Malignant Communications - 8:30 am to 11:30 am - Course Number CR-547

Words matter, and when they originate from an authority figure they matter even more. "Malignant" means disposed to cause harm, suffering, or distress; showing ill will; dangerous or harmful in influence or effect; likely to spread or get worse; and characterized by uncontrolled growth. "Communications" are the exchanges of thoughts and information from one person to another through verbal and non-verbal means.

The communications between a private citizen and a member of law enforcement, the medical community, a first responder, a counselor, an instructor, or any other person tasked to deal with the public are under greater observation and criticism than ever. Orders, directives, requests, questions, and even answers given without consideration for their effect often lead to serious problems such as officer and citizen safety situations, prolonged confrontations, formal complaints, poor public relations, and impediments in completing assigned tasks. Words have effects, and toxic words and gestures can metastasize from oral arguments to physical confrontations.

This workshop discusses common expressions and mannerisms that may seem innocuous, but often are received with anger and resentment. It will also look at the delivery of oral messages that can be more damaging than the words themselves. The intent is to provide an objective analysis of human communications between a public servant and a private citizen and to utilize less damaging words and mannerisms so that the organization’s objectives can be met in as non-confrontational manner as possible.

Drug Paraphernalia- 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm - Course Number CR-548

Police officers, probation officers, drug treatment specialists, and many other professionals in the fields of law enforcement and/or drug-related occupations encounter an ever-growing number of drug abusers during routine enforcement and supervisory activities. With the increase in the number of types and methods of use of various drugs, the Internet has become a major source for the sale and instruction in the use of a variety of drug devices and their concealment.

This workshop presents a discussion of many of these devices, packaging techniques and other drug-related paraphernalia that are commonplace to those who frequent the "social media", or who pick up ideas from other users. With the increase in prescription medicine abuse and the use of "medical marijuana", the methods of using drugs has changed; and the devices - home-made or professionally made - have also changed.

Topics include paraphernalia involved with the new forms of cannabis and other drugs, throw-away devices, paraphernalia available for sale on-line, drug hides, and procedures for hiding drugs in plain view.
