PuBLiC safeTy the following are course descriptions for the 2012 act 180 courses. 12-201 Legal Updates (3 Hours Required) This is a three-hour Mandatory In-Service Training (MIST) required course. The block of training will cover important legal issues affecting, and important to, municipal police officers throughout the Commonwealth. This course will cover topics such as changes and updates to the criminal law, vehicle law, Rules of Criminal Procedure and other statues related to law enforcement. This course will also examine, review and explain significant court cases that are relevant to police officers in the Commonwealth from federal and state courts. The goal of the section will be to demonstrate how these cases have a direct impact on how police officers perform their customary duties. $14.85 tuition, .3 CEUs

12-419 Search and Seizure (3 Hours Required) This three-hour course can address other critical law enforcement issues, such as search warrants (probable cause for search warrants, contents of a search warrant, development of a search warrant, review of procedures for the execution of a search warrant, receipt requirements, return rules of a search warrant and other Rules of Criminal Procedure that pertain to search warrants), gaming laws, liquor laws and other jurisprudence or legal issues that the commission members suggest as additional topics to be covered in the course. The goals of this course are to improve officer safety, increase convictions and reduce civil liability. This module will also try to address any other unique legal issues that the course development team identifies during the course design process. $14.85 tuition, .3 CEUs

12-420 Effective Communications (3 Hours Required) This will be an intensive three-hour training course on an important topic that can impact community relations, the officer’s ability to articulate and document the facts of a case and on presenting the case in the courtroom. Being able to communicate effectively is a necessary and vital part of every police chief, law enforcement manager, first line supervisor, and patrol officer’s job. Effective communications can produce several positive outcomes and can be used to inform, persuade, diffuse, guide, motivate, re-assure and negotiate. In contrast, ineffective communication can result in confusion, wrong conclusions, negative stereotypes, frustrations, anger, hostility, aggression and even physical confrontation. Police routinely communicate in every facet of their job, not only when they interview and interrogate individuals, but also in their interactions with the public, professionals in other fields, and their co-workers. This course will address the ability of officers to engage in interpersonal communications by: focusing on the communication process, non-verbal communication and the officer’s listening skills in a ethnically, racially and generationally diverse community. $14.85 tuition, .3 CEUs

12-333 Officer Safety XIV – Mobile & Targeted Assaults (3 Hours Required) In 2008, terrorists conducted a multi-pronged, coordinated attack of various targets in the Indian capital of Mumbai by employing apparently indiscriminant and targeted shootings, bombings, and hostage takings. The assault spanned three days killing more than 150 and wounding over 300. Assaults such as this and others (the Fort Hood assault, and active shooter incidents at various universities, workplaces and malls) not only signify an evolution in criminal/terrorist tactics, but they also pose unique challenges to law enforcement. This course will use video footage, case studies, structured exercises, and facilitation to examine attacks such as these and their implications for police officers. The importance of intelligence gathering and analysis, attention to tactics, equipment, public, and officer safety will also be examined. $14.85 tuition, .3 CEUs
