    "Breach Point for Leadership"
    Presented by: Chief Kent Williams, Ret.

    This training will help gaining a distinctly different perspective on the unique and potentially problematic consequences of performing well within a law enforcement culture.   Executives, managers and supervisors will examine better ways to reduce their stress and simultaneously garner greater staff compliance with department standards.  Leaders will address stressors encountered by the rank and file which influence the pivotal balance between professional and personal relationships. 

    Emphasis will be placed upon executives, managers and supervisors, developing leadership practices and policies that recognize and encourage accomplishment of organizational goals while also taking better care of themselves and the people who serve under their leadership.

    Topics will include:

    Inspiring a new generation of Knights

    Examining the Need To Be Needed

    Removing classic frustrations encountered by all law enforcement officers & the consequences of rewarding cynicism

    How the dynamics of control and trust can negatively influence officer attitudes

    How to lead and inspire those who have been taught to anticipate the worst in everything

    Being an optimistic leader among a sea of professional pessimists

    Overcoming the damaging effects of "the rule bound" and stoic approaches to the job

    Recognizing the symptoms of stress and how police stress differs significantly from other jobs

    Developing a personal and organizational action plan to confront the issues

    Learning to help others overcome unhealthy organizational over-investment

    Why officers are at greater risk for alcohol abuse, divorce, isolation, depression and suicide

    Warning signs of distress and preventative programs to reduce  and monitor it.

    Joe Miller, Thane Training, Joe is a 20+ year veteran of a large city police department in Oregon. Joe has served primarily in the patrol division with collateral duties in crisis negotiation, civil disturbance, civil investigation, and defensive tactics cadre. In addition, Joe is a long-time adjunct instructor at a local community college and at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST). Joe’s experience as an officer and trainer show in his ability to mix information, experience and humor in the right combination to keep attendees interested and involved.      

    Brief Overview:

    As first responders, we understand “Ask, Tell, Make”.  What about those situations that represent a risk to the subject or others that should be mitigated?  How about situations that would benefit from additional time to get tactical and/or command elements into place, to give the victims the best possible chance of the best possible outcome? Maybe you’re the only one responding and you want to be confident your knowledge of de-escalation is on par with your tactical resolution skill set. Attendees of Crisis Communication for First Responders will leave the class with a practical set of skills that they can use to:            

    • De-escalate or stabilize angry/violent behavior
    • Establish meaningful dialog with the threat
    • Word choice/emotional control tactics
    • Handle request/demands/deadlines the threat gives you
    • Establish a therapeutic rapport
    • Gather meaningful intelligence from the threat/victims
    • Up-Channel vital information for commanders/decision makers

    Detective Robert Rookhuyzen, Washington County Sheriff Office

    Robert L. Rookhuyzen is a detective with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, currently assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit. He is also a member of the Washington County Major Crimes Team. Detective Rookhuyzen is a graduate of Brigham Young University. He started his law enforcement career in 2001 with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and was assigned to patrol. He served as a Field Training Officer and a member of the Washington County Crisis Negotiations Unit. He was promoted to Corporal in 2007 and Detective in 2010. He was assigned to the Child Abuse Investigations Unit from 2010-2015. He is a 2017 winner of the Federal Bureau of Investigations Director’s Award for Distinguished Service to Victims of Violent Crime. Detective Rookhuyzen enjoys showing others how easy it is to prepare search warrant affidavits and obtain search warrants in Oregon.

    Brief Overview:

    Search warrants are vital to every investigator. Learn when they’re required, how to efficiently write affidavits and get that evidence you need for your case. Tips and tricks will be shared on how to contact the right people at various organizations and web sites. Samples of search warrants and affidavits will be shared. As part of the class, the instructor will review the electronic process of preserving and obtaining records from Facebook.        

    This class is designed for every patrol officer/deputy, as well as new detectives. It is also a great refresher for people who already have some experience writing search warrants.  After a review of search warrant concepts and the process of obtaining a search, class members will write two search warrants (including one for Facebook) based on realistic practical scenarios.  The instructor will provide feedback on each affidavit and search warrant written.
