Situational policing

Course leader:

Situational policing recognizes the various stages of the progressive relationship between police and the communities they serve.  As communities move through different developmental stages, the police must respond to each of these stages, and these responses may be based upon community maturity/organizational maturity; community relations; and community and organizational expectations. The model presented is flexible enough to adapt to any policing environment and can help police leaders in setting their strategic goals and objectives.

Managing victims of crime

Victims are frequently lost in the police and criminal justice system when they are the very people that the police need to support. This program examines how to speak to the victims of crime, and includes such complexities and sensitivities as victims of sexual assault; child victims, and cultural issues when dealing with victims. It also examines how to set and manage expectations; how to support victims through the investigations and prosecution of a criminal trial, and how to establish and maintain victim confidence in police response.
