Attendees will receive extensive power-packed instruction in the latest and safest approaches to motor-vehicle traffic stops designed to apprehend organized gang members, wanted fugitives and major drug-traffickers. Through the eyes of real in-car camera footage, specialized instruction will be received in high-risk traffic stops and roadside interview techniques designed to detect deceptive behavior.
Instruction on proper canine deployment will be provided to attendees with special emphasis on identifying concealment methods being utilized by gang members and drug-traffickers, while learning the best practices for breaching these hides.
As traffic stops increase, so does the probability that an officer will interdict large shipments of drugs as they are being moved from one location to another. During these interdiction stops, officers are often confronted with potentially dangerous and/or deadly situations while being challenged more today than ever before. Defiance is the new norm.
Surviving the complete traffic stop workshop consists of eight modules. The modules will be presented together, but not necessarily in the following order:
- Indicators and Detection Methods
- Legal Considerations
- Roadside Interview Techniques
- Professionalism at the Traffic Stop
- Passenger Vehicle Concealment Locations
- Review of Officer Safety Issues
