Vehicle Stops Instructor
This five-day class is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to teach a traffic stops program to in-service personnel and/ or basic academy cadets. Classroom time will be devoted to an overview of tactics and discussion of current case law and the Ohio Revised Code as it pertains to common traffic stop encounters. Time will also be used to cover teaching philosophies and techniques. Traffic Stop scenarios will be performed with both actual vehicles/roll players and using firearms/driving simulators. The curriculum mirrors instruction of the the basic academy program. Students will be required to assist with instruction of a Basic Traffic Stops Course during the last three days of class. The focus of the course is in teaching the program rather than performing the techniques as students.
Note: It is recommended, but not required, that students attend a three day basic traffic stops program or equivalent prior to attendance in this course. This is an instructor level course. Emphasis is placed on teaching of techniques, knowledge and skills. Students will teach, critique and remediate more than they perform training scenarios.
Equipment required: Duty gear, firearm, duty body armor, groin and eye protection, baseball cap, frisk gloves, BDU style trousers and jacket along with clothing for foul weather possibilities. Simulated firearm training equipment may be used.
