    ·         De-escalate or stabilize angry/violent behavior

    ·         Establish meaningful dialog with the threat

    ·         Engage in emotional control tactics

    ·         Establish a therapeutic rapport

    DPSST Training Category: General

    Brief Overview:

    While water related deaths out number fire related deaths by a factor of eight to one, there is very little law enforcement training that focuses specifically on aquatic death. Drowning is the eighth leading cause of death among all homicides, its rank would likely be significantly higher if more drowning deaths were investigated as possible foul play. The typical first thought when you hear “drowning” is that it was an accident. This course is designed to identify the “red flags” of a drowning case which would lead an investigator to prove the event is a homicide and not accidental. Some of the course topics to be covered include:

    • How to prepare the mind set of responding officers
    • What to do upon arrival on a drowning scene
    • Water specific witness interviewing and statement analysis      
    • Preservation of possible water crime scenes
    • What happens to bodies and other evidence underwater
    • Was it not there, or did the dive team just miss it
    • Aquatic Sexual Sadism & Aquatic Erotic Asphyxia           
    • Case History Reviews
    • Submerged Evidence processing                          
    • Indications of homicide by drowning
    • Post-mortem physiology with examination of forensic slides     
    • Court ready documentation of the scene
    • Protect individual and department liability when perpetrators attempt to escape police by way of water, and the perpetrator drowns

    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.

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.

    Brief Overview:

    The Field Training and Evaluation Program (FTEP) was first developed in San José in the 1970’s. Over the years, agencies have evolved in their process, direction, community service and mission. This program has proven to be legally defensible, flexible and meant to be modified and updated to grow with community expectation, agency growth and updated policies.

    During this course you will learn how to implement, modify or update a solid training program for your agency by learning:

     Background of FTEP

     Trainee Orientation

     Evaluating Performance

     Communication Skills

     Adult Learning Theory

     Generational Changes

     Trainer Selection Process

     Liability

     Corrective Training

     FTEP Phases

     Termination

     Ethics as a Trainer

    This training will also cover some of the popular philosophies and practices from the similar Police Training Officer (PTO) program, which requires trainees to have ownership in their learning by developing problem-solving skills, self-reflection and emotional intelligence.

    50th ANNUAL LAW ENFORCEMENT CONFERENCE

    "USE OF FORCE SYMPOSIUM"

    Please join us at our 50th Annual Conference and Awards Banquet. 

    located at Spirit Mountain Event Center, Grand Ronde.

    Tuesday, November 12, 2019

    Dr. Bill Lewinski; Force Science

    Fundamentals of Force Science 

    Human Performance Dynamics in Force Incidents have proven to be critical factors in the development of policy, training, and investigation. This presentation will focus on the latest research on assailant behavior, that used high speed digital video imaging, accelerometers and gyroscopes to measure the speed and nature of assaults.  It will also address the necessary training required to effectively address these threats, including skill and decision training. This will be compared to the training results from a three-year, comprehensive study on force training in three states and three countries.  The implications for investigation as well as an understanding between digital memory (video) and human memory in force encounters will also be presented.

    Wednesday, November 13, 2019

    Lt. Col. Dave Grossman; KRG, LLC

    The Bullet Proof Mind

    Psychological preparation for combat. Bringing together current trends in violence, from terrorists to aggravated assaults, Col. Grossman coalesces his research into a presentation affirming the life that all law enforcement and military professionals have chosen to lead. Within that context, Grossman presents a model for action that ensures professionals can train for and overcome the unique mental stressors of possible violence. Find out what to expect when your heart rate rises and blood drains from your face, and how to avoid it.

    A cornerstone for professional training if you might come into contact with inter-personal violence. Knowing what strange and wonderful things might happen to your body in these stressful situations is the first step to making the correct decision in the heat of the moment... and after.

    Lt. Jim Glennon (Ret.); Calibre Press

    Guardians of Democracy

    With Community, Safety, Science and Statistics as the basis of our course, The Guardians of Democracy begins by examining how the media, activist groups and national events have shaped the community’s perception of Law Enforcement. We follow-up with a discussion about how this has affected Management Decisions and consequently, the officer’s role in proactive policing.

    We then explore the Professional Goal; Controlling, Re-Directing and Influencing Others through Effective Communication. Using current videos, case studies and first-hand accounts of officer involved incidents, the presentation will:

    1. Analyze the true statistics of officer use of force interactions.

    2. Educate Students in the Science of Human Performance as it relates to memory, time motion and selective attention during highly dynamic encounters.

    3. Teach the Communication Skills necessary to read people, interact effectively and establish rapport with communities we serve.

    4. Offer critical techniques in de-escalation, calming the irrational and dealing with the mentally ill.

    As with all Calibre Press curricula, this course is constantly evolving, updating as this profession evolves. Course topics will include, but are not limited to:

     Community, Media and Law Enforcement  The Science of Human Performance  True Statistics on Use of Force Incidents  The Power of De-Escalation  Implicit Bias  Dignity and Respect…Everyone Deserves it!  Viewing Video: Seeing is Not Necessarily Believing  The Power of the Unconscious  Perspective, Focus & Memory  Stress and Maladaptive Officer Responses  Balance: The Most Difficult Aspect of Law Enforcement  The Professional Goal: Controlling, Redirecting & Influencing Others

    Chief Janie Schutz, Forest Grove Police Department

    Courageous Decision Making

    In this presentation, Chief Janie Schutz, reflects on her 30 year career to bring a thought provoking perspective to challenging how the men and women of law enforcement can bring a positive and bold change to this honorable profession.  Chief Schutz shares her personal story and struggle to break from mainstream decision making, both as an officer and as an administrator, in addressing issues that the law enforcement community must deal with daily.  Chief Schutz’s fresh approach encourages her audience to look into themselves for hidden innovative solutions to make our profession better for future generations.  The Chief puts it all on the line for officers and administrators to feel empowered and courageous to work together in choosing what the roads to our future might be.  Chief Schutz calls this “Uncommon Decision Making to Uncommon Leadership”.

    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.
