ID : 37643   
« back to classes page
Hawkeye Community College will be hosting Professional Law Enforcement Training’s Knock and Talk Investigation Techniques. Knock and Talk operations, when conducted properly, can be a very successful tactic to combat illegal narcotics trafficking. Officers must receive proper training and understand the limitations of knock & talks in order for this tactic to be effective. This intense one day training course will provide in-depth information and proper techniques and tactics for officers to conduct knock & talk operations. Often times, the difference between reasonable suspicion and probable cause determines if a knock & talk violated the 4th Amendment. Officers will be presented with material to clearly define those differences. Sample policies and procedures will be provided during the course. In an effort to prevent history from repeating itself, case studies supported by video surveillance will be presented where knock & talks turned deadly. The course is presented by veteran instructors who actively use knock & talk techniques to gain entry into suspected drug violators’ residences and seize large quantities of drugs, firearms and US currency.  Tuition: $149 per officer, $129 if 5+ register at once.
