Tip of the Week

In-Service/Informal Training for the BIT
By Jason Hendershot
In law enforcement, as in many other professions, each state or governing entity may require members to take a certain number of hours of continuing education each year. While this represents a best practice in many fields, it may not be required of all professions represented on the Behavioral Intervention Team. There are several mechanisms a BIT can utilize to share knowledge and gain understanding among team members. I advocate utilizing down times between semesters or over breaks to revitalize the team and better prepare them for the return of students.
