Like the street, the courtroom arena has become more dangerous and complex. The stakes are incredibly high for officers and the communities they serve. Nothing exposes officers to more intense, public, microscopic scrutiny than a courtroom. One appearance can forever enhance or tarnish the officer's reputation and her department's. One officer's loss of credibility can set a criminal free and deprive a victim of justice.
Our officers are honest and competent. They care deeply and work diligently. They deserve courtroom training and preparation that incorporates available knowledge and science into real scenarios. They deserve training that is worthy of them and the risks and challenges they willingly face – on the street and in court.
