Certain police procedures carried out as part of normal investigations, police stops and questionings can easily be misunderstood by citizen residents, and can therefore result in confrontation and dispute. These misunderstandings in turn can escalate into various levels of criminal offenses which otherwise were not the purpose of the original stop and investigation. Union County Human Relations Commissioners agreed that steps needed to be taken to forestall these scenarios from occurring whenever possible. In Spring 2000, amidst a national controversy surrounding events that sound much like today's headlines about Feruson, North Carolina, and Miami, the Union County Human Relations Commission and law enforcement community developed the four-session Police & Teens Together (PATT) Program, and since then have delivered it at every Union County high school with excellent results and documented success. The simple format provides an open forum for teens and police to share concerns and upsets, ask questions, exchange viewpoints, and "trade places" in a dynamic role play scenario that delivers impactful results in a fun-filled educational setting, with the benefits of the students sharing their "lessons learned" with classmates, friends and family. Officers who deal with juveniles, community policing and school resource officers are invited to learn how to implement this user-friendly program in your high schools, to increase the level of respect and cooperation and add "voices of reason" that can be heard in your schools and community. Instructors: Lt. Theresa Gazaway and Sgt. Dennis Carovillano, New Providence Police Department; Karen E. Positan, Assistant Public Information Officer, Union County Prosecutor's Office & Union County Human Relations Commissioner More

This powerful three-day program is designed to prepare officers for field-training responsibilities. The future of a police department is significantly impacted by the field training officer (FTO). The FTO is a vital member of the department, responsible for training new recruits and determining the viability of these recruits as law enforcement officers. When FTOs are properly trained, they can help make sound personnel decisions and avoid future performance and legal issues. Rather than using a previously formulated method of instruction, we teach what we believe to be the best of each method, and then allow trainees to devise their own program. This highly interactive class places an emphasis on imparting the knowledge and skills needed to properly train and mentor recruits for work as law enforcement officers. All of our courses are instructed by current practitioners or recently retired executives. Key concepts and topics include Elements of the Communication Process, Adult Learning Concepts, Concepts of Appraisal, Evaluating Training Performance, Ethical Issues, and Job-Task Analysis and Patrol Function.

PLEASE NOTE: Any brand name expandable baton may be used to attend this course. *Current MDTS Instructors may also re-certify at this time.** This course provides an ideal foundation for departments initiating a defensive tactics program for their officers. The Monadnock Defensive Tactics System (MDTS) is a principle-based defensive tactics program. MDTS was created to give the officer a base system for Personal Defense and Restraint Techniques that easily “transitions” into handcuffing. The “principle-based” concept identifies a problem or action and then concentrates on easily-identified principles to define or solve the problem. This method of training allows for flexibility when trying to “meld” this program with the many systems already established within the law enforcement defensive tactics field. It is also designed to accentuate and compliment the Monadnock Expandable Baton (MEB) and PR-24 Control Baton Programs. The MDTS Program will cover basic blocking skills, counter-strikes, control holds, handcuffing and weapon awareness/reaction. Mandatory Equipment: Duty gear with practice firearm, handcuffs and key. Attire: Tactical Uniform or suitable athletic clothing. More
