Field Training Officer

Field Training Officer (FTO) Program

The future of a police department is significantly impacted by the field training officer (FTO). The FTO is a vital member of the department, responsible for training new recruits and determining the viability of these recruits as law enforcement officers. When FTOs are properly trained, they can help make sound personnel decisions and avoid future performance and legal issues.

The Penn State Justice and Safety Institute (JASI) is pleased to partner with our co-sponsor to offer this powerful three-day program, which is designed to prepare officers for field-training responsibilities. Rather than using a previously formulated method of instruction, we teach what we believe to be the best of each method, and then allow trainees to devise their own program. This highly interactive class places an emphasis on imparting the knowledge and skills needed to properly train and mentor recruits for work as Jaw enforcement officers. All of our courses are instructed by current practitioners or recently retired executives. Key concepts and topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Elements of the Communication Process
    • Tailoring to departmental needs
    • Motivational and descriptive communication
  • Adult Learning Concepts
  • Concepts of Appraisal
    • Evaluating the trainee’s performance based on policy procedures and guidelines
  • Evaluating Training Performance
    • Evaluation based on an employee’s performance while completing basic tasks
    • Counseling of a trainee based on positive or weak performance
  • Ethical Issues
    • Counseling of the trainee on the issues of ethics and the performance of duty
  • Job-Task Analysis and Patrol Function
  • Review of FTO forms
  • Group and Individual Exercises

Management’s Rights

This course teaches that the employment relationship is an enforceable contract wherein management has inherent and enforceable rights. These rights include requiring employees to: attend work on a regular basis, give a fair day’s work, be subordinate, lawful to directives, perform to standards, get along with others and to be loyal to their employer’s lawful business needs. The problem is that the traditional people-oriented style of management has been seriously weakened by 40 years of employee labor and employee rights laws. A performance-oriented model of management based on principles found in contract law, economics and Performance Theory is a more powerful, practical, simpler and enforceable alternative. We are a “How to” company providing answers.

Topics include:

  • understanding why management must move away from people management and move towards performance management.
  • provide support for the fact that courts and arbiters support the enforcement of management’s rights
  • define the “Universal Rights” of management
  • design the foundation for a performance­ oriented style of management

Attendees will receive a certificate of training, a class manual and hard copies of model forms and policies to use as resources for implementing this program into their agency. Class size is limited, please register early.

Internal Investigations Functions

Internal Investigations Functions

Internal investigations are essential to the efficient operation of any public safety forces agency. Investigations of this nature are crucial to our democratic system of checks and balances. The lack of clear understanding of the due process principles that govern the investigation, failing to conduct investigations properly, and not having well documented cases are the major reasons why investigators fail, cases are lost, and agencies are sued and discredited.

Topics:

  • The essential principles of Constitutional Due Process in an I.A. Investigation
  • Review of three leding U.S. Constitutional cases affecting due process in internal investigations: Garrity v. State of New Jersey, 385 U.S. 493 (1967), Gardner v. Broderick v. Police commissioner of New York City 392 U.S. 273 (1968), Kastinger v. United States, 406 U.S. 441 (1972).
  • Employee Representation (National Labor Relations Board v. J. Weingarten, Inc., 420 U.S. 251 (1975)
  • Avoiding civil torts and liabilities
  • Practical approaches to I. A. Investigations
  • How to document the I. A. case
