This course will familiarize the officer with selection, carry and use of a knife when a firearm cannot be worn or is positioned in such a way it cannot be quickly deployed. The legal, policy and use of force considerations of knife use by law enforcement will be examined to provide a framework for officers to decide the relevance of this ancient tool to the unique needs of the modern law enforcement officer.

Emotional intelligence (EQ) and the ability to resolve conflict is often at the heart of a law enforcement officer's day. The skills not only help with your work and private life but give you a better understanding of yourself. Many controversial events that have occurred within the profession have been born out of an officer's lack of EQ or their inability to control emotions.

Over the past several years, active community violence situations have brought attention to how first responders respond. One particular concern is how medical care is provided to victims during the early stages of the response. Usually, law enforcement is the first on the scene, and depending on scene safety considerations, they may be the only responders to provide initial aid to themselves, their partners, other first responders, and civilians. As violence against law enforcement and other first responders continues to increase, research shows that having medical providers near downed officers within seconds of being injured increases the chance of the injured officer surviving the incident.
