Designed For:  This course is designed for uniformed state and local law enforcement officials who are interested in enhancing their criminal interdiction knowledge and traffic enforcement activities to serve as an effective means to deter and detect criminal/drug trafficking behavior. 
Course Description:  Criminal Interdiction a function of many law enforcement personnel normal duties is rarely taught at academies and in-service training.  The course is designed to address the many issues that are encountered during criminal/drug interdiction patrol stops.  This course will prepare law enforcement personnel to look beyond the initial traffic stop to detect and apprehend all types of criminals/drug smugglers that are using our highways, streets and rural roads. 
The course will cover officer safety issues in great detail.  Safety is a primaryconsideration during a vehicle/drug interdiction stop. Almost any approach to a vehicle is potentially dangerous.  What may seem like a standard traffic stop for a violation by the driver, may instead be a stop of a vehicle occupied by individuals who have committed or are in the process of committing a criminal act.  It is estimated that four out of five crimes involve mobility. (Source: NHTSA) It should also be noted that well over 90 percent of drug smuggling involves vehicles. The officer’s intentions are a great concern to criminals caught in this situation.  Their reaction, if any, to the stop is highly unpredictable.  Past incidents, which are highly documented in the history of criminal/drug interdiction patrol stops, clearly demonstrate that there are inherent risks in traffic stops. The attendee will be taught to think about having a personal defense strategy, to avoid injury and to stay alive.
This course also concentrates on improving the attendees conversational and observational skills to facilitate the development of reasonable suspicion/probable cause during a criminal/drug interdiction patrol stop. Of the many law enforcement activities that must be performed, the roadside interview truly approaches the category of an art.  It takes talent, a natural inclination to perform the task well, study, and practice to develop the basic skills, as well as continual self-analysis and cultivation of talents and skills in the questioning process.  The attendee will be shown how to adapt their own personality to the various situations and the personalities of the people whom they will encounter during the roadside interview process. The attendee will be taught how to develop a style that is distinctive and then how to improve it through studied experience. The course will show the attendee the importance of establishing rapport, as well as becoming a better listener.  Attendees will be taught specific techniques that detect criminal/drug trafficking activity and how to view every roadside interview in totality. Through the analyzing of actual traffic stop videos the attendee will be shown that no single behavior standing alone proves anything during the traffic stop encounter.  The method of instruction for this section will involve the implementation of various video clips from actual criminal/drug interdiction patrol stops that are designed to show the teaching points and encourage class discussion.
The attendee will be taught with a step-by-step approach on how to identify and locate manual, electronically controlled aftermarket compartments in passenger motor vehicles that are widely used today by Transnational Criminal Organizations (Drug Trafficking Organizations). 
Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will have an in-depth knowledge of the proper working techniques of Criminal Patrol and Drug Interdiction.
