In order to apprehend criminals before, during and after the commission of an offense, officers must possess an understanding of proper criminal interdiction techniques. “Identifying Criminal Vehicles and Occupants” provides officers instruction on how to employ effective techniques used to apprehend offenders. This course explains the mindset of an effective police officer. It highlights the criminal indicators displayed prior to the encounter, body language, signs of deception, vehicle hides, and the legalities surrounding this type of proactive enforcement. Street Cop Training exemplifies the knowledge and skills required in order to accomplish legal law enforcement objectives. This course is designed to showcase how the operator who committed a simple traffic violation may be engaging in further criminal activity. The class will enhance an officers understanding and awareness of a identifying a criminal vehicle, in addition to subsequent investigation. Lack of training in this area results in improper conduct, embarrassment, and could cost an untrained police officer their life.
