The Complete Female Cop - Instructed by Heather Glogolich

The field of Law Enforcement is ever changing and so are the dynamics needed to support a well-rounded agency. Navigating a career in law enforcement is never easy. The additional issues that present themselves to women in law enforcement are as complex and diverse as the women who serve in these roles. This course will discuss gender-specific issues in policing including pregnancy, maternity leave, work-life balance, personal and professional relationship development, proactive policing tactics, victim-based policing, servant leadership, mindset, and self-growth. We can only control so much but all too often we give up control on how we approach situations and how we react to outside influences because of what we believe others’ perceptions are. The collateral damage results in the sacrifice of our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Regardless of your gender, rank, assignment, or level of experience, this course will provide you with the necessary tools in order to level up and excel at this profession as a police officer.

Evading Honesty® 2.0

A 1-Day (8 Hour) unique and comprehensive proprietary course focused on building the communication skills of law enforcement professionals to adequately conduct objective interviews/investigations during their daily public encounters. With focus on establishing and improving an officer’s communication skills, this course delivers an in-depth look into proper evaluation of behaviors exhibited by both officers and citizens essential to establishing objective encounters. The techniques and approaches delivered enables any new or seasoned law enforcement professional to productively analyze, interpret, and evaluate dialogue during face-to-face encounters to minimize miscommunications, misinterpretations, and false analysis of responses by understanding factors that affect law enforcement/citizen interactions. Understanding communication essentials enables officers to de-escalate potential problematic situations/hostile encounters, minimize vicarious liability issues as well as citizen complaints, and conduct non-biased objective investigations, by properly detecting deceptive responses that may be present. The course enables officers to understand cultural attributes, communication styles, and delivers a logical approach to analyzing human behaviors. Upon completion of the course, officers will be able to capably articulate their analysis of deceptive behaviors in a report and testify to their findings in a court proceeding.
