corrections Officers today work in one of the most physically and mentally challenging areas within law enforcement.  Traditionally, the primary training focus has revolved around hard skills such as firearms, baton, and self-defense.  While vital to officer survival, focusing on "hard skills" alone is incomplete and can result in officer injuries and liability for agencies.  That's why Essentials in Correctional Excellence was created.  This course provides frontline Correctional Officers and supervisors with the communication, threat assessment, and elicitation to protect themselves, while simultaneously improving the quality of contacts with inmates under their supervision.
