Course Description

The IACP PSN Initiative works to improve law enforcement’s capacity to interdict firearms trafficking and disrupt gang activity. In collaboration with state, local, tribal, and federal partners, the IACP provides site specific, regional technical assistance sessions, and resources to improve law enforcement’s gun/gang violence reduction and prosecution efforts. Course attendees walk away with tips on making observations of an individual’s body movement, clothing behaviors, crime gun recovery, keen observations during traffic stops, and testimony for successful prosecution. This course includes detailed instruction on identifying persons who carry concealed firearms, legal issues regarding stop and frisk, and articulating probable cause for searches.
