Force Science 2-Day Realistic De-Escalation Instructor Course

Open to DVWCT and DVPLT Law Enforcement.  Scholarship Opportunity.

The Trust has partnered with the Force Science Institute to offer a 2-Day Realistic De-Escalation Instructor Course on April 1 and 2, 2020 at the Trust Training Room, 719 Dresher Road, Horsham, PA. The Workers’ Compensation and Property & Liability Trusts are offering 25 scholarships for a 50% tuition reimbursement (limit 2 scholarships per member entity). This course is open to both law enforcement officers and de-escalation instructors.

Course Description: This course thoroughly dissects the complex concept of “de-escalation” and the many elements involved in determining its feasibility and effectiveness in a variety of encounters. This information is also critical for investigators and administrators when evaluating the feasibility of employing de-escalation techniques in a pressurized, rapidly unfolding encounter. The course—crucial for virtually all law enforcement professional trainers, from street officers and field supervisors to investigators, attorneys and administrators—mutes the rhetoric prevalent in today’s emotionally charged atmosphere and unbiasedly focuses on the proven scientific realities surrounding human behavior as they apply to efforts to de-escalate situations. It will present concepts and methods to support de-escalation efforts when personal connections can be made. Attendees will be provided with knowledge to apply to, and to address the needs of those in mental health crisis or those whose perception of reality is altered. The course is designed to improve the law enforcement officer’s ability to manage human beings by enhancing skills to establish contact, build rapport, and gain influence to achieve a police objective.

Public Entity Controls to Identify and Prevent Fraud

Open to DVPLT members at no cost.

Unfortunately, fraud can happen anywhere, even in the best run organizations and perpetrated by the nicest people. The question is not “could fraud happen here?” but “how can we deter fraud?” and if it does occur, “how quickly can we identify it?”  Fraud deterrence and detection is the responsibility of everyone in your organization. This presentation will look at several real life municipal fraud case studies.  It will discuss not only what went wrong in each case but also identify the red flags and what controls could have been in place to identify and prevent the fraud.  It will also review how to conduct a fraud risk assessment and how to create a culture of accountability. Managers, supervisors, finance directors, human resource directors and elected officials are encouraged to attend.
