Public Safety Training and Consulting

This course is over!

This course is designed to help law enforcement and corrections officers prepare for issues and challenges that may confront them before, during, or after their presentation of decisive testimony and evidence in a judicial court setting or deposition. This class proactively prepares officers for significant factors they may face during critical legal proceedings.  Instructors include a sitting District Court judge, former police chief, and a 25+ year law enforcement professional.

Upon completion of this course, attendees will have been exposed to and provided information on the following items:

The roles and responsibilities of the primary segments of the Judicial System as it relates to Law Enforcement and Corrections including the direct or indirect impact it may have on the adjudication process;

The ability to identify and interpret the various court or testimonial hearings as they relate to an officer’s preparation, presentations, communication, and intra-court relationships;

Comprehension of those actions that will facilitate both positive and negative verbal and non-verbal factors potentially relevant to the success or failure of a proceeding;

The need to focus on responsibilities, commitment, and conviction in response to questions, evidence, and actions;

Identifying “red flags” to change the course of testimony, attack credibility, challenge conduct and “control” the witness;

An understanding of the officer’s rights as a witness v. expectations; and,

At the end, with the information and instruction provided, attendees will have the ability to better prepare for and respond to required testimony during judicial proceedings having gained  a concise understanding of challenges present when answering questions under oath, knowledge of proactive steps to take to alleviate errors, and insight into the judicial system from experienced perspectives. The intent is to educate and maximize professionalism resulting in positive court decisions v. poor presentation creating lost cases and enhanced liability.
