In May 2015, the United States Department of Justice released the comprehensive findings of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. That report summarized six primary findings related to nearly every facet of criminal justice, including training and education. This course satisfies multiple areas covered in the task force report and consists of one module, designed to expand participant knowledge in the areas of body worn cameras and law enforcement’s role regarding electronic recordings by the public.

The process of communication is very important to us as law enforcement officers. What we say is important but how we say it is more important. E-based communication is devoid of emotion and there is no room for implied meaning. Written words stand alone, unless you use emojis. It is through the use of body language, tone, and expression that communication comes to life. Awareness of non-verbal communication (our own and others) will require a little work that will pay large dividends down the road.
We will also be looking at intrinsic bias—how bias influences our lives, how to develop strategies to be aware of our hidden bias and a framework for us to apply in not only our professional but personal life to identify when negative bias may be providing influence. We will look at what intrinsic bias is (both the positive and negative side of it), how it influences the decision-making process, and how EQ (specifically empathy) helps us identify our bias and gain an understanding of those we work with and serve.

Hours: 1
This course covers violent radicalization in the context of the Islamic State Group alternatively called ISIS, ISIL and DAESH. It looks at the genesis of this group on social media, the process of recruitment of men and women into the group from their own social media postings, and attempts made to counter their influence online by the State Department, U.S. military forces and NGO’s. This UNCLASSIFIED presentation will examine the role that social media plays in ISG cyber operations through screenshots of first-person conversations conducted with ISG Foreign Terrorist Fighters from the West (including Europe), as well as their supporters.
