About the event

This class is designed to help patrol officers understand the intricacies and nuances of drug interdiction. While interdiction can be fruitful in identifying drug couriers/dealers and can sometimes yield cash or other goods through asset forfeiture, there are pitfalls of which patrol officers must be made aware. This class covers:

  •  Techniques in identifying possible drug couriers.
  •  Constitutional constraints.
  • Use of canines.
  • “Dos and don’ts.”
  • Safety measures.
  • Patrol interview techniques.
  • Establishing rapport.
  • Practical exercises.

And much more…

What students are saying about the course:

  •  “Well taught and involved. Real scenarios.”
  •  “Professional. Videos were very helpful.”
  •  “Great class!”
