K9-14: Criminal Interdiction Course
Tripwire’s criminal interdiction training in PA consists of a comprehensive 16-hour course specifically designed for patrol/K-9 officers. Criminal interdiction courses are offered by our Training Division, which has been providing explosives-related training for federal, state and local law enforcement agencies for nearly a decade. All criminal interdiction training is conducted by seasoned professionals who are dedicated to serving the needs of First Responders across the U.S.
Learn How to Interact With Your Canine
A highlight of our criminal interdiction course is teaching K-9 officers how to interact effectively with their dogs during interdiction. You’ll also learn how to use your dog to accurately identify drugs and other contraband, as well as in the identification of homemade explosive labs.
Our criminal interdiction training also explores the various safety procedures when investigating clandestine labs. Finally, you’ll review case law that will serve as an invaluable guide during the interdiction of contraband.
Developing and Establishing Reasonable Suspicion
Our criminal interdiction training courses take a close look at the concept of reasonable suspicion. You’ll learn about each of the key elements involved in developing reasonable suspicion, and you’ll discover the appropriate actions to take upon establishing that reasonable suspicion exists in a particular situation.
Conducting an Effective Roadside Interview
All patrol officers will benefit from the portion of our criminal interdiction course pertaining to conducting a roadside interview. You’ll learn how to “look beyond the ticket” to gain a more in-depth understanding of the situation at hand.
The course includes a practical, scenario-based training experience that can be applied to real-world interdiction situations. Other training courses we offer include explosives training, homeland security training, K-9 inert device training and much more.
