Specialized Classes
Cultural Competency
As a law enforcement professional, you will work with all members of the community. What that community looks like will change because the population of the United States is constantly changing. We live in a country that is getting bigger, getting older, and getting more multi-cultural. Officers who know their communities and the various populations within those communities can work with all residents to ensure your safety and the safety of the people you serve.

In addition to sound tactical skills, professional officers need superior communication and problem-solving skills in all cultures. Officers need to be respectful of and responsive to the beliefs, practices and cultural needs of different people with diverse backgrounds. In this course, officers/participants will learn about the concept of implicit bias and how these biases can impact the perception and behavior of law enforcement officers.

This will not be a course where the instructor does all the talking. Attendees will be encouraged to be involved in course discussions and express their thoughts and opinions in a professional and respectful environment. Each attendee will bring their own cultural backgrounds and life experiences to the class and encouraged to share if comfortable.

This is a blended course that includes lecture, course activities, discussions, and projects that will compliment course learning objectives and help each attendee gain a better understanding of culture and race in our communities.

Victim Services & Community Action Teams
A large percentage of a public safety worker’s responsibility is responding to, investigating, and handling tragic incidents.   Oftentimes those responsibilities interfere with our ability to help and console those impacted by the event and even taking care of ourselves.

Several communities in Northeast Wisconsin have teamed together to band with their communities and form teams that work together with law enforcement, fire, EMS and emergency management in times of need. These teams started out as grass roots organizations and became established and entrenched within their communities in a short period of time. Not only are these teams consistently used within their communities but they have been recognized and called out to tragedies throughout Wisconsin and the United States.

Join us as we have representatives of the Fox Cities Victim Crisis Response (VCR) Team, Outagamie County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and the WI Office of Crime Victim Services discuss their programs, how they were founded, how they are sustainable and how they benefit their communities and emergency responders.

Understanding the Police Profession
This class is designed to help new & veteran officers, students, and family members understand the complex profession of a career in law enforcement and will help them gain a better understanding of the pitfalls that are not always taught in most police recruit academies. I will cover topics that include; post-traumatic stress disorder, shift work, harassment from other officers, ethics, traumatic crime scenes, personal relationships, substance abuse, field training, coping mechanisms for stressors, finances, divorce, on duty police deaths, the debriefing process, suicide, and many more. 
 
This class is also built in conjunction with helping families and loved ones gain insight of “My Cop” and helps them see what we as officers are going through before it happens. This is a class that is a roller coaster of emotions. You may cry, you will laugh, and at times, topics will be very serious in nature. We will discuss the negative aspects of a career in law enforcement, but also celebrate what a truly wonderful profession this really is. Families are encouraged to attend this training with officers.

This class will cover tips and strategies on how to manage these news stories and critical incidents as well as methods to get reporters to cover the positive happenings at your agency. We will also feature a panel discussion with various media representatives so you can learn directly from them on what they are seeking.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design and Security Surveys
As we have entered the 21st century we have witnessed terrible acts of violence that have been committed in a variety of locations. This has brought the concept of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) to the forefront as we work to detect, deter and delay these criminals and terrorists. The use of CPTED intertwined with threat assessments is rapidly becoming the new norm in policing and security work.

This class also will incorporate a hands-on assessment at a local business and the opportunity to pass on what was learned to the rest of the class.
