This updated course enhances the capabilities of FTO’s, Corporals, Sergeants, and Team Leaders* responsible for the resolution of critical incidents in a patrol environment.  It will strengthen the student’s knowledge, skills & techniques to successfully initiate a credible action plan to handle various critical incidents, and to be able to communicate and justify your actions in a post-incident critique.  This course may reduce litigation when supporting department actions in these highly litigated events.
