About the Course

Most law enforcement courses have a clear practical application (i.e. defensive tactics, report writing). Most courses, both at the Academy level or private are reactionary, responding to current needs. Very few classes in the Field are forward thinking, proposing solutions to projected problems and issues of tomorrow. This course is one of the latter category. While this class address contemporary issues, its main goal is to help agencies prepare to navigate the coming shift in mission and responsibilities as related to drug laws, de-criminalization, incarceration, treatment and prevention.
