Domestic Violent Extremism Pilot Course (2 day)

Utah State Fire Marshals Office

Drones
Monday, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Extremism stemming from political, religious, and cultural beliefs is not a new phenomenon, nor is the violence that sometimes occurs as a result. The difficulty in combatting extremism lies in the many forms it takes, as well as the rapid evolution of technology as a method of radicalization and recruitment. How does one distinguish the indicators of dangerous extremism from those of legally protected speech and action while maintaining community and responder safety? Participants in Detecting Domestic and Homegrown Violent Extremism are introduced to the differences between domestic and homegrown violent extremism, indicators of extremist behavior, characteristics of recruitment, radicalization, and the legal safeguards that protect civil rights and privacy. Additionally, the course covers methods that improve responder safety and techniques to counter extremist threats through interagency and community partnerships.

ARIDE (2 day)

Monday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
442 West Forest Street, Brigham City

ARIDE: A Training Option Bridging the GAP Between SFST and DRE The Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) program was developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) with input from the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Technical Advisory Panel (TAP) and the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police. ARIDE was created to address the gap in training between the Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) and the Drug Evaluation and Classification (DEC) Program. The SFST program trains officers to identify and assess drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol while the DEC Program provides more advanced training to evaluate suspected drug impairment. The SFST assessment is typically employed at roadside, while an officer trained as a drug recognition expert (DRE) through the DEC Program conducts a drug evaluation in a more controlled environment such as a detention facility. The ARIDE program was designed to bridge the gap between the SFST program and the DEC program by providing field officers with general knowledge related to drug impairment, and promoting the use of a DRE in drug impairment cases. Students enrolled in the ARIDE program will be required to demonstrate proficiency in SFST testing. Another focus of the ARIDE program is obtaining the proper biological sample for impairment cases. This is a 16 hour training course, taught in two days. Enrollment in this class is limited to 30 students. There is no cost for this training. (Bring your computer, the manual will be given to you to download) Contact Senior Trooper Arlow Hancock with questions or for more information at ahancock@utah.gov (801)381-5417 To register for the class, have your sergeant enroll you via the Google Shared Drive under Training Schedule and then ARIDE. If you are non-UHP contact Heidi Dunn at heididunn@utah.gov to sign up.

128 North 100 East (Joseph D. Adams Public Safety Building), Lehi

Most agencies struggle with hiring and retaining quality recruits. Having well trained FTOs can make the difference between recruits successfully passing the Field Training Program or not. Most agencies talk about the FTO being one of the most important positions in the department, but then don’t put much thought into the specifics of the training course they attend. They simply find an FTO course that has an opening for their FTO to attend and wait for them to come back with a certification. Unfortunately, some of the FTOs we polled didn’t feel adequately prepared by the certification course they attended. Consider what happens when an unprepared FTO is paired up with a struggling trainee? You invest a lot of time and money into hiring a recruit, and your FTOs are responsible for getting those recruits through the Field Training Program. Their ability to teach, evaluate and document can make all the difference, especially when it comes to remediating a struggling recruit. Your FTOs are preparing your new officers to be the future of your department so FTOs need the proper training to do so. • We use only expert level instructors to get the students thinking critically. The instructors show the students how to teach from Day 1. Our experts make your FTOs experts! • Students practice evaluating live role players so they graduate ready for the real thing. • They learn specifically how to apply the Standard Evaluation Guidelines (i.e. what number to rate the trainee). They receive examples of good and bad performance reports. They really get to know what to write and what to avoid for liability reasons. • They receive hands-on practice and personalized feedback after writing several Daily Observation Reports and Remedial Training Plans. • The students learn how to mentor and counsel a wide variety of trainees in the top 10 situations they will be most likely to encounter.
