State and Local Law Enforcement Training Symposium (In-Service)

Up one level

The State and Local Law Enforcement Training Symposium (SLLETS) is a 5-day training symposium that offers dynamic workshops for sworn law enforcement officers from state, local, rural, tribal and territorial agencies. These highly requested courses are taught by subject matter experts from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers. The training offered in the SLLETS is state certified (where available) and counted towards continuing educational units.

Below is the list of specialized training tracks that will be available for the upcoming training in Glynco, GA:

TRACK 1:  Tactical Medicine Training

– The Tactical Medicine Training Program is intended to provide LEO/Operator with the most current information and gain knowledge and skills necessary to prevent the loss of their life or the life of another while in a combat or tactical environment. The skills learned in this program will include treating life threatening injuries in an austere environment with limited equipment, lack of medically trained personnel and prolonged time to evacuation. Training Topics include: Medical Threat Assessment, Applying Techniques to Control Life Threatening Bleeding, Performing Techniques to Treat Life Threatening and Non-Life Threatening Injuries and Demonstration of Lifting and Moving Victims from Hostile Environments.

TRACK 2:  Mobile Device Investigations

– In the United States today there are over 327 million cellular phones. With a population of over 315 million, and discounting those who are very young, it’s safe to say that almost everyone has a cell phone. Never in the history of technology has a single device so quickly become imbedded into the fabric of society. To a great extent, law enforcement has not kept pace with the rapid evolution of cell phone technology nor adequately addressed the investigative significance of cell phones. These mobile, handheld devices are far more than communications tools. Virtually all cell phones are digital storage devices that retain a substantial amount of personal data. The ability to lawfully seize, and analyze this evidence has great investigative potential for the law enforcement officer. The Mobile Device Investigations Program (MDIP) provides investigators with training in the art of cellular acquisitions, understanding GSM, CDMA, and emerging technologies as well as framing investigations from evidence obtained through call detail records.

TRACK 3:  Advanced Interviewing for Law Enforcement Investigators Training

 – This course will provide the students with an arsenal of methods and skills to use during the course of various interview and interrogation situations they will face on a daily basis. This training program will teach students how to obtain information effectively through various interview and interrogation methods, techniques and theory. The student will learn the advantages of effective verbal and non-verbal communication as well as ways to detect deception through verbal and non-verbal observations of others. Interview and interrogation theories will be presented along with various techniques of approaching different types of interview situations. These skills will help the students prepare for their real world cases. Training topics include: Eye Accessing Cues and Behavioral Baselines, Theories and Methods of Interrogations, Advanced Rapport Strategies, Question Types to Elicit Admissions, Handling Denials, Countering Interviewee Questions, Advanced Evidence & Theme Presentation, Interrogation Case Study and Subject Elimination Interviews.

TRACK 4:  Law Enforcement Driving Skills

- This course will offer multiple law enforcement driving opportunities to include: Emergency Response/Evasive, Non-Emergency Response, Skid Control, 4 wheel drive/all-terrain vehicle operation and traffic stops. Driving facilities include a 1.6 mile emergency response road course, multiple (Pod) non-emergency response ranges, water injected skid pad and 15 acre four wheel drive and all-terrain vehicle complex. Attendees will receive classroom and hands on instruction in vehicle dynamics and the proven principles and techniques associated with law enforcement emergency and non-emergency vehicle operation. Participants will also be provided training in off road four wheel drive and all-terrain vehicle operation. Vehicles provided for training include fully equipped police package sedans, SUVs and all-terrain (quad) vehicles. There will also be a short block of instruction on traffic stops and associated dangers. Knowledge and skills gained through this driver training program will help the law enforcement officer have a better understanding of both vehicle and driver capabilities and therefore make them safer to themselves and those they serve.

TRACK 5:  Survival Shooting Training Program

– The Survival Shooting Training Program is specifically designed to develop survival/reactive shooting skills. These skills are designed to be applied in any stressful situation. The student learns to apply the reactive shooting concept to virtually any handgun or shoulder mounted weapon used in law enforcement or military today. The program focuses primarily on the semi-automatic pistol, with additional emphasis on shoulder mounted weapons (e.g., submachine gun, M-4/M-16, and shotgun) based on agency long gun use. Ultimately, this training program helps prepare LEOs to survive a deadly force confrontation through competent decision making and confident gun handling skills. During the course, the student is required to demonstrate: Safe weapons handling skills and operations of associated weapons; Combat mindset; Reactive shooting fundamentals; Grip, draw, presentation and movement while shooting; Extreme Close Quarters Shooting; Transition drills; One Hand Survival Techniques; Down and/or Disabled Officer techniques (shooting from alternate positions); and more.
