Emerging Drug Trends for Law Enforcement: Signs, symptoms, safety and hazard assessment
Class Description

One of the most dangerous aspects of both Public Safety and Law Enforcement is dealing with unknowns. Over the last decade the proliferation of synthetic drugs, manufacturing and distribution of narcotics has created extreme hazards for Public Safety. Personnel cannot protect both themselves and the public, remember, "If you can't recognize a hazard, you can't protect yourself"

This training class is designed for all Public Safety professionals who contact subjects, enter residences (i.e. search warrants, probation checks) and conduct investigations. This course is extremely important for Law Enforcement and Public Safety professionals who have frequent contacts with narcotic abusers or conduct investigations regarding distribution. The course primarily addresses officer safety and hazard assessment.

  • Officer Safety
