The foundational course Street Cop Training was built on. This career-changing
*Salt Lake City Area*
training has been taken by over 10,000 law enforcement officers and has been regarded
as the best course ever created for police officers. Humorous, exciting, and extremely valuable, this course
is designed to be enjoyed by every division and rank. This program has been deemed so vital for police
officers that several agencies have sent all sworn personnel to attend. Some have even added it as a
prerequisite to completing their field-training program. This training is not just for the pro-active officer, as
it provides essential information all LEO’s must know. Referred to as a “game changer,” this is the perfect
course for anyone looking to take their policing to the next level, or to polish their existing abilities as an
effective police officer. You will feel more confident, re-energized, and gain a renewed sense of purpose.
The course begins with covering case law that police officers need to know. Local and surrounding state’s
case law is included. The exposure to this kind of knowledge is a MUST have in today’s modern policing. We can
no longer afford to guess what to do next. Society expects a police officer that confidently knows exactly
what to do. Re-active or pro-active, officers must know what is constitutionally compliant. This will put an end
to common police misconceptions and muster room debates. We supply facts and the binding legal court
rulings that support our teachings. The case law portion alone will put the attendee significantly ahead of a
majority of officers in their legal know-how. Save yourself the embarrassment, criminal, civil, or internal
penalties of making a bad decision.
The course goes beyond case law and into pro-active policing and how to be an effective police officer. The
student will be privy to watching strategically edited police videos in a way that breaks down the indicators of
criminal behavior. Being able to recognize crime before, during and after it occurs through these
constitutionally compliant techniques has allowed our attendees to bring thousands of fugitives to justice,
apprehend some of the most heinous offenders, rescue kidnapped children, interrupt and rescued human
trafficking victims, stop crimes in progress and solve countless unsolved crimes. Agencies that consider
crimes like these to be a top priority will love this course and what it will do for their personnel.
Furthermore, without being aware of the red flags of criminal behavior, police officers, unbeknownst to them,
put themselves in significant danger of deadly situations. This training will help the attendee recognize preattack indicators. Combined with simple tactical changes that are explained, the likelihood of surviving police
work rises expeditiously. Save your life. Save the life of others. This is a course you just can’t afford to miss.
