Officer Safety

Courses & Events

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.

Over the past several years, law enforcement and first responders across the United States have seen an alarming increase in the availability of dangerous synthetic opioids in the communities we serve. A large percentage of these synthetic opioids are derivatives of the synthetic drug "fentanyl." Fentanyl is listed as a Schedule II prescription drug that mimics the effects of morphine in the human body, but at a much higher potency. In addition to its high potency, fentanyl is readily available and is often used as an "additive" to other controlled substances, leading to an alarming increase of overdose deaths and accidental exposures.
