Uniformed Narcotics Course (3 Days)

The Government Training Institute's Basic Uniformed Narcotics Course is a three day Law Enforcement curriculum specifically designed for the uniformed patrol officer.

The course encourages proactive law enforcement. Over 16 classroom topics are covered within this three day (24 hour) frame work. We recognize that the overwhelming majority of our officers are from smaller departments where every officer has to "do it all". This fast paced course will reward the patrol officer with knowledge and techniques to enhance their abilities on the street, and give new ideas.

Classes include proper suspect targeting verses inappropriate activities such as "race" profiling. We explore roadside interviews, warrantless searches, K-9 resources, concealed compartments and evidence handling. We discuss drug identification, club drugs and the symptomology officers are seeing on the street. The informant cultivation and development class encourages every officer to construct intelligence networks and sources into the criminal community with an eye toward domestic terrorism.

Investigative techniques such as knock & talk, surveillances, residence targeting, trash pick ups and repeat offender programs are explained.
