PATC
  1. Responding to Veterans and Police Officers in Crisis

June 22 - 23, 2020: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Additional Information & Registration at: http://www.patc.com/training/schedule.php

This two day training module is taught by a veteran who has worked with veterans and police officers on issues of transition and service for almost a decade. A survivor of a tragic jet crash as a US Marine and someone who overcame severe PTSD, he understands personally the kind of issues veterans face coming home and how to respond to them. More and more veterans are coming home to our communities. While many have a healthy transition, others face a myriad of difficulties from unemployment, depression, PTSD and in some cases, destructive behavior such as domestic violence, suicide, and other disturbances. This class will prepare your officers to better respond to veterans while making themselves more resilient. Combat veterans and police officers have similar lifetime rates of conditions like PTSD, and a resilient police department is the best way to prepare to respond to veterans.

  1. Verbal De-escalation & Crisis Communications

July 9 - 10, 2020: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Additional Information & Registration at: http://www.patc.com/training/schedule.php

Course Objectives

Today’s scrutiny placed upon police officers and other first responders have resulted in a growing need to master verbal conflict and crisis communication skills. When verbal encounters become adversarial and escalate, they can often lead to controversial use of force issues. When many of these incidents are reviewed the officer is often scrutinized for their lack of de-escalation techniques. Verbal de-escalation has become an essential training issue in law enforcement and was included in The National Consensus Policy on Use of Force (January 2017). The policy is the result of collaboration between 11 agencies, including the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). Although no training can ever reasonably be expected to stop all incidents in escalating to use of force, many citizens and communities have begun to expect officers receive training and when possible apply verbal de-escalation strategies.

This course is designed to help individuals working in law enforcement, corrections as well as EMT’s Fire Fighters, and others understand and deal with individuals who are agitated or in crisis. Attendees will learn that communicating verbally during a potential force encounter may aid in stabilizing the situation. Verbal de-escalation may reduce the immediacy of the threat so that more time, options, and resources can be called upon to resolve the situation. Attendees will learn many of the same skills Crisis/Hostage negotiators use to de-escalate, build rapport, and move the subject agitation/crisis towards the rational communications that benefits everyone involved. Attendees will also learn how to become more effective listeners which in turn will make individuals better officers, report takers, and overall better communicators. This can aid in the reduction of officer complaints and possibly in some instances even use of force issues.

TRAINING COURSES OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC:

***Due to COVID-19, We are not offering training courses to the public***

The Shreveport City Marshal's Office currently offers a Civilian Response to Active Attack Events and STOP THE BLEED® courses to the public.  

Civilian Response to Active Attack Event is a nationally recognized and federally funded course that teaches civilians how to respond before, during, and after an active attack event or life-threatening incident. The original program, Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) was created by Advance Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University. The course is designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004. It provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active attack event. In 2013, ALERRT was named the national standard in Active Shooter Response by the FBI. Currently, FBI Agents are becoming instructors in CRASE. Through research, this course gives you the best possible chance to survive an active attack event or even life-threatening event. The course is free to the public.

STOP THE BLEED® is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. The STOP THE BLEED® campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the White House National Security Council Staff. The purpose of the campaign is to build national resilience by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters. STOP THE BLEED® is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Minutes count! Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as 5 minutes. That’s why bleeding control—keeping the blood inside the body—is the purpose of STOP THE BLEED® training.
