Basic Patrol Rifle School

This course is designed to teach officers the operational fundamentals and the responsibilities of deploying with a patrol rifle. Officers will be trained in nomenclature, care, shooting positions, marksmanship, and malfunction drills. In addition, officers will also be exposed to reality-based training scenarios which are designed to test the skills they have learned in order to deploy their patrol rifles.

The officers will actually use their own rifles for these force-on-force drills. Their rifles will have the firing bolts removed and training bolts inserted; training bolts are only capable of firing training munitions. This allows officers to participate in the scenarios with their actual weapons firing only training munitions.

This course is designed to expose and prepare officers with the basic skills needed to become proficient with patrol rifle resources.

Developing a Cyber Incident Response Plan

According to Data Insider Editor Chris Brook, "In the U.S.. a data breach costs a company on average $8.19 million, an increase from $7.91 million in 2018, and more than twice the global average... The cost per breached record, $242, is steeper too..." ("What's the Cost of a Data Breach in 2019?" digitalguardian.com, December 1, 2020).

Have you given thought to how your constituents might react if your data was compromised? What if criminals had access to their dates of birth, social security numbers and banking information? Would these individuals show up at public meetings? What would be the cost to your entity's reputation?

Developing a cyber incident response plan is a first step in mitigating these risks. By doing so, you know that, if a data breach occurs, you have a sound plan of action and are equipped to immediately respond to the breach. This training session will provide members with the rationale and tools for developing such a plan for their entities. While the development of cyber incident response plans may be the responsibility of IT staff, everyone within the organization can benefit from an understanding of why these plans are critical during these times when cyber breaches have become a daily occurrence.

Sexual Harassment Active Bystander Training

Harassment claims - including sexual harassment and discrimination - continue to garner unwanted media attention and result in resignations, litigations, and court settlements. This behavior has a negative impact on employers and employees. MMRMA encourages employee training to help prevent members from experiencing this type of conduct. Active Bystander Training seeks to prevent unwanted and unlawful conduct between and among all personnel, from the employee to the CEO. This strategic training guides participants to ACT in a way that demonstrates and voices disapproval of sexual misconduct they may see or hear. Employees will learn to recognize inappropriate workplace behavior and understand that this behavior is illegal, demeaning and won't be tolerated. This course is designed for employees in all positions within an organization.

Sexual Harassment Training for Managers and Supervisors

In 2015, the EEOC received over 6,800 reports of sexual harassment, with settlements reaching $46 million. Administrative discrimination charges and lawsuits are rising, accompanied by an increase in settlement and judicial awards. Learn how to minimize risk to your entity's reputation, protect yourself from claims of sexual harassment, and understand the legal responsibilities of managers and supervisors to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. This training will help you develop and enforce sound sexual harassment policies and cultivate a culture in which every employee may work in an environment free from sexual harassment.

Solo Response to Active Shooter

Active shooter response tactics have been  modified over the last 20 years to meet the challenges that these very violent events present to emergency first responders. Police officers must plan and train for every type of contingency, whether it is the first officer arriving on the scene, a pair of officers, or an organized team.Each response requires training in hopes of minimizing confusion and resulting in an optimal conclusion.

Many of our law enforcement agencies may not have the resources t field a large group of officers. Waiting for even a second officer to arrive may affect the lives of innocent bystanders and provide unnecessary time for evil doers to continue their violent assaults. This course is designed to prepare a first responder to arrive, assess and approach the scene of an active shooter with the knowledge and abilities to take appropriate action to mitigate the consequences of these kinds of events. 

↑ Top

Tactical Encounters for Patrol Officers

This course will focus on tactically demanding situations such as traffic stops, arrest situations, building entries/searches, low-light tactics, and high-risk calls, which challenge the officer's decision-making process. It stresses positive mental mindset, which is paramount for officer survival. It also has an entire day of firearms training that transitions from basic fundamentals to advanced combat skills. The bulk of this class will involve reality-based training scenarios using force-on-force munitions.

Temporary Traffic Control Training

Training will cover Temporary Traffic Control (TTC), traffic regulator awareness, and worksite safety based on the 2011 Michigan Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MMUTCD) Part 6, the 2010 Michigan Traffic Regulator Instructional Manual, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Maintenance Work Zone Traffic Control Guidelines, and applicable MIOSHA standards. The Michigan Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MMUTCD) will be issued to attendees for use in class. 

The session will focus on the importance of roadway worker safety in minimizing their vulnerability and risk of personal injury while working on or near the roadway and at the worksite. Training will also include with a safety review of worker fatality statistics, excavations, working around equipment and blind-spots, utility hazards, winter operations, PPE, and seatbelt requirements.

Weather Watcher Exercise - CANCELLED

The Weather Watcher program was developed in coordination with the National Weather Service in Chicago and several local emergency management agencies.

This program is designed to provide event organizers and safety personnel the tools necessary to plan and proactively prepare for potential weather impacts BEFORE the threat occurs.

This Weather Watcher Exercise follows the Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program (HSEEP) and is HSEEP compliant (3.5 hours) and is designed to provide a hands-on approach to increase situational awareness.

Why a Weather Watcher?

Have you ever been responsible for safety of an outdoor event? If so, you have probably had concerns about the weather.

Weather is a key component of any effective outdoor event action plan. A thorough evaluation of weather hazards and continuous monitoring of evolving hazards can lead to more confident and effective decisions regarding the safety of event-goers. The weather watcher is the person who is designated to maintain situational awareness of the weather both before and during your event and can activate your weather safety plan.

This exercise will outline the functions of the weather watcher, outline a weather evaluation and monitoring process that the weather watcher can follow and provide an overview of key forecast and monitoring products and tools utilized by the weather watcher.

More details about the Weather Watcher program can be found online: https://www.weather.gov/iwx/weatherwatcher
