Courses & Events

The ability to resolve conflict is often at the heart of a law enforcement officer's day. Through trial and error, we find techniques that work for us, at least most of the time. But by understanding the science behind conflict and the different ways that it can be resolved, we can better adapt and work our way through different types of conflict to a successful conclusion.

By developing an early intervention system (EIS), we create a healthier and happier environment, maintain and grow trust with those we serve, and continuously develop our employees. Because EIS systems are designed to identify employees with patterns of problematic conduct early, we can catch concerning trends and work with the employee to avoid a stalled career, discipline, or termination.

The front-line supervisor is one of the most critical positions in any law enforcement organization. While there are commonalities between managing patrol units and special units, there are also many differences, from our primary functions to how we dress to our decisions. These differences are only sometimes readily identifiable to the newly transferred supervisor. This class will help the special unit supervisor identify and develop strategies for dealing with these unique issues head-on. For this course, a special unit is any unit whose primary duty is not uniformed patrol or conventional investigations.
