The Bureau of Professional Development within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement has created professional, comprehensive, and interesting online training courses that satisfy the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission’s (CJSTC) mandate for officer re-certification. These courses include the four mandatory topics, Juvenile Sexual Offender Investigation, Discriminatory Profiling & Professional Traffic Stops/Human Diversity, Domestic Violence, Physiological Response Dynamics Training Video (however no training hours will be given for this course) and other courses of interest to law enforcement personnel. All training hours are free and eligible for use toward the CJSTC 40 hour mandatory retraining requirement.

IMPORTANT NEWS AND SCHEDULE CHANGES
 
TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES   

Broward College/IPS will be hosting a one-day class “Dynamics of Officer/Citizen Encounters” on Thursday, October 24, 2019.  Police interactions with citizens are in the national spotlight. What previously wouldn't have made the local paper now makes national news. Officers need tools to effectively engage citizens in a professional manner without compromising their own safety in the process. That's why Dynamics of Officer/ Citizen Encounters was created. Through guided discussions, video analysis and case studies, participants will examine:
Current Research about the Threats to Officer Safety
Going Beyond the Buzzwords: A New Look at De-escalation
Know Your Authority: Keeping Contacts Lawful
Adaptive Decision Making: Tools for Increased Safety
What Pushes Your Buttons? Improving Emotional Intelligence
Unconditional Respect: An Officer Safety Tool
The cost of the course is $149 and students may register with Command Presence Training.


The Broward Sheriff’s Office is presenting a 40 hour “Bicycle Patrol Course” October 28-November 1, 2019 from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.  This course will provide the students with the skills needed to safely and effectively operate a mountain bike during patrol.  The cost of the course is $100 and to register please download the Visiting Application form.  For more information please contact Lt. Ana Murillo-Quigley at ana_murillo@sheriff.org.

Broward College/IPS will be hosting a one-day class “Leading Without Rank:  Leadership for the Line Officer” on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.  The belief that officers must have rank to be considered leaders is a myth that has hindered our profession for too long. Traditional leadership programs have focused on those who have already been promoted, but what about those who haven't? Some of the most effective leaders don't have brass on their collars or stripes on their sleeves. Leading Without Rank was designed to inspire officers to seek out leadership opportunities within organizations and provide the skills and motivation to influence behaviors of those around them and influence the culture of their organization.
We will focus on:
The differences between Authority vs. Influence
Inward Mindset vs. Outward Mindset
Planning for personal and professional development
How intentional effort leads to leadership success
Leading yourself and taking ownership of your actions
The art of Unconditional Respect
The cost of the class is $149 and student may register with Command Presence Training.

Calibre Press presents a special 2 day “Female Enforcer and Emotional Survival for Female Enforcers” seminar on December 3-4, 2019.  This course will take it a step beyond the physical, mental and tactical training provided for professional survival. By pairing the Female Enforcers seminar with the Emotional Survival for Female Enforcers course, the often-overlooked realm of emotional/personal survival will be explored in its entirety.  The class is being held at Broward College/IPS and the cost per person is $349.  For more information and register on line at www.calibrepress.com.

Broward College/IPS is hosting a one-day "Glock Armorers Course" December 12, 2019 from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM at A. Hugh Adams Central Campus in Davie, FL.  During this one day class (8  hour) students will learn how to safely use and maintain your weapon. To be eligible to take the Armorers Course you must be an active/retired law enforcement or military officer, private security, GLOCK Stocking Dealer/Range Program Employee or current GSSF member.  The cost of the course is $250.00 per person.  Please register for the class with Glock.
