“In Roads I”
Criminal Patrol and Drug Enforcement

Hours: 8
Tuition: $125

Program Information:

This 8 hour course teaches the basics of criminal and narcotic enforcement for patrol officers. It is considered interdiction for “Main St” and is taught by a Sheriff’s Deputy who has made unprecedented drug and drug money seizures while working in a normal patrol function. “In Roads” also instructs on a patented “Math for Probable Cause” approach that helps officers dissect a traffic stop and piece together important factors to form a structured roadside investigation. “In Roads” promotes all patrol officers to be the sentry at the gate for their own community for all variables of crime, including terrorism.

Topics Include:

  • Identifying common routes of contraband smugglers

  • Observing criminal driving behavior

  • Approach to traffic stops staying in the “scope” during traffic stop conversation

  • Observation of trafficking profiles for vehicles and vehicle contents
