    Instructors:

    Byron Boston, Retired Dallas Police Dept.

    Byron Boston served twenty years with Dallas Police Department before retiring in May 2017 and is currently a Reserve Dallas Police Officer.  He spent over fourteen years in the Narcotics Division as an undercover officer.  For five years, Byron was assigned to the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a Task Force Officer to investigate transnational criminal organizations impacting the Southwest Border of the United States.  These investigations involved drug trafficking, extortions, kidnappings, and homicides.  

    DPSST Course Number: 17-0656

    Brief Overview:

    Now more than ever, police officers must learn to balance aggressive crime fighting strategies with an understanding that their actions may be perceived as racial profiling, civil rights violations, criminal offenses, or as mistreatment of citizens in the communities they are sworn to protect and serve.  It is the front line patrol officer & supervisor who are at the greatest risk of a hostile encounter.  THIS IS NOT A TRADITIONAL TRAINING CLASS and this course is NOT designed to create an atmosphere of passive or reactive policing.

    This one day course will help officers identify & understand the problem, communicate more effectively with minorities, ensure compliance with federal & state laws, prepare for hostile encounters, and continue to engage in proactive policing without jeopardizing their safety.

     This course will focus on bridging the gap between law enforcement and minorities, while maintaining smart, aggressive strategies to deal with those that choose to violate the law.

    Topics covered include, but are not limited to an overview of movements/protest, Preparation for Hostile Encounters, Tactical De-escalation Techniques (Overview), Understanding DOJ Consent Decree, Communicating More Effectively with Minorities, Building Community Trust, True Officer Safety Consideration, and more.
