PEER SUPPORT & MENTORING IN LAW ENFORCEMENT

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  The first line of defense against employee failure is the recognition of the first stages of peer crisis and by providing early intervention. Even better is to provide support from the first day of hire through employee development. This is difficult in the public safety arena for many reasons. Public safety employees are not trusting of individuals outside their peer groups. Public safety employees have heard hollow promises ad nauseam from those claiming to want to help. Public safety employees can quote horror stories of peers who have stepped forward for help only to face agency or legal sanction or loss of employment. Public safety employees don’t want to appear weak by admitting they need help. And yes, public safety employees sometimes are too smart for their own good and resist attempts from well-intentioned peers unless it is already a formal and accepted part of their agency culture.

Agencies with healthy peer support and mentoring teams can successfully reduce the onset and life cycle of employee distress through a combination of proactive and reactive responses. Mentors are trained to work with new employees and coach them through the early rough patches. Peer support responds to critical incidents or employee personal or professional crisis. Peer support members and mentors work in partnership to ensure long term support for peer employees and their families through a formal cooperative design.

SEARCHING MOBILE DEVICES

The Supreme Court’s decision was unanimous and emphatic. Absent exigent circumstances or other warrantless search exception, such as searchable probation or parole, law enforcement officers will need to obtain a warrant to search a suspect’s phone. Law enforcement officers are presented with a choice when considering the new requirement. We can lament the decision and complain about how it made an already difficult job more complicated or we can adapt. As a benefit, investigators can leverage the probable cause requirement to target sources of information that were previously overlooked such as provider records, cell site location data, application data, and backup files. Obtaining a search warrant has additional benefits. It makes it more difficult for a defense attorney to suppress evidence obtained as a result of the judicially authorized search. It also gives law enforcement officers the opportunity to hone their search warrant writing skills, which can then be applied to other criminal investigations requiring a warrant. Search warrants will no longer be considered the exclusive purview of the experienced investigator, detective, or narcotics officer. Patrol officers and deputies will find themselves writing search warrants for phones to recover evidence related to their arrests. Nearly everyone has a phone or mobile device and almost every crime can involve those devices. It is difficult to commit a crime without using a mobile device before, during, or after the commission of a crime. The evidence of those crimes rests in the suspect’s mobile device and in the records maintained by the provider. The choice is simple. Either write a warrant to search the phone or don’t and miss critical evidence in a criminal investigation. The search warrant requirement may add some time and effort to complete an investigation, but in the long run, the Supreme Court decision is a benefit for the law enforcement community.

SEATED BATTERY OF FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS

Date and Time: TBA

Description:

**Students must be currently proficient on the NHTSA standing battery of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests.**

The National Association of Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) in conjunction with the United States Coast Guard and the Southern California Research Institute (SCRI) have developed an alternative, validated battery of field sobriety tests.  This battery of tests was originally developed for use in ‘Boating Under the Influence’ cases, but has proven robust and reliable for individuals suspected of DUI for whom the standing NHTSA battery of tests would be inappropriate.  This includes people with knee, leg or back injuries or other disabilities.

This battery of field tests will provide a valuable addition to the skill set of any officer that routinely enforces DUI laws.  The course consists of classroom instruction and test battery practice with volunteer drinkers.
