Roll call/briefing training

I need some good ideas for simple, no "certified instructor", short briefing training for my troops.

These will ideally be things that we review as a troop, with everyone's input, not taught just by me or one of the officers. We all bring something to the table, and the idea is to share and improve everyone's skills.

We will start with a refresher on how to remove uncooperative suspects from the car. We will grab an unmarked unit (without a prisoner divider) and work on some techniques that work.

Next will be a hot-stop (high-risk vehicle contact) refresher.

These can be practical, table-top kind of things, or just discussion. Whatcha got?

Building clearing.

Handcuffing.

Proper searches.

Read an agency policy each day out loud during briefing.

I was on one patrol team where we would use the whiteboard and re-enact calls (debrief) or even discuss how to handle certain types of calls; gun calls, bank robberies, break and enters in progress, hazmat, etc.

+1....

At my old dept. had a guy arrested for DUI. Deputy brought him to county, did some more test on the guy. The testing area is right next to booking / intake. Deputy called asking for assistance with the suspect as he became a little unruly. Well they brought him over to intake, placed him in a cell where he was searched, and a loaded handgun was found on him.

Now this person was with the arresting deputy for at least 45mins-hour intoxicated with a loaded gun.

Pucker factor.

Beyond this, scenario type search and seizure questions. If your courts public opinions in an easily accessible manner, snag them as they appear online and talk them out.

We get regular D.A. newsletters and case law briefings and discuss those as relevant things to know and how does that relate to field work.

Prisoner searches and proper handcuffing are the ones I see done poorly the most, even by experienced officers. Weapon retention is another good one to go over periodically.

You got to really get in there and search every square of their body, despite it not being fun. Check the belt buckle, around their neck, in their socks, and take their shoes off etc....I am guilty of a crappy search on a few occasions. I was really embarrased a few years when one of my prisoners got something inside the jail, and it should have been obvious had I done a proper search. Never again. I search thoroughly immediately after handcuffing and again before entering the jail, and again before removing the handcuffs. If I have backup on scene I ask them to search as well.

Bad handcuffing is my pet peeve. I actually like PPCT handcuffing, its the way I was taught and I still do it every single time. I do realize alot of officers do not like PPCT handcuffing, but whatever your agency authorizes need to be taught and trained on frequently.

Review training on equipment they don't have immediate access to but is carried by supervisors, or locked in the closet at the station.

Our ballistic shields are carried by SGTs; & just being reminded that they are there is good from time to time.

The department's Bearcat is accessible to anyone in an emergency, but comes with a full page of instructions.

All good ideas. We already do some of this regularly (case law / new legislation, handcuffing, etc), but some suggestions are new. This is great. Keep the thread going and we'll have us a nice list for future reference.

I'll second cuffing and searching. From a corrections standpoint, it boggles my mind how horrible of a job most street cops do of searching a prisoner. I was always told that, if you both weren't a little uncomfortable at the end of it, you didn't do it right. I also really like Broke Hoss's idea of training on infrequently used equipment from time to time; we do that as time permits behind the fence as well. Especially things that may be issued individually, but may degrade over time (like gas masks, with the filters clogging, etc); it also gives you the opportunity to make sure stuff is in working order while you're training.

Yep, but I think those of us that have worked behind the wall are just friendlier.

Don't forget to add searching car after every transport, start of/end of duty to your search discussions.

Haha, yeah. Sorry, I didn't mean for that to come across as an a-hole comment; just more of an observation I've had. I certainly don't mean it directed at individuals on here.

Anything about those darn NRA or any veteran affiliate stickers? You know all those people are just on the fringe and ready for violence, right?

PPCT = Pressure Point / Control Tactics, it's just one of the many courses taught to LEO's in some areas, on a particular method of cuffing, controlling, striking, and takedowns.

PPCT cuffing is done a little backwards than the "top down" method that many of us learned in the academy. I'm not an instructor so I won't attempt to describe it, but my dept does send us to PPCT every few years.
