    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.

    Read Joe's bio here.

    Brief Overview:

    Operation RUSH is a two-day criminal interdiction course which breaks down traffic stops into segments consisting of initial violation, location of stop and stopping sequence, exterior and interior indicators, legal options, roadside interviews, arrest and documentation. There is also hands-on vehicle searches in which vehicles are setup with the most up-to-date indicators and finds. K9 officers are encouraged to attend with their partners.

    Every traffic stop is a story waiting to be told. From drug arrests to warrants to robbery suspects to serial killers all these suspects have been arrested during traffic stops.  Criminals are most vulnerable while in transit, going from point A to point B. How will you write the pages of your story? 

    This class is designed to help you look beyond the traffic stop and recognize indicators of criminal activity such as paraphernalia associated with each type of drug.  For example, the meaning of a bent paperclip or a twist tie and its relation to opiate use, in addition to understanding clothing like SRH, No Bad Idea, and many more.

    DPSST Training Category: General

    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
