TRAINING on Gangs and Guns

Several districts have recently requested the "Gangs and Guns: Making Your Firearms Case More Prosecutable" training. This training is facilitated by Subject Matter Experts Stephen Barborini and James Grindey, and familiarizes both new and seasoned law enforcement patrol officers, investigators, prosecutors, and supervisors with techniques to make "solid" firearms cases. Segments of this training are currently available virtually.

ASSESSMENT on Detective Function

SMEs Tom Woodmansee and Garrett Zimmon are conducting a virtual Detective Function Assessment for a sheriff's office in a PSN district. The goal of the assessment is to review and assess the criminal case management and detective functions for the sheriff's office. This assessment has been particularly popular within PSN districts.
