Warrant Service - Level 2

Next Course Dates: Call us to schedule a course for your department.

Police officers on a daily basis are executing search warrants both in a dynamic fashion and in a slow and deliberate fashion. While some Officers have the basic knowledge of how to accomplish these searches very few have had the opportunity to train in a realistic “shots fired”, “officer down, citizen down, or suspect down” scenario. Fortunately these incidents are rare in nature; however, when one does occur it is critical members have an idea on how to respond and what is required. In addition, few officers have had the chance to train “shoot / do not shoot” scenarios in a realistic atmosphere with use of SIMUNITION®. This greatly enhances the officer’s ability to appropriately react in a given situation.

Officers would learn the procedure on how to react with regards to shots being fired, someone being shot and requiring rescue, and how to enhance officer decision-making ability through realistic training scenarios with the use of SIMUNITION®.

The warrant service scenarios in this Level II course are designed to be more challenging to the participant and will enhance their skills learned on the Level I course.

PRESENTS:

Ferguson Debrief, Michael Brown Shooting
by
Captain Kurt Frisz
St. Louis County Police Dept.

Captain Kurt Frisz has been with the St. Louis County, Missouri Police Department for 29 years and has served on the department’s Tactical Operations Unit for 17 years; 7 of these years were in a leadership capacity serving as the unit’s Commander. During this time, he has commanded over 100 hostage/barricade situations and oversaw the operational and administrative response to numerous civil unrest situations. Captain Frisz has gained the credibility as an effective police leader and has carried this skill set in furthering police relationships with other organizations including city hall, various security agencies, and Emergency Management and Preparedness in St. Louis County which has a population of over one million people.

Synopsis

On August 9th, 2014, an unarmed 18 year old male named Michael Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer. The incident triggered numerous days of protests and unrest where there was looting, vandalism, and even burning buildings. There were intense clashes between the police and protesters; some businesses closed and some school districts cancelled classes for the week. Protests spread into other cities and the matter received national and international attention.

On November 24th, 2014, the grand jury declined to indict the officer that killed Michael Brown. This then led to another wave of violence and protesting.

For the first time, Captain Kurt Frisz will debrief the incident. Captain Frisz was not only present during the unrest, but he also served as part of the Department’s Command Leadership element which included crisis management, police response, and postincident management involving various stakeholders (police and civilian).

Captain Frisz will debrief the following topics:

  • Perception vs reality; The facts surrounding the shooting of Michael Brown
  • The effective management of police resources including the appropriate use of riot squads and SWAT teams
  • The role of leadership and command structure
  • The role of media; public education balanced with officer safety
  • Government influence in a crisis
  • The militarization of policing in North America
  • The importance of police and community collaboration
  • The role of Emergency Management, Preparedness, and Crisis Management: lessons for both police, public, and private organizations
  • Promising practices and lessons learned
