Listed below are a majority of the specialty skills training training sessions for 2021.
We are in need of Instructors in multiple areas, but especially in these “skill” areas.
We refer to the "Special Skills" as the following areas of training:
>Defensive Tactics Training
>Speed Measurement Training
>Critical Incident Training-(CIT)
>DUI / SFST training
>Applied Patrol Tactics (APT)-BLE
>Entry Level Jail Practicals (ELJ)-BJA
Special Skills Training Coordinator Michael Darden is in charge of coordinating all of the above skill
areas at both the Basic and In-Service level, including Instructor level training.
We are posting the dates in advance with the hope that instructors will contact the academy indicating
their desire to assist. Prior coordination of officers with their supervisors and training officers regarding the dates will hopefully result in increased availability.
The dates may be “ranges” of dates, and may need to be adjusted slightly, for example they may include state holidays, but this will give you an idea when the courses are.
If you are interested in helping, please see the links in the blue box to the right for opportunities to do so. If you have any questions, feel free to visit the Academy Staff page and contact the person in charge of any area.
